Too bad the frequent passages of jetskis and others ... do not respect the boats at anchor. The beach games and the night club are of course not very pleasant, but a small lava flow of Etna at night and the view of Taormina offsets the inconvenience of summer. A secure anchorage that allows to leave the boat all day without stress. The bus every hour takes you to Taormina which is worth seeing.

Dommage que les fréquents passages de jetskis et autres ... n’aient pas le respect des bateaux au mouillage. Les jeux de plage et la boite de nuit ne sont bien sûr pas très plaisants, mais une petite coulée de lave de l’Etna la nuit et la vue sur Taormina compense ces désagréments de l’été. Un mouillage sécurisant qui permet de laisser le bateau toute une journée sans stress. Le bus toute les heures vous emmène à Taormina qui vaut le détour.

clear water, few funds with good behavior. music on the beach until 2/3 in the morning, possibility of disembarking on private pontoons for 10 €, see if agreement on the fishermen's wharf (very nice) otherwise on the beach.

eau claire, peu de fonds avec bonne tenue. musique sur la plage jusqu'à 2/3 heures du matin, possibilité de débarquer sur les pontons privés moyennant 10 €, voir si accord sur le quai des pêcheurs ( très sympa) sinon sur la plage.

Watch out for the underwater dike. Practical anchorage (restaurant, shops ...). Possibility to take the bus to access Taormina (port or national road). Of course the background noise of the village.

Attention à la digue sous-marine. Mouillage pratique (restaurant, commerces...). Possibilité de prendre le bus pour accéder à Taormina (port ou route nationale).Bien sûr bruit de fond du village.

Superbe mouillage sur fond de sable fin avec une très bonne tenue à l'abri de la grande digue. Quai pour débarquement à 100m. Centre ville immédiat, avec tous commodités.
