Lots of different "Lido" play areas, in proximity to historical Cefalu, and fine dining. We enjoyed the walk from our hotel to the historical city. Lots of little shops, great art work, cafes and gelato.

Staying in Cefalu for one week, the beach was a daily activity for us. We always used the public portion of the beach closer to the old pier and enjoyed the natural beach beauty and waves. Sure, it got crowded but I kind of like that. The public areas were nearly all Italian while the pay areas were full of... More

Beutiful beaches and clear blue water. Try to find a beach along the coast, not the beach in cefalu city. A lot of people at the city beach, but the city is a very beautiful and a lot of restaurants.

The main beach is nice but can get crowded, however all along that part of the coast on either side you can find fantastic places to swim and relax. Mostly rocks but they are smooth and not sharp. Afterwards its great to wander slowly through the town and have an icy cool granita.

Fantastic little place with a beautiful beach. We visited Palermo, Catania, Taormina (quite disappointing), Siracusa and Cefalu and liked the last one best of all.

Cefalu is a great place to visit! Lovely beaches and friendly people. One thing always puzzles me with Italy. In the home country of some of the best performing and most beautiful vehicles on the planet....all cars are scratched and dented... be careful in traffic....This is for very experienced drivers. No wonder the local car rentals will take your vacation... More

Never been to Sicily before, we were told on the coach that Cefalu is one if not the best resort. Pearl of the med I've heard it called. Very clean everywhere, and beautiful food in all the restaurants, wine very reasonable and very nice.
