This beach club is reasonably nice but the loungers are packed so closely together that you feel slightly like a sardine on a beach. The water was nice, though there was a bit of rubbish floating in it, and the beach is clean. Lunch there was not too expensive but pretty average at best!

What a surprise ! a day at the beach at the Lido la Pigna on the much softer semi sand than the harsh pebbles of neighbouring Isola Bella. The guys were great bringing drinks directly to the sunbed and the great surprise was the quality of the beachside restaurant food, probably the best Pizza I had in Taormina Wise to... More

My family spent a whole day here while me and the kids got in and out of the sea. The kids snorkeling and hubby and I reading. The staff were incredibly friendly and spoke good English, and sitting here buying regular food and drink was a great alternative to paying for sunbeds. This is the warmest sea we've ever known...

Nested on a scenic gulf at Mazarro, it has a less pebbly beach than elsewhere in Taormina. Water is clean and clear, so you can easily spot a nice variety of fish. Staff is highly effective, even if very relaxed. They cater for a large selection of beverages and local meals, at reasonable prices. We went there everyday for a... More

Loved this place and myself and my husband ate here 6 of the 7 days for lunch . The food and service was excellent and I really would have no complaints! And great views of beach while you enjoy lunch!

There are not so many beaches in or near Taormina, and La Pigna became our favourite place the second year in the row. It is a typical Italian stabilimento, only 2 minutes from the cable car that takes you down the hill from Taormina in less than 5 minutes. There also is a free shuttle bus from and to hotels...

We had a wonderful beach experience during our 8 days at the beach of Lido la Pigna! The team was very helpful and friendly. The beach is super nice, even though sometimes the waves are a bit wild - we thought it suited the sicilian temperament nicely. Special thanks to Thomas, Simone and Luigi! Grazie e a la prossima volta!

I highly recommend this place for a beach day in Taormina when you are tired of the crowds and outrageous prices at Isola Bella! The staff is very friendly, and they provide a lot of wonderful services, such as transportation to and from your hotel and beachside food and drink orders (delivered right to your lounge chair!). It is a... More

One of the best meals I had while I was in Sicily and we went to all the fancy spots but this was really one of the best, especially for lunch. Great view of the ocean and the people who work there are all so friendly as it is a family run restaurant. One of the best spaghetti vongole's I've... More

Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay. Don't miss the "Lido La Pigna Experience"... a deep dive in the Sicilian Heritage.
