This was our very first time to Cefalu. It was my mother's dream to visit this place for a REALLY long time and this year in August, her wish came true thanks to our friends!

My cousins took my family and I here for the day, I must say these pictures do it no justice. It's one of the most beautiful places I have been to. I highly recommend it to everyone who loves beautiful scenery. My family and I were totally blown away. Enjoy your stay.

We had some of the best food we had ever eaten. Our hotel was o k , but their restaurant was a disaster, so we ate out a lot. Even a small pizza cafe we came across served properly made pizza & I think they were the best I had ever had.

After a day or so of exploring Cefalu and surrounding area a visitor whether foreign or Italian cannot imagine not making plans to return and continue enjoying the sea,the coast,the sites and,naturally,the food and wine!

One of the most beautiful beaches ever. Standing in the water, clear water, warm water, and looking up at the hillside at the town. Wow. Beaches fill up quick. A must is a walk through the town and the quaint street...the beauty!!

We had a very enjoyable visit to the beach but did not swim as it was too hot. The beach bars offered a nice selection of food and one even has a swim pool in the bar fabulous!

Very nice place. Not so crowdy and full of hotels like costa brava. There are also traditional streets and italian buildings in Cefalu. It is very beautiful city with small restaurants, cafes and narrow streets.
