The Pearl of the Mediterranean

Isola Bella is an island that you can visit when the tide is low.  
The beach in front is crowded,if you want a sandier and less crowded beach, head just a bit further east towards Catania. 

Isola Bella is linked to the town of Taormina by a system of bays, and it is characterized by spontaneous vegetation mixed to numerous exotic plants. The island has various flights of steps, paths and small terraces.

The beach does not consist of sand but of pebbles.
