You feel you need to go there once whilst you are in Taormina but not sure you would ever feel you need to go there twice. Cable car down is nice and not expensive. Attitude of the people in-charge of the sunbed areas is one...More

beautiful beach and snorkelling. Ground is stoney and gets very hot- take good soled sandals. There is a lido which is worth paying the 15euros for as well as a bar/ cafe. it gets very busy but well worth a visit.

Nice place but REALLY busy, quite an effort to get to and unless your willing to pay at the private resort there isn't much space to even lay down. The little island nice...but much better beaches out there...
