The Mediterranean-style Hotel Caparena provides a comfortable and stylish base for guests who prefer to stay by the beach while still being able to access Taormina via the hotel's complimentary minibus service.

The Hotel Caparena takes its name from Capo della Rena, the sandy cape that borders the Ionian Sea, and is positioned two and a half miles from the historical centre of Taormina. Immersed in a sub-tropical garden are an outdoor/indoor swimming pool and children's pool surrounded by a sunbathing terrace, ideal for spending those long summer days relaxing and reading. In addition, a range of regional and international dishes is available at the restaurant.

For those seeking that something extra, head into the hotel’s Caparena Wellness Club, where you can indulge yourself with the various relaxing treatments and therapies, including the exclusive Citrus Fruit therapy, inspired by the local scents of Sicilian oranges. An underpass is used to reach the private beach (separated from the hotel by a railway line), where a beachside bar serves drinks and snacks.

A haven positioned just outside one of Sicily’s most popular resorts, the Hotel Caparena is a sister hotel of the Villa Diodoro, enjoying the same high standard of quality.

The hotel has 85 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum 7 nights stay during August.

About the location

Holidays in Taormina marry history and culture to form an unforgettable experience in Italy. It’s perched at the top of Monte Tauro in the foothills of Mount Etna on Sicily’s Eastern coastline, between the cities of Catania and Messina. This ancient town offers visitors a view into the past with a number of elegantly preserved historic treasures, from the grand Greek-Roman Theatre to the equally impressive Palazzo Corvaja, which are just waiting to be discovered.

You don’t have to be a history buff to make the most of everything Taormina has to offer. Alongside the historical sights there are plenty of other attractions to take in. The main street, Corso Umberto, is traffic free and home to an array of shops and restaurants to rival any in the bigger cities.

There are also plenty of seaside activities to dive into thanks to the town’s coastal setting. Adventurous travellers can try watersports like wind surfing and snorkelling, while relaxing scenic boat tours around the gorgeous capes and grottos of the Ionian Sea allow you to explore at your own pace. Alternatively, simply spend long tranquil days on sun soaked shingle beaches.
