We loved walking parts of the beach, but it was too cold to swim in late November, despite warm temperatures of 20-22 celsius. The coastline is lovely.

Cefalu is really lovely and worth a day trip. Stroll around the streets, linger on the beach with a lovely granita or gelato and relax.

When we were there at Easter there were a couple of people on the beach, in front of the old town, with dogs. The dogs played on the beach and ran in and out of the water.
