By far one of the best beaches on the northern coast near Palermo. Beautiful beach, plenty of shopsx and restaurants a cathedral .......... Be wary of getting a parking ticket if you have a car, whoever deals them out is very vigilant we were only 10 mins over time !

By day the beach is filled with bright umbrellas! There are ones you can rent, plus a public beach were you can bring your own!! Many places on the beach that serve food and drinks. Showers available ( small fee), bathrooms available. Music is playing from each eatery, and dancing around the sand is enjoyable. You can go from high... More

We landed in Palermo but decided to skip the city and head straight to Cefalu, as we don't enjoy the hustle of big tourist cities. It was the perfect choice: beautiful town, plenty to see in the 3 days we were there: the beach, the marina, the town itself, The Rock. It was the perfect introduction to Sicily.

About 45 minutes out of Palermo on the train (5-8 euros each way) - this lovely seaside town is a great day trip. The beach is beautiful and the streets and old part of town very charming. Worth a visit.

The beaches here were really clean and one could also find basic utilities such as toilets and passage ways to go to many of these beaches.

The ride along the Tyrrhenian Sea on the way to the town of Cefalu offers some really beautiful sights. The blues of the sea contrast with the rocky coast and bright flowers. Being only an hour out of Palermo, Cefalu is a great place to spend the day away from the big city. The 12th century Norman cathedral dominates the... More

A large expanse of beach in Cefalu. Less than a hour east of Palermo is another world, away from the city congestion, pollution, noise, and poverty.

this is our favourite place in Sicily so far. pretty streets, churches and piazza's. We took the train from Palermo and its an easy 50min journey...dont catch the slow one. We didnt do the Rock climb due to time, but we walked the rock path by the sea and it was simply lovely
