“Great little beach but....”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

We spent about one hour at Isola Bella before all of the crowds of people came and took over the beach. The only problem with this beach in late-May were the massive amounts of jellyfish close to the shore. It made swimming in the crystal clear water impossible.

Natural beauty as it's name! Isola bella - Beautiful island. We loved spending a say here. Walking to the island is possible, the water is at most knee high.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed 8 June 2012

A great "free beach" option, beautiful water, but quite crowded at times.

“what a beautiful view!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Seeing the view of Isola Bella from the top would take any body's breath away. It's so picturesque, so charmingly pretty, it's like a perfect cupcake, all angelic and sweet and so so attractive. It drwas you to walk down the steep road to it's beaches and wade through the shallow sand bar connecting the island to the sicily. The water is crystal clear, the blue is so inviting. A must see, must go, must swim place!!!
