Carved in ancient stones. The water so blue your eyes hurt. Shady caves, rough rocks, salty winds. Magnificent! Bring a snorkel mask and go wild.

Please please please take your swim shoes, or at least shoes to walk as theirs lots of rocks. To ealk until the water. But the water is so clear and beautiful that you could stay all day. Steph

The best sea I've ever seen, easily to reach the parking with bikes, but then you have to walk a bit to the seaside. Anyway you should go there if you are in Favignana.

Our first beach of many during four days in Favignana was an uncomfortable pleasure. It's a must-visit, but not for the whole day. The water is so clear and the setting picture-postcard. Swim shoes a must.

Not very far, probably the best water I swimmed in in europe. Bit tricky getting into it in one piece. Avoid in August due to crowds.

The water is amazing! Very clear, and good for snorkeling. The temperature is also really nice, so you can swim for a long time. Remember your bathing shoes! The rocks and cliffs surrounding the area is beautiful to look at, but not so good to...More

This beach is absolutely stunning. We came biking in the afternoon just to see it. If we had more time I would have spent the day there in the crystal clear water.
