A picturesque little bay with deckchair/parasols to rent and good, simple beach restaurants. We used to go to Lido La Pigna. They also have a simple beach bar/restaurant that serves (very) good, simple meals. Very friendly staff who are happy to provide customers with drinks...More

A beautiful beach surrounded by rocks and clear blue waters. Many places to eat and drink. Can even take boat rides from here. Could sit here for hours at a time.

Mazzaro is the most beautiful beach in Sicily - the views are stunning, it's great for snorkelling, the restaurants are very good. A true gem!

We were here in January, so no crowds. Dropped down on the funivia from Taormina for a few hours to stroll the beach beside the clear water, climb among the ruins, and play with the cats. Imagine it is a crowded scene in summer.

Even in post season, the beach is a lovely place to enjoy the sun and the sea. It is the main beach of Taormina and usually overcrowded in summer, but in the autumn - it is a perfect spot!
