Gaining in popularity as a new Italian resort is Cefalu, a quaint little village nestled between a rock and a beautiful beach, on the northern coast of Sicily with tons of Sicilian charm. It has been a lesser known favorite vacation spot for many Europeans. Gradually, Cefalu is becoming popular as a great place to spend a vacation.
The beach in Cefalu’ is worth a visit, and is one of the unique selling points of the town. With golden brown fine sand, it is one of the most sandy beaches in all of Sicily, and stretches from the older part near the historic center down to the newer Club Med. Walking along the “lungomare” you can find some lush and tropical vegetation. The vegetation is lush with citrus, including blood oranges, cactus figs, almond and olive trees and more. You can also visit the Temple of Diana, an ancient structure with Greek and Roman characteristics, which possibly dates back to 5th Century B.C., along with other remnants of a medieval fortress.
You can get to Cefalu’ from Palermo by Autostrada 20 which takes about 45 min to 1 hour drive. It is suggested that you hire a car to take you to this place and Car Rental Italy provides cars on hire to go around exploring the picturesque place of Italy and offers special economical packages especially for the tourists, who are visiting the place all through the year, irrespective of the season.
