4 Taormina Hotels for Gay travellers

Taormina: The First Gay Resort in Sicily!

Taormina, a hilltop town on the east coast of the island Sicily in Italy, is a beautiful holiday destination ideal for single gay travelers and couples looking for relaxing and rejuvenating getaways! Taormina's reputation has been greatly increased since the 19th century, attracting more and more tourists every year, a large number of which being from the LGBT community. Taormina is also next to other gay popular cities and towns in Sicily such as Catania, Syracuse, Agrigento, and Etna.

Gay life in Taormina is still under development. Even though there are not many gay bars or clubs in the town, most of the local business are gay-friendly, thus attracting mixed gay and straight crowds. There is a new gay-friendly place in Taormina called Shatulle, a gay bar surrounded by homoerotic paintings. This area and bar is frequented by both tourists and locals, so it's a great way to meet new people. In general, the town is very friendly and homophobic behavior is very rare.

Gay couples love to visit Taormina because of the friendly and inclusive atmosphere from the locals, but that's not all. The town is notorious for its natural and historic beauty. Walking through the streets with your one and only is enough to reinforce the connection between two interconnected souls. Admire the medieval styled architecture along the shopping streets of Corso Umberto, or the elegant gardens, picturesque fishing villages, and clear lake waters at Isola Bella, a small island near the coast. 

There are not any gay beaches nearby the town, however, Taormina has three main beaches, called Isola Bella, Mazzaro and Giardini Naxos. Isola Beach is the most beautiful of the three, and it's located at the foot of the town. Due to the lack of gay hotspots in beaches and nightlife, it is much easier to meet guys online with apps like Grindr.
