Mondello Beach

Paradise in Palermo
Entering the bustling city of Palermo, you would never imagine that just a short local bus trip away is the beautiful Mondello Beach. Known as the spot for the 'in' crowd or potentially the 'out' crowd - if you include Burlesconi who apparently has a holiday house there, the sea is blue and the cliff face looks like something straight from the Amalfi Coast.

Rows of bright turquoise and red or white huts serve as dressing rooms for the locals who plant themselves on the beach or at one of the beach bars which line the road. Whilst you may not want to be here in peak season, it definitely is a worthwhile escape even just for an afternoon.
