Travel Tips for Cefalú
Nice sea, but just a few beaches
The Northern border of Sicily is not very good for beaches, most of them are made by gravels, so they are not very comfortable to lie over. A few exceptions in Cefalu, San Vito lo Capo and maybe a few other places. Anyway, the waters are perfect, provided you accept to made without the sand.
Cefalu by (Volcanic Ash) Accident
"A welcome extension to our Sicily trip"
Spending four days in Cefalu was an unexpected but delightful end to our Sicilian adventure in April. Unable to travel home because of the Volcanic Ash problem, we chose to move on to Cefalu for the extra days. After Castellammare del Golfo and Trapani, Cefalu came as a bit of a shock. Obviously, this is a town totally dedicated to tourists and even in April it was quite busy. But despite the souvenir shops and tourist menus, it's still a beautiful and interesting place, with an impressive cathedral and lovely Old Town. The soft, sandy beach is another good reason for spending some time here and the sunsets are spectacular. If you're on the North coast of Sicily, Cefalu is well worth a visit.
"The town and the Rock..."
Cefalu is the place where we stayed the second week of our Sicily trip. It is an excellent base from which to explore the northern coast between Messina and Palermo, even Trapani.
The town sits at the foot of a rock ("la Rocca"), towering 278m high above Cefalu, just waiting to be climbed.
Cefalu is trying to catch up with Taormina of becoming Sicily's most popular resort town. You will find a good preserved town centre with medieval streets, cosy restaurants and historic sights.
