Cefalu yes , Beach big No
Aug 2021 • Couples
No no no! And again NO.
Only because it’s one of the most beautiful beaches in Sicily doesn’t mean it’s beautiful, right. The beach is long but really slim. Sandy but stony at the same time.
On the weekend it’s way too crowded. Do not go then.
The sun beds are super expensive, 30-40€ For 2, especially compared to other beaches. Sometimes you don’t even have a restroom . So for what are we paying then? And you are forced to listed to really loud bad pop music everywhere. We’ve been to other beaches like Mondello or san Vito lo capo. They are so much better. Of course they are crowded as well but they are much more comfortable. And the panorama is better as well. Also you have proper restrooms and showers , a fence if you pay for sun beds (they are then on a private area) so no seller might bother you every 5 minutes and you get the sun beds for just 20€ For 2.
Visit the beautiful little city Cefalu but do yourself a favour and do not go to beach there. You will regret it. Promise

Overcrowded beach
Aug 2021 • Couples
Absolutely not recommended in August 2021. Not just crowded — much more overcrowded. Was simply looking for a spot on the beach for 2 hours. If you opt for going, book a spot on a “lido” in advance. Otherwise, you will be screwed (like I was). Weekday, btw, not even a weekend.

One of our favorite parts of our trip
Jun 2021
We spent two nights here after three nights on Lipari. Lipari was great, but it was so nice to see real sandy beaches!

The village has many interesting things to see and do, and there are so many options for dining and shopping. This was one of our favorite parts of our trip.

Iconic Scenery

Cefalu made me feel like a pixel moving in a photo-shopped picture published in a travel magazine.
It's so spectacular!
Historical buildings lined up on the shoreline, reflected in the turquoise sea, the majestic Duomo, popping out in the background and the massive cliff La Rocca,dominating the entire landscape.
When I've seen pictures from Cefalu on various travel sites, I said they're probably edited in Photoshop. Well, they're not. Not much, anyway.
Visiting a stunning cathedral, drinking lovely wine, swimming in crystal turquoise water, sunbathing on a sandy beach - everything in the same day! That's Cefalu coast!

Ticks all the boxes
Aug 2020 • Family
Having visited Palermo, Trapani, Agrigento, Ortigia and Taormina, I have to say our last stop at Cefalu ultimately had it all. Lovely clean beach, clear water with few waves (ideal for little kids), charming streets and nice restaurants. Every other place excelled in one way or another, but Cefalu ticked all the boxes. Ideal even for a long weekend.

Love Cefalu!!
Jan 2020
Cefalu was one of our favorite towns that we visited during our 2+ weeks in Sicily. There is such a relaxed, enjoyable atmosphere in the town that just calms you down and places you in a different state of mind. We wandered along the beach for hours searching for beach glass, strolled through the back streets of the charming town and just thoroughly enjoyed our visit. A truly lovely town and area of Sicily

Cefalù coast is so beautiful and it looks like a post card. Everything is around is so peaceful and you just want to take everything in.

picturesque

The old town was good but dead in December. Glad we came, and a good place to walk. Overall we were a bit underwhelmed as we were expecting more.

Picturesque even in Winter

Beautiful coastal town I imagine it would be very busy in summer. Old town was interesting to walk through and appreciate how it’d worked in traditional times.
