An unforgettable walk along Cefalu’s promenade
To start your holiday in Cefalù, there is nothing better than a walk along the promenade, a very long beach of fine golden sand, on which it is a real pleasure to walk while admiring the characteristic historic houses overlooking the sea.
Let yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves and enjoy a day lying in the sun choosing from the many beaches that you will find along your walk: Lido Apollo, Lido Poseidon, Lido Peter Pan.
Their fine sand and clear, shallow water are perfect for those unable to swim and for families with children.
If during your stay on the beach you start to feel peckish, go to the GelAntico pastry shop: they will delight you with their homemade ice cream (with the gluten-free variant) and their fresh and delicious Sicilian granitas.
For the evening, the promenade offers several places to suit each taste. If you want to eat a delicious pizza with the Cefalù seafront as a backdrop, take a trip to the Il Ragno d’oro restaurant-pizzeria which offers tasty pizzas cooked in a wood oven.
For a dinner based on fish or local products, Tivitti is the right place. Here, alongside refined dishes such as grilled octopus tentacle with chickpea hummus and confit tomatoes, you can try the panelle and Sicilian cannoli.
For lovers of good wine, the Le Petit Tonneau wine shop is a must: excellent wines from all over Sicily and delicious local organic jams and marmalades.
If you don’t know how to give up music even on vacation, come to Maljk or Le Vele: start the evening with an aperitif or an apericena and end up on the dance floor dancing to some disco music.
Ma se siete alla ricerca di un luogo più tranquillo dove godervi qualche ora al mare in solitaria, basta allontanarvi un pò. Alcune spiagge situate a pochi chilometri da Cefalù faranno al caso vostro come la spiaggia di Mazzaforno, Capo Playa, la spiaggia dei Settefrati, località alle porte di Cefalù, ottime per gli amanti degli sport acquatici come lo snorkeling, grazie alla presenza di acque cristalline e il windsurf praticabile per i venti favorevoli della zona.
But if you are looking for a quieter place to enjoy a few hours alone by the sea, you only need to move over a few kilometers. Some beaches located not far from Cefalù such as the beach of Mazzaforno, Capo Playa or the beach of Settefrati will do it for you; they are excellent for water sports lovers who practice snorkeling – thanks to the presence of crystal clear waters – and windsurfing – due to the favorable winds in the area.
