Looked like it will be nice in a few weeks but it was closed when we went. Hard to access as not able to walk on the beach to the next beach because of rocks. Hilton beach next door. Looks like it would be good for snorkeling.

We've been to Lido Dal Pirata in 2014th and it was our little secret that we kept hiding from other tourists that were in our hotel. We wanted it just for us. This year it still was a hidden little gem of this part of the coast, the most beautiful beach around, the most peaceful place in a crowded Taormina/Naxos... More

For the lunch you have bistro/restaurant. In the restaurant you can have a meal from 10-20€ with a healthy portion :-) The beach is pebbly surrounded... More

This beach is well sheltered and great for snorkelling as there is an abundance of sea life in the bay that is sheltered by volcanic rock so is relitavely calm. Sun loungers were good value for money and cost 13 euro for the two of us all day. The staff were helpful and spoke good English and the food was... More

They want you to pay 5 Euros extra when you eat in the bar, they promised us the day before when we had lunch in the restaurant, no extra in the bar. They are lying, and the only thing they want is your money. Food does not taste anything. The youngest boy working there is cheeky and rude. Please avoid... More

This is a great place to get away from the crowds on Lungo Mare, though the lidos there are nice too. If you want to snorkel and relax and you can live without a sandy beach (not ideal for little ones) this is the lido for you. They offer 2 menus one casual and the other restaurant quality, they will... More

Really loved this place. The setting in a small secluded bay allows you to enjoy great views. The staff are very friendly. We ordered two seafood mains and they gave a small plate of free pasta to try. The prices are reasonable and portions and quality very good. Would eat here again.
