This was the highlight of our stay in Favignana, at least from a non culinary perspective. A transparent, warm water, absolutly perfect for snorkelling. Some extra equipment may be useful (especially for walking on the stones) but overall the best water we ever swam in. A must go. Try to stay on the south side, as the north side is... More

An out of the way beach. Difficult access but worth it for the agile. Nearby tufo quarries are of interest especially if explained by a local guide.

It's one of the most popular beaches in Favignana, mostly worth seeing it. It could be a bit crowded in the summer, but definitely worth it. Go swimming in the shallow water and lose yourself in the calming sea waves

Cala Rosa is on Favignana Island, that is a part of a small sicilian archipelago Egadi Islands. You can reach it by ferry boat, that leaves every hour from Trapani main port, and the journey is short... especially comparing to the beauty that you are going to. Cala Rosa is the best beach we have seen during our visit to... More

Must see this piece of heaven!! Rent a bike and discover this beautiful place. Please use specific shoes (Water shoes) as the rocks are very sharp. Bring water and food.

With Cala Azzurra is the other must-go in Favignana. You can't drive here so you should rent a bike. Once arrived you will have to go downhill. It's rocky and steepy in some points so wear sneakers. The Cala is very rocky, also quite sharp rocks, which makes lying less confortable than in Cala Azzurra and it makes sea shoes... More
