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..

When visiting Favignana you have to go to Cala Rossa! Not for swimming, because that can be a bit difficult. But go there for the great colors! You will be amazed, it is so beautiful! You really can't believe that you are still in Europe when you stand on the rocks and look down. Also seeing the places where the... More

... but if you want to just chill on a sandy beach then you are better off one of the other wonderful location that the island offers. That being said the location is amazing, the rocky beach makes the water so clean and clear, it is really a must see. You can also walk around to fully enjoy the landscape.... More
