It sounds idyllic in the guide book but there is really nothing much there when you've paid 5 euros to park the car & then 3 euros to get in to what is a small swimming area but no restaurant, no cafe / bar only some vending machines. We liked it much better when we saw it from our boat... More

We were dismayed to unpack at Zingaro on the Scopello side only to be told it was closed for the day due to wind/fire. Big bummer. So we came here and had a great day. great water,scenery, swimming, snorkling, people watching. We brought lunch from town; they do have vending machines for a pop or espresso. It was terrific. So...

We paid 1 Euro for parking to walk down to this beauty spot, as recommended in our guide book. Then found we had to pay another 3 Euros each to enter! It is a stunning setting, but nothing to do except admire the scenery. We also thought there might be a small museum about the tuna fishing industry. We thought... More

We were a bit surprised that you have to pay even on foot as there is no parking:3 Euros each was quite a lot for a couple of hours.The setting is amazing but there were hardly any loungers left in the sun and there is no actual beach. But it was an experience! Oh,and there is no cafe or bar-only... More

I really can not understand why they ask money for that place. Yes it looks nice from the photos, not a bad view if you are there, but that's all. We arrived around 7 pm and still entrance fee for a 20 minutes visit... Can not imagine how crowded it in summer. A concentrate place to lie your towels, max.... More

This is a private swimming spot located at the site of an old tuna fishing port - it is not a beach. There is very limited space for sun bathers to you need to get there early if you want shade - in July all the shade was taken by 10am. The entry price of 3.50 euro gets you a... More

This is a historic site that is overlooked by ancient lookout towers and striking rock formations. The shallow and clear waters are lined with rocks and a boat ramp. You have to pay to go there for a look/swim and share the concrete with a crowd. If you like a sand beach there are better places close by but this... More

Not worth paying to see. Hopelessly overcrowded. And there's no beach and nowhere to sit down except on a concrete platform.

Supposed to be a museum but we couldn't find one! Just some fishing gear stacked up. It's very scenic but you're basically paying for the privilege of being on a film set - Oceans 12.
