We were staying in the nearby hotel Kilina and found this beach one afternoon and had a snack there we then went back the next day in the morning, get there early as parking is horrendous. We stayed for a couple of hours. Water was really warm no fast currents and nice and shallow for the kids to play safely.

I think that this is the best view I ever seen. I was in many place in Italy and in Sicily (Ustica, Lampedusa, Eolie), but I think this is the most breath-taking place.

Sailing in the Egadi Islands is wonderful in itself, this bay is the cherry! The shape, the color if its crystal clear water, the rock formations with caves and pyramids - stunning. We went from the harbor of Favignana by bicycle, thereby seeing stone quarries, some of which serve as homes and gardens now, unique! And if you continue to... More

What a beautiful place on earth! Did this awesome sailing trip with my friends in Juily 2015 around Egadi islands. Favignana is definitely a must see when you visit Sicily. FInd some shots from the sailing trip in this video, really had a blast: https://vimeo.com/133592009

Very beautiful place - a bit of a hike down so be careful in flip flops. Definitely take your water shoes with you if you want to swim. Very rocky where the ocean meets the shore.

Great bay with dream link water colours. Not much room for laying on the beach, best option is to hire a boat and anchor in the bay.

Great colour - beach is bad. Beach is actually sharp stones you walk on and can get seriously hurt in case of any loss of balance

About an hours walk from the port but it's well worth the trip . Absolutely fantastic beach . The water is so refreshing and absolutely crystal clear , it's a dream to swim in this beautiful water . I had the opportunity to swim the length of the bay and it's just gorgeous . Easily one of the best places... More
