Camping with a sea view

Camping site Jonio (1.2 ha) is located in a wooded area. There are eighty touring pitches on the grounds. You have a choice of a pitch with more or less shade or even in the sun. Please keep in mind that the surface of the terraced camping site is mostly hard. The most beautiful pitches have seaview. Ideal to watch the sunrise. Camper vans and caravans are parked on a terrain with beautiful view of the cliffs and the waves. 

The well equipped bungalows and mobile homes stand relatively close together. Yet, you have ample privacy.

Swimming, windsurfing and snorkelling

You can reach the sea and rocky coast via a flight of stairs. There is no beach, but you can swim in the sea between the rocks. You can go windsurfing and snorkelling at Jonio. Diving lessons are also offered.

Dining out

The camping site restaurant offers an extensive menu and has a large terrace. Pizzas, snack and take-away meals are also available here. The bar has a spacious area featuring regular shows and performances by dancers or musicians. On the camping site you can buy daily fresh bread or breakfast and a modest range of groceries.

Great stopover. I was a bit concerned by some of the negative reviews but we were very happy with this site. The two young women in reception were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The site was quiet so we had lots of choice and chose a space under the trees opposite reception. I have read a comment that grey waste disposal was difficult. This is patently not true and it is as easy as anywhere else. Haven\'t used the chemical waste disposal but it does look slightly odd as it is a tube.

There are a lot of cats around but they didn\'t cause us any problems. Would definitely stop here again

Great site on a lava outcrop by the sea. Pitches are level and water is close by. Electric is only 3 amp so bring a gas kettle. Toilets and showers are very clean, sanitary blocks are old and tired but functional. Easy access to motorhome services. Approach to campsite could be difficult if you follow gps as you end up in narrow lane. The campsite signs take you to a wide access point. The chemical toilet point is badly designed and it is impossible to completely empty the toilet cassette.
Good for Catania, Etna etc.

Wonderful. Perched a few feet above the sea. Brilliant sea swimming. Very helpful, multilingual, staff. Large supermarket 200m away. Frequent buses into town. Just wondering if we can manage to get back there for a couple of days before leaving Sicily.

As a city site pitch size was good. Toilet facilities require an update, they were clean but are old. Very good information and help from staff for surrounding attractions, where to get buses etc. Access could be hard at times of school pick-up in afternoon as parents park everywhere and block access road and gateway. We had to wait 25 minutes for a car to be moved! Very good for visits to Taormina, Etna train and Syracuse.

Reception was very welcoming and gave us lots of information on the surrounding areas to visit. We had a shady pitch under some trees near the restaurant which was fine as our days were mostly out and about sightseeing. You can access the sea over some rocks and down ladders which was wonderful at the end of a hot day touring, but would not be accessible for anybody with mobility issues. The sanitary facilities were poor, the showers were turned on by pulling a piece of flex wire! The toilets were clean. A restaurant was on site which was busy of an evening, we didn't try it out. Easy access to Catania, Etna and surrounding touristy spots.

Travelling party: Seniors

Convenient for visiting Etna and Taormina and well signposted which is just as well as driving in Catania is a challenge! We were expecting more up to date facilities - these need replacing as although clean they are far from modern. We were in the shaded section which suited us rather than the gravel section nearer the sea. Good recycling. Very poor motorhome facilities - so difficult to access and on a slope, that we gave up. In order to get to the motorway we found it easier to turn in the nearby supermarket, otherwise you ended up miles up the road in busy villages. Very handy having the entrance and exit straight across the road, rather than having to negotiate difficult turns with cars parked.
