The coastline is appealing to everyones needs. Lovely beach, lovely old town with restaurants and shops, and scenic rocky shore. Great town to start a Sicilian holiday from Palermo airport...1 1/2 hour drive from airport.

Really nice beach, somewhat tourist town (but not too touristy). Lovely place to hang out. I would recommend this town to anyone who goes to Sicily. Views are amazing and there is a lot to do.

When we were there at Easter there were a couple of people on the beach, in front of the old town, with dogs. The dogs played on the beach and ran in and out of the water.

We stayed on the Cefalu Sea Palace which is has its own stretch of breath opposite the hotel and it's own swimming pool. Just a short walk into the town.
