Alternatively, you can enjoy a relaxing walk along the golden sand of Cefalù beach or a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters. You will feel like a star of the jet set like the protagonists of the famous and multi-award-winning TV Show The White Lotus, which scenes in the beach club have been shot in Cefalù.
