Isola Bella, Taormina

3.8
#1 of 6 in Nature in Province of Messina
Island Nature / Park
Once a private property, Isola Bella has been turned into a public nature preserve. Try to spot the several species of birds and lizards on this small island. Relax on the rocky beach or at the bar. The natural beauty of this spot has earned it the nickname "the pearl in the Ionian Sea." Bring shoes to wear on the beach; the stones can be uncomfortable to walk on. Our Taormina tour planner makes visiting Isola Bella and other Taormina attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A lovely little bay to get away from the busy town of Taormina - very relaxing and quiet. Can recommend the snorkling and visiting the actual island.  more »
  • Parking €10 day at best. 1 umbrella and 2 deckchairs for €40 day. Crowded and noisy. The sea is good but with rocks. Not worth to make a picture. Beach public cramped. Stay away.

Where to stay in Taormina

Perched on the side of a mountain, Taormina offers lodging options that range from family-run guesthouses and traditional B&Bs, to luxury hotels and private seaside villas. Staying close to the city center allows you to enjoy a broad selection of excellent restaurants and cafes, where you can experience the flavors of Sicily's local cuisine. To avoid the overcrowding of Taormina's central areas, which are packed with tourists all year long, venture deeper inland and consider staying at a quiet cottage or cozy private inn.
