Spacious, relatively okay entrance to the sea - no big stones, there is a place for small kids to play. Bus stop is close by. Buy an umbrella and you are happy))

If you are staying in Taormina Mare or Letojanni this makes a nice change to bathe at. Lovely little restaurants and great views.

Nice and safe to swim. You need to walk to the end of the beach for the public beach as a hotel takes over the rest.

The Chinese girls give wonderful massages. I would recommend that you have at least one. You agree the price in advance.

Here you find a shingle beach and the Lido della Pigna serves nice food. The place is a smallish cove with an exclusive hotel at one end. A few small boats offer 45 minute excursions (25 euro each) to Isola Bella, Naxos Bay the Blue Grotto etc. We found it well worth the money and our guide Enzo was excellent... More

Small shingle beach with an even smaller public area to one side, but reasonably clean. Had a dip and a boat ride which was what we wanted. Unfortunately the cablecar down from Taormina was out of action, with a rather tedious replacement bus service instead.

Picturesque bay with several Lidos (private beach clubs with sun chairs for rent). Small, at times crowded free beach to the left/north where also the excursion boats land.

Loved this little slice of heaven beach area below the town of Taormina. great place to hang. Lots of restaurants/cafes. Very close to the cable car lift up to town. Water was too chilly for my like, but it was the first week in June. However many were swimming. You can hire boats for a 50 minute spin around coast... More

Hotel Villa Angela suggested this lido and it was perfect for my family. My kids loved the water there and we even took a short one-hour tour of the beaches nearby. Didn't have lunch there -- we went next door to the Sant'Andrea and it was lovely. Alll in all a great day and break from the August heat.
