The Oriented Nature Reserve of Isola Bella
Taormina is a unique city. It is located on top of a mountain, but just two hundred meters down there is the sea. You can reach it with a spectacular cable car. La plage resort is located right in this deep blue sea coast overlooking Oriented Nature Reserve of Isola Bella.
As the matter of fact Isola Bella is a rock connected to the beach by a short and thin stretch of sand mixed with stones. Whether there is low or high tide you can safely walk, the difference lies only in the level of water, which can reach up to your knees. Once you get to the island you will officially enter Oriented Nature Reserve of Isola Bella. La Place Resort is a modern hotel designed to be completely blended with the pine forest that surrounds the centuries-old hotel.
