Isola Bella, Taormina

4.1
#1 of 10 in Parks in Taormina
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.

  • Beautiful nook, but a lot of people in the summer. Interesting use plastic or rubber footwear for walking on the beach, a lot of rocks and large. With low tide, it's a great ride to visit the island.

  • Highly touristic but still impressive! Pebbles on the beach
  • A very nice place to see.
  • Much of the island was closed off, no information about anything. Still looked beautiful
  • Charming little rocky beach with free access, calm and clean water.
  • Good landscape and unusual place. This is not a sand beach but a stones one. Water is amazingly transparent.
