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

We were staying here in the Grand Hotel Mazzaro Sea Palace. The bay was a wonderfully scenic one and the view of it from our balcony was wonderful, especially at sunrise and sunset. There were a couple of nice little restaurants nearby as well and we were 2 minutes away from the cable car up into Taormina itself.

Like all the beaches round Taormina, it's a bit difficult to get to, but at least the cable car drops you only 200 m away. Blue beds and umbrellas at reasonable rates. Very stony beach , so getting into the sea is not easy. But the water is clear & lovely. Snack bar not up to much -- the one... More

We stayed in Taormina for a week and went to Mazzaro for beach time. You can easily reach it from the center by taking the cable car - which by the way is overpriced at 3 euros per person, but anyway... We paid the 7.5 euros per person for the beach chairs at Lido Sporting Mazzaro, again overpriced but that's... More

Sea is nice but this place is a bit overrated. Letojanni or giardini naxos beaches provide better and bigger spaces. Too crowded for my likings
