Cefalu Coast, Cefalu

Neighborhood Tourist Spot
On the sea cliff La Rocca, you can still see the ruins of the ancient Greek settlers who were first captivated by Cefalu Coast. The hillside village is home to a long beach, hearty Sicilian cuisine, and many historic churches. The rocky peaks offer views of the Aeolian Islands. Visit the heart of the town to see a Norman cathedral with interlacing pointed arches supported by granite columns. The apse and choir bay are adorned with Byzantine mosaics. Take a walk along the cobblestone streets to find traditional Sicilian shops and delicious cooking. Cefalu Coast is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Cefalu Edition.

  • Long narrow Beach hugging Cefalù and then extends out of the country. Equipped with free beach and many spaces. Spectacular walk into the water below the village next to the Pier (old port) where the fresh water of the old wash House now only point of tourist attraction. Sandy Beach

  • The houses face the sea as well as several restaurants. The water is crystal clear and you can choose from either Beach rocks. There are several beaches with little room for public beaches always crowded but I would stay there again!

  • Dirty Beach--cigarette butts everywhere ... just gross. It would take some control and some fine to uncivilized.
