This doorway down to the beach was apparently one of four at one time. It is quite unremarkable and if it weren't in all the guide books, nobody would give it a second glance.

Friday afternoon's stroll after lunch took us here. Quick walk in the sand with my 2YO son to see the incoming tide reminded me of why this area is sought-after for the views.

Lovely scenery, both looking at Cefalu as looking the other way; to the sea. The two arches give a great decor for photo’s.

This is probably one of the main reasons tourists come and stay at Cefalu, to be able to enjoy the view and more than likely be part of the view too.

This makes a beautiful picture, but go early especially if your visiting on the weekends. The early light about 7-7:30 is perfect and there are not many people around. Late afternoons as the sun is setting is beautiful but along with hundreds of others who...More

The Porta Pescara archway makes a nice frame for some wonderfully photogenic shots of Cefalu town's beach, while from the beach itself, the old houses on the shore are reminiscent of Venice or Mykonos' "Little Venice" area. The town beach, although small, is welcoming, clean...More

Loved! Cefalu. Such a cute town. We didn't have time to go to the beach there but the water was beautiful, I wanted to jump right in. The local shops are great, such amazing local artists and vendors. Great for a day trip or weekend.
