Description: Lido La Pigna is easily connected to Taormina town center via cable-car. The attending staff will be glad to host you in the spacious terraces serving first quality Sicilian food products in a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The fully equipped beach area is a must to get the perfect tan and swim in the peerless ledge of the historic Mazzarò Bay. Don't miss the "Lido La Pigna Experience"... a deep dive in the Sicilian Heritage.

My husband and I had a lovely time at the beach here starting with a complementary pick up from our hotel, so the service was top notch from the very beginning . We were given lovely beds right on the front. Yes you have to pay for them approx €7 but that is good value considering it is more than 4 x that in the south of france! We also took a boat trip and the staff at La Pigna called in the boat and carried our bags for us. We loved the little boat trip , we had it to ourselves,with romantic Italian music being played for us. They stopped to let us snorkel and had snorkels onboard for us to use. We also and some commentary which made it even more interesting. It really was very romantic and I would highly recommend it if you need a break from sunbathing. We later ate pizza for lunch which were awesome and we got a complimentary return trip to our hotel. You could not ask for more . Note the beaches are shingle and they do have masseurs , which is not an issue for me as I like nothing more than a massage listening to the sounds of the sea and the sun on my face plus they are excellent and half the price of any hotel .

We had planned a day at the beach and chosen to use Lido La Pigna.
The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Our choice for lunch was pizza, salad and white wine and it was delicious!

Ate here in 2007 and had a superb meal one midweek lunchtime just as the season opened, with an excellent mixed fish grill. Sadly this recent visit was a huge let down, poor service, tasteless mixed fish grill and over priced. Would not recommend it for anything other than a quick pizza.

Very friendly staff, very tasty food (especially spagetti con vongole) and very comfortable sunbeds with coverings for head and shoulders! Excursions to grotta azura, crystal water and a lot of fish near the beach (we have even seen an octopus!). Just for information: neighbour beach is the beach of the Leading Hotel (lhw.com) - such hotels will never be at a bad place. You need to visit Lido la Pigna only once and you'll never change it for something else.

Visited Lido La Pigna twice for lunch and found it very relaxing with a lovely view of Mazarro Beach below. We just had tuna salads and a half litre of the white wine which was pleasant enough. Good range on the menu from full mains to snacks. With deck chairs, umbrellas, changing rooms and showers below it would be a nice way to while away the day with lunch here. There are boat trips around Isola Bella and to the Grotta Azzurra, but as they were quoting 20 euros each we thought it was a bit steep for a 45 mins trip. And that was with discount I think the original price was 25 euros. But we definitely enjoyed our lunches at Lido La Pigna.
