Campofelice di Roccella


Shawn and I are on the hunt for the best beach to frequent thDSC04397is summer.  Cefalu where we went for primo Maggio is about 35 minutes away, so we decided to look for something a little closer.  We found a rock and sand beach at Campofelice di Roccella.  It was not very crowded and we found castle ruins and 2 WWII bunkers.  The castle has a tower remaining and a lot of wall sections left.  We opted not to climb to the top of the tower because it was so hot.  We walked back through some villas, including the villa that was attached to one of the bunkers.  There was a stairwell and tunnel that went down into the bunker DSC04425from the house. It was an interesting afternoon and we came home a little sunburned, but we definitely enjoyed exploring new places. The pictures include: the villa and bunker, tower and ruins jutting out into the sea, aqueduct, and looking down the beach at the mountain near Termini.
