Program of the sunset boat tour in Taormina:

  • Meet 10 minutes before departure at the dock in Via Calcide Eubea, 1 – Giardini Naxos, Messina at Kristal Boat. Here you will meet the crew and board a comfortable and spacious boat.
  • The tour starts by leaving the port and sailing along the Bay of Naxos heading towards Taormina Cape.
  • The first stop is the Blue Grotto of Taormina. This notorious cave is located in the bay of Taormina’s Isola Bella Marine Park, in a rocky wall about 15 meters high. It is so called because it has a bright blue color, due to the effect of the sun rays refracted by the sea, illuminating it and giving it this characteristic that makes it unique among all.
  • The tour continues towards the famous Isola Bella, a large and picturesque rock in the middle of a horseshoe-shaped bay where high white cliffs drop into the blue waters of the Mediterranean. With its lush vegetation and distinctive flora, it is one of the most iconic places in all of Sicily. While swimming at Isola Bella, discover the beauty of the seafloor that surrounds the island.
  • Sip a refreshing Prosecco and enjoy your aperitif with a typical Sicilian rotisserie.
