We were recommended to go there but we were really disappointed. The position did not favour air circulation and it seemed to be in a pizza oven... Not pleasant. We also had the sensation to be quite under an unsolicited marketing pressure: we were on...More

A family owned Restaurant and beach bar. The best place ever in Taormina. A heartfelt thanks to the Sparta family who run this place like machines. Great great destination and true authentic Italian food. Every dish is absolutely amazing.

We've been in Taormina a few days. All the restaurants we ate at were good, great even. However all we wanted was a simple grilled fish and salad. We went down the funivia to the beach, Lido La Pigna, where we went on an excursion...More

It's in Taormina, but by the beach. Easy, 5 minute ride on the funivia (3 euros one way) or the bus.

There is not a public pool. We just stayed at the Sea Palace and the pool is not open to the public. Neither is the st Andreas but the sea is shallow and lovely!

Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay. Don't miss the "Lido La Pigna Experience"... a deep dive in the Sicilian Heritage.
