Human settlement in Sicily, Italy. The elegant Mazzarò area, accessed by cable car or steep walkways, is known for its pebbly beach. Just offshore, the rocky Isola Bella is an islet nature reserve covered in Mediterranean shrub. Snorkeling and diving are popular activities, and boats offer trips to the Grotta Azzurra sea cave. Pizzerias and seafood restaurants serve meals al fresco, while hotel lounge bars and clubs offer coastal views.

Mazzarò beach is a pebble bech located in a beautiful and enchanting inlet. The water is immediately deep. From here you can take boat trips to explore the caves like the famous Grotta Azzurra.

Mazzarò beach has always been among the most sought after beaches of Taormina and also the most elegant. Also, right across the beach, there is the cable car station that connects easily the center of Taormina to the beaches area.

In the summer season you can rent umbrellas and sunchairs on the lidos of the Mazzarò bay. The historic center of Taormina, with the Greek theater, the elegant Corso Umberto, and the enchanting view of the bay of Giardini Naxos every year, attracts millions of tourists from all over the world. Mazzarò bay, with luxury hotels and seaside restaurants, is just a few miles away from Taormina city center.

Mazzarò beach is made up of pebbles. The sea is crystal clear, with shades ranging from turquoise to emerald. The seabed bordering the bay of the Isola Bella marine park and the blue cave are ideal for snorkeling and enjoying a Kayak excursion. To access Mazzarò beach, you have to go down a staircase with two entrances, one close to the parking lot of the Taormina cable car and the other not far from the main road.

The bay is mainly occupied by beaches clubs; the only small patch of free beach is on the bay's south side. The best way to visit the bay of Mazzarò and the rest of Taormina Marine reserve is with a boat tour departing from Giardini Naxos, which costs only € 20 and includes fruit and drinks. There are three beach clubs on the Mazzarò beach. Still, leaving aside the one in Villa Sant'andrea, which is for the use of the hotel guests, there remain the Lido La Pigna and Il Delfino beach. The average price for two sunbeds and an umbrella is € 35/40, while the restaurants have menus from sandwiches to raw fish.
