Plenty of sun beds and umbrellas provided free of charge by the hotel. Also a very nice beach bar and café.

May be the best small town on the Sicilian coast. Peaceful with good food and shopping. One of the better hiking experiences in Sicily as well. Stayed at a bed & breakfast on the beach with young children that made the experience memorable. Would love to go back again!

Only 1 hour (and €10 return) from Palermo, Cefalú is well worth a visit for its beautiful sandy beaches and ancient Medieval town.

The countryside ranges from a towering butte, La Rocca to a gentle sandy beach onto the cobalt blue waters of the Mediteraen sea

Some of the most breathtaking coastline I have seen anywhere (try and get up into the hills to get a view of the horizon). Cefalu itself is scenic and has kept its character. Its hard to describe but if you go here you will remember it and coastline. There are numerous beaches and the locals will direct you to some... More

Wonderful beaches and water for swimming. A bit too touristy the closer you get to the entrance to the old town.
