ISOLA BELLA

Isola Bella is a small island at the center of a beautiful bay designed by Capo Sant’Andrea and Capo Taormina. Also known as The Pearl of the Ionian Sea, it is located near Taormina, Sicily, southern Italy, within a small bay on the Ionian Sea. It was a private property until 1990, when it was bought by the Region of Sicily, turned into a nature reserve, administrated by the Italian branch of the World Wide Fund for Nature. There is a narrow path that often connects the island to the mainland beach. The island has a small and rather rocky beach which is a popular destination for sunbathers. Morphologically, the island covers about 8000 square meters and reaches a conical shape with a maximum height of 33 m above sea level, inserted in the scenarios of the coast and the hills of Taormina.

History: King Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies gifted the island to the nearby town of Taormina in 1806. The island was then bought from the town by a Ms. Trevelyan, who built a small house facing the sea and imported exotic plants, which thrived in the Mediterranean climate. Subsequent owners kept up the island, until the owner went bankrupt, and auctioned the island in 1990. The island had been noted by conservationists as early as 1983, and it was quickly obtained by the Region and designated as a protected natural site. The island is home to several species of birds, and a few types of lizards.
