Hotel Baia del Capitano

Sicily, Italy


Superior Garden View room

Lavatoio Medievale Fiume Cefalino




A charming hotel in Sicily with a private sandy beach - includes breakfast, optional dinner and extras for longer stays

Gorgeous seaside setting with private sandy beach and cliff access? Check. Relaxing pool surrounded by olive trees? Check. On-site restaurant serving delicious Mediterranean dishes? You bet. When it comes to authentic Sicilian charm, the beautiful four-star Baia del Capitano has it in spades.

If lying in the sunshine, taking a lazy dip in the pool and ordering the occasional sandwich sounds good, you’ve come to the right place. The glorious setting means relaxation pretty much takes care of itself, but there are plenty of extras to add to the experience, from a fitness centre and tennis court to beach towel and personal shopper services.

The hotel’s traditional Mediterranean design and fabulous setting make it the classic choice for a beach break, but the region is packed with culture and attractions for when you want a break from the sunshine. If you can drag yourself away from the hot tub and swimming pool (which comes complete with a beautifully convenient cocktail bar), take a stroll through the olive trees in the hotel garden or hop in your hire car and head to the nearby Norman city of Cefalù.

Good to know
The hotel has a large parking area protected from the sun. Keeping in touch is easy thanks to free Wi-Fi (and you can even rent an iPad for your visit)

The Hotel Baia del Capitano is located in the Bay of Mazzaforno, on Sicily’s beautiful northern coast. You don’t have to walk far to enjoy the naturally beautiful setting, thanks to the hotel’s private sandy beach and cliff access, but there is plenty to explore in the surrounding area.

Cefalù (around three miles away), is an appealing city with a well-preserved 11th-century cathedral, boutique-filled streets selling crafts and souvenirs, and a one-and-a-half-kilometre-long sandy beach making it the ideal day trip for culture fans and beach bunnies alike.
