Spent the day herw after hearing so many people mention it as an exclusive and beautiful beach. Was dissapointed. The water while clear, had a lot of rubbish floating in it - plastic, band aids etc. We rented 2 beds and an umbrella for €20 at one of the places. They asked us first for €25 but we refused so...

We've been staying in Syracuse and had planned all week to visit Taormina and Mazzaro beach for some "beach time". Even the books we'd read had guarantee a slice of tranquility here. However all was not as it seemed. Taormina itself is pretty and quirky. After the rip off 3 euros per person to the beach via cable car, we... More

There is no "sand" on this beach, nor on others nearby from what I could see but this is a bit of a tourist trap and you're better off travelling down the coast a little to where there is more competition, your money will go a little bit further then and the service will be better as well. One of... More

The view was beautiful and the restaurant staff/lifeguard were really helpful. The food was really nice and everything was good value for money. Will be returning if I got to Taormina again, we went there everyday during our stay!

Chill beach with very clear water. If you have sensitive feet you need to wear water shoes. The water has a good temperature and it's good for swimming.

Again a steep walk down to the beach but once you are there it is worth it. Lido Mazzaro is a lively beach for families and couples. We hired sun loungers for the day and again found these great value for money. Here you can walk directly into the sea from the beach (beach shoes recommended). I loved swimming in... More

My wife and I visited during the first week of June. We found restaurant and beach staff very helpful and pleasant (after a cable car ride and around 100 steps). Unfortunately the same could not be said of the Asian women offering massages on the beach. They came straight up to us and I naively said yes! After a 30... More

Beach itself is nice, but really packed: like 6-10m of beach sand/gravel and then restaurants/shops (from outside - they seem like for stupid tourist expensive places :) ). We arrived from funivia and stairs/env to arrive is quite rubbish... (no surprise, this matches Sicilian style). Water and see view are really nice. During nice day, I believe, it would be... More

Like the location and it had a nice little restaurant right there for lunch. Also some people were wind surfing and some were taking boating trips. The water was absolutely crystal clear like a glass of water because of the pebbled bottom instead of sand.

A day at this beach with a lounge, music and a book provided a wonderful break from 'playing tourist'. Still with pebbles but much easier to manage than Isola Bella's boulders. Beautiful to swim in the warm water…can imagine it would be incredibly crowded in summer so being here in October was just wonderful. Enough people to watch without feeling... More
