After a very warm day exploring the Roman Odeon, what better way to unwind, than to relax by the sea!! Taking the cable car down to the seafront we found Lido La Pigna. The restaurant overlooks the beach from a terrace, and given the location, prices for the drinks and food was very reasonable. The service was efficient, and just... More

This is a beautiful bay and this is a professional place to rent sun loungers for the day. We went in October so it was only 8 euros. It was a peaceful spot and the staff seemed helpful. We ordered drinks and lunch which was good food - the paninis were delicious and not very expensive at all. And all... More

Lido La Pigna is situated 50 metres from the Mazzaro - Taormina cable car. It is a restaurant, pizzeria and snack bar that provides sun beds, parasols and showers for the adjacent beach. Given its beachside location the prices were very reasonable and compared favourably with the next bay along, the more commercialised Isla Bella. Lido La Pigna is a... More

A busy beachfront location...this is a very informal, unpretentious restaurant... but a really excellent spot for relaxing over a lunchtime pasta or simple snack with a glass of wine...or two...What makes this place special is the quality of the food, the buzzy atmosphere & the excellent friendly service...& of course the beautiful beach view all around. We loved it!

We went here for the sun-loungers and parasol but ended up having lunch here too. Lovely staff and the meal was good too- great fresh fish and homemade puddings. Overall very pleased.

A beautiful beach located in a little cove with amazing views and great drinks! This beach is definitely more crowded than others that we visited, so make sure to reserve your seats in advance (any hotel would be able to make the reservation for you). There are some water sports available throughout the day and boat rides to tour that... More

Great little cafe right by the sea in Mazzaro near Taormina. Visited a couple of times, would have gone more if it had been open in the evening. Nice salads, grilled sardines, everything we tried was good, a very casual place to eat with great views over the bay, very relaxing, an excellent find!

After years of going to Taormina and having tried out many of the lidos, we always end up back at Lido La Pigna, at the bottom of the cable car from Taormina. Two things: excellent restaurant - casual but top quality. And the vibe. There is something about the place that makes it very relaxing. Chair under umbrella is 15... More

Really enjoyed our days at this beach. You can pre-book your loungers and parasol. A little pricey but well worth it because you get beach service and a nice atmosphere. Also had lunch at the restaurant and it was excellent. Found it to be one of the better beaches in the area.
