Once a private property, Isola Bella has been turned into a public nature preserve. Try to spot the several species of birds and lizards on this small island. Relax on the rocky beach or at the bar. The natural beauty of this spot has earned it the nickname "the pearl in the Ionian Sea." Bring shoes to wear on the beach; the stones can be uncomfortable to walk on. For Isola Bella and beyond, use our Taormina trip builder site to get the most from your Taormina vacation.
