Caldura beach, about 5 km away from the Cefalu in Casa residence, it is a lovely pebble beach with an astonishing turquoise crystal-clear sea. This unspoilt beach is bordered by green trees and surrounded by tall, jagged, quaint cliffs.

Capo Playa beach, located about 6 km away from the Residence, with a 15 km coastline extending from Campofelice di Roccella to Salinelle. Almost completely free, Capo Playa is a very long sandy seacoast and it has numerous accesses to the sea along its entire length. This is very windy location, popular among surfers, and is caressed by a beautiful, clear blue sea. To get there, take the SS113 in the direction of Palermo, turn right into Via Capo Playa and, after passing a level crossing, turn left: there you are!

At about 10-15 km from Cefalu you will find the beaches of S.Ambrogio, Pollina and Tusa.

The beach of S. Ambrogio is easily reachable by driving the SS113 towards Messina and following the road signs. It is a very large sandy beach, extending out towards the beautiful, clear sea. It is ideal place if you need to relax as it is never crowded because it is lesser known than the others.

Pollina beach, with its fine sand and gravel, it is famous and loved for its amazing blue sea. A very charming location for your holiday in Cefalù. To get to Pollina you can drive the spectacular stretch along the SS113 in the direction of Messina, crossing the sea from above: the panorama is simply indescribable!

Least but not list, we recommend you the beaches of Tusa, the “Lampare” beach and the “Marina” beach, which in 2016 were awarded two “Blue Flags” by the Fee (Foundation for Environmental Education), an important recognition certifying the high quality of their maritime environment, the coasts nand the services. These enchanting beaches show colorful pebbles and beautiful seabeds making themthe  perfect places for snorkeling lovers.
