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

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.
