Simply the best you can see in Favignana Island. Reach this paradise you can do with a vehicle being located away from the town. By bicycle or scooter easily hired just out of the harbor. I've been here two times, I guarantee this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy and beyond. Wild, rocky, swimming freely, it is... More

I spent a summer working in Favignana, this one is definitely one of its best beaches. I've been travelling a lot, but I still dream of Favignana's blue sea which I hardly found in any other places.

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.
