Frommer's calls this beach one of Sicily's best. But unfortunately, unless you're staying in one of the hotels that backs it, you're going to have to pay for your spot of sand in the sun. The fee is upward of about €8 EUR. While enjoying the sun and sand, be sure to ask one of the wandering vendors for a ciambelle, a delectable donut drenched in sugar, which are usually sold for only a euro or so.

One Virtual Tourist user says, "Everyone watches the sunset from little cafes along the beach or right in the sand -- but try to catch a sunrise also." After soaking in the rays by day, you should don your best resort wear and prepare for some partying. This strip of shoreline transforms into one of Sicily's hottest places for nightlife, with bumping clubs and bars.

To get to Mondello Lido from Palermo, you can ride bus no. 101 or 102 and then take another bus (no. 806) to reach the beach (just past a forested area called La Favorita).
