Make sure you get there early to nab a spot on the beach! The water is a beautiful blue and the mountains offer a gorgeous backdrop.

Cefalu has a Sicilian charm despite the vast numbers of tourists that flock here in summer. The rods into town can be very congested at peak times and we have had a better experience visiting late August or June. Watch out for the many festivals...More

We stayed on the Cefalu Sea Palace which is has its own stretch of breath opposite the hotel and it's own swimming pool. Just a short walk into the town.

There is a train that goes from Palermo to Cefalu. The ride was a little over and hour and the cost was around 15 euro. Definitely take the train, very easy and affordable!
