Things to do
Located in Cefalu, Acqua Verde stands out from the numerous small aqua parks in Sicily as one that offers child-friendly games and lots of fun for all the family with its gentle water slides and shallow pools. While not the ideal place for teens or young adults, this is perhaps the ideal water park for families with small children.
The natural reserve of Cavagrande del Cassibile is a wonderful patch of land that has been dedicated to preserving the natural beauty of Sicily. The reserve is full of Mediterranean flora and fauna. Tourists can climb down into one of the numerous “Laghettis” (literally meaning little pools) for a cooling freshwater swim in the forest.
The Scala dei Turchi in Realmonte is a group of stunning rock formations lining the coast. After soaking up the beauty of your surroundings, you can take a dip in the sea or take it easy on the sandy shore.
Voglia di Mare is a popular water sports centre specialising in snorkelling and scuba diving as well as various child-friendly water sport activities. The company is large, offering its services on almost every busy family-friendly beach, and its name has become almost synonymous with safe and enjoyable water sports in Sicily.

Sicily is packed with outstanding bakeries and Pasticceria San Carlo is no exception. One of the most popular in the area, this bakery offers only a small selection of pastries, but every single one is deliciously perfect.
The Daiquiri Lounge is a popular cocktail bar in Taormina and arguably the bar with the widest variety of Daiquiris in Sicily. Specialising in delicious cocktails (unsurprisingly, especially Daiquiris), this lounge is considered as one of the best places to grab a drink in this part of Sicily.
The Lido di Naxos bar is the most popular beach bar in Giardini Naxos. The bar features hundreds of beach lounge chairs and is big enough to fit thousands of tourists as it spans a major part of Naxos’ beach and lido. The bar does not compromise on quality though, as it offers great cocktails and milkshakes considered the best in Naxos.
Bora Bora Bay is a large discotheque in Trapani and one of the best nightlife hubs to enjoy some good old Italodisco music in Sicily. The disco attracts tourists and locals who fancy getting re-stuck in a 80s time loop and relieving their heady disco days.
