The bluest sea in Cefalù, Sicily


On my way back to the Strait of Messina I decided to have a stop in Cefalù. I put my swimwear on and enjoyed the day at the beach.

I am not a beach person, just 2 hours are enough for me, but I coulnd’t resist putting my feet in the mediterranean sea before such a blue water on such an incredibly sunny day that made everything shine so brightly that I never could took my sunglasses away, not even in the water.

Cefalù is nowadays a nice, human sized beach village but it was originally built by the Normans. That is why its marvellous Cathedral shows mosaics similar to those of Monreale and Palermo, also included in the Unesco world heritage. I spend few hours on the beach which unfortunately was very overcrowded for me, then I strolled in the village and captured some moments. There was a wedding in the Cathedral thus I couldn’t move around freely but I managed to take a picture of the mosaics, from a distance, then some nice inevitable ceramics and some great views of the houses built on the edges of the rocks, overlooking the sea…

It was a nice simple day at a beach that is framed by the nicest landscape you could imagine… Parking was so easy that I almost forgot I was in Sicily…
