This place is amazing, although not ideal as your everyday beach. It is convenient for a splash on the way to or from Valle dei Templi... if you are happy to endure the climb. The colours are fantastic. The layout is impressive. Well worth a stop!

It is one of the beaches anyone should visit in sicily. Advice on sundays try to avoid it especially in august as you can get stack in the traffic on the way back.

We travelled here for the sunset which was amazing. Though a bit busy and this was September, it was easy to find a place to sit and watch. The white cliffs itself are mesmerising to look at, and have a natural tiered formation. This makes for natural seating. It's about a fifteen minute walk from the entrances to the beach... More

Lots of steps but well worth it. The 'Turkish Steps' are beautiful. Take your bathers and have a swim.

Absolutely beautiful place with the contrast of the white cliffs and the turquoise water! The water is a refreshing temperature and the cliffs arent slippery at all :) But be aware of the walk down down to the beach from the road, it is long and steep (on the way up). Bring some water/food but there is a cafe to... More

Spectacular views and an ideal place to spend a few days or a romantic. Spectacular views, which are very different in the morning and evening. Great choice: you can lie on a lounger rock, can be on the rocks, swimming in the warm sea, dive, sail, swim and climb on small rocks or enjoy the romance. If you are traveling... More

Must see in sicilia.. this is pure nature and absolutely fantastic. Some people go swimming here or for a sun bath. But this is not the best beach to do so. A lot of people are parking around the street, going up and down the chairs. Summarized its very crowded, but anyway you should see it. Its very impressing and... More

This rock is something special. It is special point, which is very good to visit. You could climb up and visit all around. The climb is not so huge but you should park a car at parking place and walk for a few minutes to rocks. There is also possible to do some bathing and maybe go in to the... More
