Holidays in
Giardini Naxos

A charming Sicilian beach town

On Sicily’s east coast, just 5 kilometres from fashionable Taormina, the resort of Giardini Naxos hugs a sheltered arc of white sand in a turquoise bay. The silky-soft beach and interesting old town, filled with boutiques and antique shops, are both huge draws on Giardini Naxos holidays.

At the town’s marina, lined with cafés, seafood restaurants and pizzerias, colourful boats bob in the shimmering water. Everywhere you look, the scenery is jaw-dropping. Emerald-green forest, filled with pines and palms, fringes the town and coastline, and in the distance the magnificent Mount Etna – with its distinctive conical summit – is silhouetted against the sky. Holidays to Giardini Naxos are a good choice for those who want a low-key resort, compared to, say, the glitz of nearby Taormina. This charming resort, with its remarkable coastline and laid-back atmosphere, is an ideal choice for families and groups of friends looking to indulge in some serious downtime.

Your Giardini Naxos questions, answered

The Sicilian climate is one of Europe’s sunniest. It’s hottest in July and August, often still warm enough to swim in spring and autumn, and has mild, sunny winters.

It’s a great place to explore from. You can easily visit lively Taormina and the imposing volcano that is Mount Etna, or explore further along the Ionian Riviera.

Plenty of boat trips depart from Giardini Naxos’ harbour. Head to Taormina to wonder at its incredible ancient Greco-Roman theatre and enjoy fabulous coastal vistas.
