Cefalu Beach (Cefalù)
Cefalù beach is a long golden stretch of sand which follows the gentle curve of the bay and culminates in the medieval old town with its towering 12th-century cathedral. Whilst the beach here is no secret and it does get busy in the summer months, compared to resort towns such as Taormina it has not been over-developed and retains plenty of charm. Backed by a tree lined promenade with plenty of cafes to choose from, the beach itself has no shortage of facilities including showers, sun loungers and the likes.
What makes Cefalù beach stand out though is the old town that spills down right onto the beach. This place oozes history and charm with its narrow streets and little squares. For the best views of the beach and town head up to the summit of La Rocca (the rock), a massive promontory which overlooks Cefalù from a height of nearly 300 metres (1000ft).
