Went to Isolate Bella beach while on a recent visit to Taormina. Got the cable car from the town down to the beach area. Walked to the Isola Bella beach down a lot of steps which brings you to a few cafes and bar areas...More

Little beach and island with lots of restaurants and bars. Good for a walk and for lying in the sun and relax.

If you are near Taormina, this island is a must see! The views are stunning and it is a fun experience to walk over to the old castle.

It is not better than any beach in Taormina. It is very ordinary. Doesn’t have anything special. The beach is very rocky and stones are sharp

Expect to be packed liked sardines from 10am in peak season. Bathers strewn all over the place. Literally tiptoeing around the overcrowded strip of pebbles. Boat tours haggling at you. It's not quiet and not relaxing.

It has been bella, but not any more. Allmost nothing to see. Needs taking care and updating. No entrance up to top. Paikan ylläpito on unohtunut ja kaikki vähän rempallaan. Ei mitään ihmeempää nähtävää muuta kuin maisemat poispäin saaresta. Ylös ei päässyt. Saari on ollut...More

Cable car down from Taormina. Idyllic spot and good boat trips. Walk across the isthmus and wander round the island.
