Isola Bella, also known as the pearl of the Ionian Sea, the literal meaning of which is ‘beautiful island’, is located just off Taormina in the east of the island and is just a small nature reserve. The Isola Bella beach was bought by the gardener and pioneering conservationist Florence Trevelyan in the 19th century and was maintained as private property but now it is a preserved area where you can enjoy the scenery and sunbathe at the same time.
The beach of soft pale sand and turquoise sea is located close to Palermo. A beach is an ideal place for a family gateway. The place is full of tourists and locals during the summer season, however, the major portion of the beach is a privately owned one but some portion is also available for the public. The place helps you to witness white sands backed by lush green vegetation. The place also has some great restaurants.
Cefalu is an ideal beach to wander around with its long sandy coast and pretty town on the Tyrrhenian coast and roams in the narrow streets to have some leisure time, especially with your family as the place is really safe. The place is ideal for swimming and soaking up in the sun and can be busy during the Italian school summer holidays so try to choose another period of the year to have a peaceful experience of the place.
Balestrate is located in western Sicily in the province of Palermo. The sand here is very fine and the clear sea is ideal for cooling off during the hot summer days. The place is full of umbrellas and parasols in summer giving a perfectly summery vibe. Also, try seafood offered by the local restaurants along with clubs and discos.
