This is a small but beautiful cove only reachable be sea or a 6 mile walk. We went by boat. Delightful.
The path to Marina di Crapolla runs past our holiday apartment and I'd read previous reviews so we just had to visit. Down was easy but it's a good half hour of mainly steps til you reach this small secluded cove. It wasn't particularly quiet when we went (August) but nothing like the beaches you see elsewhere here with about... More
I am 9 years old and I went to Crapolla and I thought that it was amazing. My dad found a little grotto tucked into the side of the cove. I walked down the stairs and there were lots of lizards.

The teenagers flew up and down with no problem at all. Bring water and food. Took us about 90 minutes down, and about 2 1/2 hours back... More
