Beautifully clear water. We rented a car for the day and drove and drove. Stoped at all the swimming locations and swam 5 times at 4 locations.

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..

Very nice , but mainly you can go by boat, the water is nice but cold for my liking me even in the summer. Some spots get so busy with small boats,

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

Visiting Sicily in May or June, before summer's heat, is a great pleasure for eyes and soul; Beside landscapes, the architectural beauties and the quality of food, the kindness of people and the clear water, this time of the year offer the peerless please of a flourishing and overflowing nature; flowers and perfumes everywhere....

Just look at the pictures! The old stone quarry beach is beautiful and crazy. Not the easiest place for swimming, hard to reach the water, but still very worth a visit.

I'll start out by saying that I took the pictures but I am still convincing myself it was real. I am well-traveled. This may be one of the most beautiful places I've been. First of all, I am a solo female traveler. I walked from my hotel, close to the city centre, to Cala Rossa and Bue Marino. I saw... More

Absolutely stunning bay. As many people have rightly said, the closest you will find to the swimming pool of the gods. The multiple photos speak for themselves. However, as you can see from many of the photos, it is a steep walk down and there is no "beach". The water's edge (and the "towel" area) are made up of hard,... More
