All beach have private fences. Fences begin from the edge of the sea. The ring left no space to sunbathe. All beach private area. People put towels in small corridors between private clubs. We love the sea.

Took a bus from Palermo to Mondello beach it did not disappoint - beautiful beach and clear water with rugged scenery behind. Well worth the trip

Very busy especially in summer months. By midday the beach was full. Plenty of food and bars about to keep yourself refreshed. Just a short(ish) bus from Palermo. Perfect for a beach day.
