Beach description

The beach season at the resort begins in mid-May and ends in September. The hottest time of the year is in August. But thanks to the sea breeze, the heat is easily tolerated. The sea warms up to +27 degrees Celsius, and air temperature goes up to +30 degrees Celsius. On the pebble beach you can stay for free. In some places, pebbles are large, so it is worth stocking up with special shoes so as not to get hurt.

For families with children, it is better to choose a paid sandy beach – Lido di Naxos. The coast is clean, there is neither algae nor garbage. The entrance to the sea is gentle, there are neither sea urchins nor jellyfish. Special playgrounds are equipped for children to play, but there are no buoys, so swimming is not recommended. Merchants walk along the coast, selling drinks, food and souvenirs.

There are strong waves on pebble beaches , the depth increases almost immediately when you enter the sea. Therefore, here you can meet young people who cut waves on the board or plunge into the seabed. If desired, you can take a boat trip or go fishing.

To diversify the measured beach vacation, you can visit the archaeological park or go to the Taormina amphitheater.
