Beach holidays to Sicily
Our first Italian beach destination takes us to the heel of Italy – otherwise known as the island of Sicily. The resort of Mortelle in the north east boasts a beach that is considered to be the best in the area. Used by locals from the nearby city of Messini to escape the city heat, there is a range of good sandy beaches throughout the island though. The area is ideal for people who want a quieter and less formal beach holiday.
For a far more sophisticated experience, Giardini-Naxos near Taormino is the place to go. The delightful sandy beach situated between Capo Taormina in the northwest and Capo Schisò in the south, is bordered by a range of excellent hotels, restaurants and tourist facilities. The medieval resort town of Taormino is a great place to catch a slice of authentic Italian life and study some interesting architecture, including the medieval quarter and the castle. The town also has excellent shopping and restaurant facilities.
