It’s time to spend a beautiful day in the Sicilian sun enjoying the hospitality of Taormina Beach Clubs! Indeed, it is ideal to spend a pleasant day with sun, sea, relaxation and great food. I love to go to the beach and grab a sunbed and umbrella. It is swim, sun, tan and repeat! Of course, there is a delicious lunch break in between all this fun. All the lidos have delicious restaurants.
Take into consideration that these lido’s fill up fast. Therefore, make sure you reserve in advance or make reservations through your hotel for beds and umbrellas. Consequently, if you don’t have reservations, make sure you arrive early (11am). If not, your spot will be in the back row – if you get one at all!
Getting to Taormina Beach Clubs
The Funivia (cable car) is great way to get to the beach area (Taormina Mare). It is located a short five-minute walk from the east end of Corso Umberto. In my opinion, it is an exhilarating and fun ride down the mountain that only takes a few minutes! The cost is 3-euro one way or 6-euro roundtrip.
Once you arrive to Taromina Mare by funivia (or by car) there are several Taormina beach clubs directly across the street, just steps away. Furthermore, this includes the free public beach of Isola Bella, which is spectacular.
La Plage is a beautiful hotel resort, in fact, it is my favorite, when it comes to breath-taking scenery and ambiance. Keep in mind, it’s lido is not open to the public. However, you are able to make reservations in advance to rent lounges and umbrellas. It has a great vibe, music and it’s also very attractive. In addition, you can also use the lounge area and enjoy delicious cocktails and food. The Beach Club of the La Plage Resort has sunbeds, beach umbrellas, a bar kiosk, and an inviting gazebo where you can enjoy a massage while embraced by the sea breeze. The Beach Club of the Plage Resort is open from April to October.
Price – summer 2022: EUR 75 for 2 beds, 2 towels and one umbrella
From dawn to dusk Tao Beach Club offers fun and relaxation. The bar service offers refreshments, fresh meals and snacks for breaks between sunbathing and swimming, as well as lunch to be enjoyed on the terraces. Tao Beach Club represents one of the most exclusive corners of Taormina with its private sandy beach, the emerald coloured Ionian Sea and finally the Sicilian sun .
It seems that this is the spot to do many things! We got a boat here that took us on a beautiful excursion to the Blue Grotto and all of Isola Bella.
