  • A quiet retreat near Cefalù
  • A range of sporting activities available for guests

A stay at the Baia del Capitano would be an all-round relaxing experience for any guest. Located in the sun-filled bay of Mazzaforno, (approx. 4km from Cefalù's historical centre) it doesn’t take long to be fully immersed in the normalities of the local way of life, and with a private beach reachable by the hotel's complimentary shutte bus, it would only seem right to sink yourself into the sun-absorbed sand and order a refreshing beverage from the conveniently placed beach bar.

If guests prefer a quieter scene then they can recline by the pretty pool area, under the shade of the olive groves. In the evening, choose to dine in either the indoor or outdoor garden Kefale restaurant, where the chef will tantalise your palate with a menu full of traditional Mediterranean dishes.

There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained too, with a host of activities made available, including the free use of the Tennis courts and Table Tennis, as well as the hiring of bicycles, quad bikes and more unique experiences such as Scuba diving lessons and personal training sessions.

Guestrooms at the Baia del Capitano are split between two parts of the property, with some providing views to the lush gardens and others with the customary, but highly sought after outlook to the Mediterranean Sea. 


The hotel has 46 rooms (official rating 4 star). Minimum of 6 nights in high season (between end of July and August).

About the location

Holidays in Cefalù give you a microcosm of the best of Italy. Whatever attracts you to Sicily, or even the beautiful country itself, you’ll find it in this coastal town whose character greatly overcomes its modest size. Whether you’re looking for modern metropolitan culture, to explore absorbing historical heritage or simply to settle in for long sun drenched days on luxurious beaches living the true la dolce vita, Cefalù has it all.

Situated on Sicily’s Tyrrhenian coast a short way east of Palermo and in the shade of the large headland La Rocca, Cefalù holidays offer something for families, couples and adventurers. From the imposingly grand Cathedral to the ancient Roman Baths there is no shortage of sightseeing opportunities, while families with younger children will love the long golden sandy beach. Couples will adore a leisurely romantic stroll through the cobblestone streets or walk to the top of La Rocca to take in an idyllic sunset before heading back into town and dinner at one of Cefalù’s many fine restaurants.
