We spent our last day in Taormina at Lido Mazzaro. Great beach with great service. Love the fact that we didn't have to walk around looking for a drink. Everything was brought to the chairs. Highly recommend the pizza at the restaurant by the entrance (forget the name but I'll find out). One of the better pies we had!

It is easy to get to when you ride the cable car from Taormina, but there is not much free beach to enjoy. Most of the beach is private, taken up by hotels, and there are many boats which come and go in the area of small amount of free beach.

The water is clear and beautiful. The sun beds are expensive but that is Raormina. good restourants, also a bit expensive. You can find jellyfish in the see some time so be cautious.

Although pebbly and you have to pay to stay in particular areas of the beach (10 euros per person for a sunbed and umbrella) there is a public area which was just as good. There are local boats which take you round the coastline to the caves and grottoes (approx. 50 euros) and the setting is beautiful.

Was there briefly for the day and the water was beautiful, a boat tour would probably be a good choice to explore the coastline and coves nearby. I was surprised to see so many people laying on the "beach" which is not soft and sandy but rather all rocks. Smooth rocks in a variety of sizes but would be very... More

Nothing to like, although it was still out of they main season and nothing open which was fine, the condition of the beach and the town appeared dirty and unloved

Mazzaro (accent on the last syllable) compares with those special little scenic coves of the Amalfi Coast or the French and Italian Rivieras. It is bordered by three sizeable towns - the beach towns of Letojanni to the north, Giardini Naxos to the south and Taormina, hanging off the cliffs above. Between all this is not so much a defined... More

This is a nice picturesque sheltered Bay. Yes you have to pay if you want to hire sunbeds, parasols etc but the costs are similar to elsewhere, you can haggle to reduce the cost. The water is slightly unclean due to the tour boats and the sand is a bit shaley. If you can't Park on the road, the cable-car... More

We love Italy and frequently visiting it every year. But Mazzaro beach is the worse in Italy. 1. 99% of all the beach belongs to some 'rich' hotels and you are not allowed to the beach...of course unless you willing to pay for the spot under the sun! 2. Remaining 1% of the beach left for the locals and other... More
