A beautiful beach surrounded by rocks and clear blue waters. Many places to eat and drink. Can even take boat rides from here. Could sit here for hours at a time.

Mazzaro is the most beautiful beach in Sicily - the views are stunning, it's great for snorkelling, the restaurants are very good. A true gem!
