Even in post season, the beach is a lovely place to enjoy the sun and the sea. It is the main beach of Taormina and usually overcrowded in summer, but in the autumn - it is a perfect spot!

This is the beach of Taormina, and because of that it's always full and crowded, but truth be told, there are numerous far better beaches around, especially ones at Giardini Naxos.
