great place for a swim in the Mediterranean, nice, quiet beach, crystal clear water, very rocky, it was about an hours walk from the port but it would be easy to cycle to.

not exactly a beach (no sand or such) but worthy going there, very peaceful and amazing colors of water, sky, rocks. Water is very shallow, you can get there by boat too and just get off the boat and walk to the shore. One of the most beautiful spots on Favignana.

For sure the best beach on Favignana. Looks just stunning. Perfect for snorkeling because of very rich underwater life. Although reaching water is not so easy because of angular and sharp and rocky shore. Also that's the reason why there are not many places to lay down comfortably but believe me - it's all worth it.

Beautiful coastal area and turquoise waters for an amazing swim. Make sure you rent a bicycle in town to get here and see the rest of the island. Amazing.

White sand, white rocks and too many shades of blue!!! Peaceful and immaculate place you must visit if you are travelling to Favignana. There are no bars, restaurant or kind of services (there's only a little chiringuito at the top of the mountain), so you should bring with you the luch and something to drink, but it is all worth...

When the wind is not blowing too hard Cala Rossa is absolutely stunning. we highly recommend Rocco boat (ask around, he is very famous). He doesn't speak a great deal of italian but his food and simpathy is well worth the money!

An awesome crystal water but will not recommend it if you want to lay and relax, cause there is no place to lay on the rocks and to go down in the water the rocks are sharp.. I would recommend to wear the acua shoes.. But it's a must to visit that beach if you are in Favignana..
