The Beach Guide

Isola Bella Beach

Also known as the “Pearl of the Ionian Sea”, Isola Bella is a tiny island in a protected bay on Sicily’s west coast. With crystal clear azul waters and a backdrop of mountains and pine forests this is a truly beautiful spot.

The beach here is a pair of coarse, stony sand crescents either side of the island which meet to form a narrow spit of beach connecting Isola Bella to the main land. As well as soaking up the sun there’s plenty to do here; the snorkelling is great and the little island itself is well worth exploring. There is a small house on the island and a series of paths and grottoes set amongst the pines. Since 1990 it has been a nature reserve and is home to several species of birds and lizards.

There is a little cafe overlooking the beach which is a great spot to sit back and enjoy the view. In the summer months it does tend to get a little busy here so my advice would be to find a spot with a nice view over the beach and relax…
