Sicily’s “Beautiful Island”

Isola Bella, or “Beautiful Island”, is not actually an island but rather a rocky outcrop at the far end of Lido Mazzarò connected to Sicily’s mainland by a narrow strip of sand that disappears beneath the waves at high tide. One of the most picturesque points along the coastline, Isola Bella was gifted to Taormina in 1806 by the King of Sicily and has been a nature reserve since 1990.
