Mulino beach and the paths
But how do I get to this wonder? Well the path is made up of paths, being in a natural area the road to reach the sea implies that at a certain point you have to proceed on foot doing some healthy running between the paths. The path will allow you to admire the surrounding landscape completely immersed in nature. The Mulino Beach is, in fact, set between the rocky area of the Timpa and the green vegetation characteristic of the area. The paths require appropriate clothing and special shoes to tackle the hardships due to the presence of lava stones, but the effort deserves as it is possible to see natural elements that you are not used to seeing in the city and that you can touch. The paths that connect to the beach are many, but we recommend the Scala d’Aci path, which is one of those that allows you to have a better view of the landscape starting directly from the center of Acireale .
