Taormina

ISOLA BELLA, THE PEARL OF MEDITERRANEAN SEA

written by Dave Mitchell

Ostuni città bianca

Taormina is known in the world for its architectural beauty, its beautiful mediterranean sea and its flourishing nature. Taormina’s picturesque historical centre on Tauro Mountain, with its high position above the Ionio sea, offers its visitors a breathtaking and unforgettable view: from Taormina you can see in fact both the beautiful Giardini di Naxos bay and the towering Etna volcano.

At the bottom of the city is located the beautiful Isola Bella, which attracts tourists and sea lovers from all over the world with its clean water. Isola Bella recently became a natural reserve, and it is with no doubt the most famous beach of Taormina area, repaired by the bay and by the mountain of Taormina. What a lovely natural paradise it is! I went to Isola Bella beach with a friend of mine, and we spent an entire day in the sun surrounded by the people of Taormina and other tourists having a lot of fun.

We reached Isola Bella in early morning, the perfect hour if you do not want to find the beach too crowded especially in July and August! From Taormina city, we took the cableway that takes you directly to Taormina Sea starting from via Luigi Pirandello, just a few minutes walking from Porta Messina. If you visit Taormina, be sure not to miss this natural paradise unique in the Ionian coast and in all the Mediterranean sea.
