A tourist can never boast of ever visiting Cefalu if they have never seen the beautiful beaches of the town. For a better appreciation of the beach, one may decide to book accommodation at the beach for a minimum of two days. This is so because, during the day, activities at the beach are swimming and sandbathe, however, in the evening, recreational firms in the area organizes bonfire, live band for tourists and no tourist would want to miss out on that.
