Taormina shoreline

Even if Taormina is very crowded in August, there's still place at sea to paddle a kayak. The secret is to be not too late at the parking lot: it could be a big difference!
There is nothing to say, the coast of Taormina is a very special place, although a little 'overlooked and crowded during the summer. The current of the Strait of Messina here is greatly felt, especially at Capo Taormina and Capo Sant'Andrea and this offers a flicker of adrenaline even in the days of flat calm. Even rocks are pretty interesting since here you can find in few miles igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic outcrops.
Add to this the ice cream and the Sicilian granita and the kayak trip turns into something magical ...
