We had a wonderful day at this beach. We rented chairs and the service was excellent. We went on a boat cruise that we rented off the beach. It was a blast! Drinks and food were very good.

Friendly staff, clear water, comfy lido. During our last visit to Sicily we experienced many beaches all around the Island and this was by far the nicest one we discovered .We spend every day of our Taormina visit on this beach.

This is a very nice sandy bay and would be a great place to spend time were most of its beach not owned by 2 large hotels. The only place for public swimming etc is a small area by the fishing boats. Two little restaurants on the front- one Delfino was certainly very good indeed

We went in early June so it wasn't crowded and the water was clean. We enjoyed our day here as a respite from the crowds in town. Also had a nice lunch at the restaurant. Enjoyed watching people jumping off the rocks.

Truly awful. A traffic-choked, filthy dirty, terrible mess with a horrible, stony little beach, packed edge-to-edge with expensive sunloungers. Save yourself the cable car fare and just don't go. Really.

Loved the cable car ride to the beach,but an awful lot of steps down to the shingle beach,very hard to walk on as it hurt my feet.It costs 15 euro each for a sunbed and umbrella,rip off so we stayed at our pool for the rest of the time.

We spent our last day in Taormina at Lido Mazzaro. Great beach with great service. Love the fact that we didn't have to walk around looking for a drink. Everything was brought to the chairs. Highly recommend the pizza at the restaurant by the entrance (forget the name but I'll find out). One of the better pies we had!

It is easy to get to when you ride the cable car from Taormina, but there is not much free beach to enjoy. Most of the beach is private, taken up by hotels, and there are many boats which come and go in the area of small amount of free beach.

The water is clear and beautiful. The sun beds are expensive but that is Raormina. good restourants, also a bit expensive. You can find jellyfish in the see some time so be cautious.

The ride down from Taormina affords a spectacular view albeit thru grimy windows. The beach is accessed by a tunnel under the rail line and there are a cluster of restaurants with great views our favorite is lido Di Pigna .beach lounges are for rent and there is a safe swimming area
