We spend our last day and night in Mondello. The weather was rather windy but we strolled around the beach... The water was lovely actually. I believe there are a lot of people around in the summer time. Nice beach really close to Palermo.

It's one of my favourite beaches in Italy. The sand is great and the bay is really nice. The beach is not to wide, but after the season when the houses are gone, it's perfect for sunbathing.

Although the beach is nice, water is warm (26 degrees in september!), unfortunatelly is very far away from the city center. The buses are coming rare (i think i stayed 30 min) and probably because of this on the way back it was so crowded...More

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.

Beautiful transparent water. I have never seen such a beautiful water, but quite crowded/ commercial beach. There are laying chairs everywhere and you have to pay to enter to many parts of the beach. It is about 30 min bus ride from Palermo. It is...More

It was great to see all the Palermo families enjoying their beach huts (hundreds of them), but combined with the private areas they left very little public space on the beach, which was covered in cigarette butts. Best to go for a swim and then...More
