We did not have the opportunity to swim, but the beach looking very inviting. It is protected by a city wall that you can climb upon for a view. It is a short walk from the Piazzo del Duomo.

I loved this beach. One of my favorite things is swim amongst history and this is a perfect place to do that. Steps away is the Medieval cathedral or the Medieval Lavatolo

Very pleasant, sandy beach in Cefalu. It was not crowded in late May and there were several people in the water. It is protected by a large city wall, breakwater and there are public (pay) toilets. A nice diversion from shopping.

Clear water, gorgeous landscape. Expensive to rent sun beds though. But you could bring your own and stay on the free side
