Cefalu & Mondello for a beach break begining of August?

Just wanted some advice on my plan to visit Sicily this summer!

The priority is relaxation and easy to access as we are not driving, great beach, food & nice walks.

Aug 2-7th.

I decided to fly into Palermo on Thursday and spend time in Mondello until Saturday, then go to Cefalu till Tuesday, the straight from Cefalo to Palermo airport back.

Would you advise going to Cefalu first, and then spend Monday - Tue in Mondello as it might not be as busy vs Thursday & FRI?

Or can you suggest other destinations to explore ?

It depends what you like really.

I like lively busy beaches and people watching so I'd rather be in Mondello at the weekend.

Another popular beach is San Vito Lo Capo, west of Palermo: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g656…

Thanks for quick reply!

Do you think that I should consider San Vito Lo Capo instead of Cefalu?

I have been reading that Cefalu might be better for those who don't drive also, more options for good restaurants and city walks. ....but I haven't been to any of them :(

Yes I agree, I would prefer Cefalu, it's a bigger town with sightseeing to do as well.

I was just offering another option nearby: San Vito Lo Capo beach has got that Caribbean beautiful water, but I have been there in April so perhaps is not that clean in the summer.

Hi Corina C ,

Expect all beaches crowded in August, weekends and weekdays. August is our holiday month.

Cefalù is a tow and beach resort. San Vito Lo Capo is a seasonal beach resort. For what you'd like consdier Cefalù.
