Taormina dream, sea and timeless beaches
It is not just a place, Taormina is landscape, art and poetry. A solar image of ancient Sicily. Sea and high peaks on turquoise waves. Sun, blue sky and the remote Etna, mighty and often snowy. Between lobsters, oranges and Indian figs. Taormina is a dream to dive, a spring in relax even in the summer that moves to the pace of warm but green nature, breathtaking scenery and the savoir-faire of an entire world of elegance. Domains of Arabs, Normans, Phoenicians, Angion, Aragon and Bourbons have evolved over the centuries, leaving visual traces in baroque profiles and in the historic culture of alleyways between palaces, churches and fountains.
But also sea and relax on the beach. Where can you go to the sea in Taormina in your summer 2017?
The top is Isola Bella. Nature reserve since 1998, the spectacle to admire lying on a sunbed with drink and drink in hand is simply wonderful: a small flap of clear water – to envy the Caribbean. The island is reachable on foot in a stroll through the waters when there is low tide and the lido, gravel and pebbles, is divided between a structure equipped with umbrellas and sun loungers and free beach. The whole coast is however blessed by clear sea, a true paradise for snorkeling and diving lovers. Enchanting the beach of Mazzarò in a picturesque creek where you can take off on small boats in suggestive hiking excursions – including the well-known cave of Alcantara.
Sicilian specialties to taste in Taormina: arancine (of course), caponata, The stewed salad and the messinese octopus !
Capri, poetry and relax
(…) Capri- reina de roca-
en tu vestido
de color amaranto y azucena
la dicha y el dolor- la vina llena
de radiantes racimos
que conquisté en la tierra. (…)
Passed by the magic of Capri, Pablo Neruda wrote one of his finest poems: Chioma di Capri. The images and emotions of so many inspirations are understandable. Capri is pure poetry.
The island of Capri is a small paradise for almost an hour of hydrofoil from Naples, in the southern part of the Gulf. Exclusive tourist destination for travelers from all corners of the world who fled for a sea holiday, tarallucci and wine between dream, color, luscious perfumes and holiday rhythms in Bella Italia.
Sea, sea and still sea between the beaches of Capri. The pebble beach of Marina Grande, the largest of the island between rocky terraces, clear sandy areas with gravel, turquoise sea and well-equipped facilities. There is also a free beach next to the hydrofoil ticket offices, but it is often very crowded. At the foot of Mount Solaro, in a paradise cave you can access one of the most exclusive seaside resorts of Capri, Marina Piccola. Blue waters, sun and great landscapes for an unforgettable selfie. Two free beaches wind up around the legendary Siren’s Rock, but also establishments, seafood restaurants and various venues. A swim between the Faraglioni of Capri is just what you want to forget about work or school for a few days.
And then a tour of the elegant boutiques of Corso Vittorio Emanuele and via Camerelle – a visit to “Canfora”, a prestigious caprese sandals shop that includes among its historical customer style icons from Brigitte Bardot to Jackie Kennedy.
What should you eat in Capri during this summer 2017? A Scented Neapolitan pizza. Seafood salad, spaghetti with Nerano zucchini and cheese, and of course Neapolitan pastiera.

Glamor that begins with the name, ‘the land of those who are free‘. Thailand is one of the most sought after destinations for your summer 2017.

Where should you go in Thailandia? Phuket. The southern Pearl. Connected to the mainland from the Sarasin Bridge is a lush nature and hills, forests and lonely beaches.

And then Phang-Nga Bay: Exquisite mangrove forests, mysterious sea caves and lively fishing villages. If you want to enjoy an exclusive holiday, enjoy a relaxing moment in a golden beach surrounded by rocky walls.
For a Hollywood experience, there is the island of Ko Phing Kan, set of the legendary “The Man With the Golden Gun”, 1977 saga of the 007 film with Roger Moore in the role of James Bond. And why not give in to the temptation of an island of pleasure? Poetry behind the power of nature in a theater of green, turquoise and wild white sandy whites. The wind between the shadowy shadow of the palm trees in the sun. Phi-Phi Leh is an impregnable fortress that opens onto a deep bay. One of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Ao Maya. Entering the legend thanks to Leonardo di Caprio’s “The Beach” .
P.S. Taste everything, Thai cuisine is something unique. From fruit salads to prawns to lemon juice and to coconut milk beef. The top.
