“True South!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2014

These Egadi Islands have such a great mix of incredible colors - the water, sky, stone, plants - that I wished I was a painter! But for us mortals there is the nice, relaxed attitude of the people as well as their excellent cooking to be enjoyed. As already said by others, rent a bike. I find electrically assisted quite nice, with it I made it around the island and even (almost) up to the Santa Caterina fort for an overview! Cala Rossa is pure emerald, a bit further east there are gigantic un-natural caves, where the tufo stone used to be cut out of the hillside. Later at the table be courageous and try some raw tuna, if available: a delicacy! Tuna roe (Botarga) over a plate of pasta or tuna once more, as polpette (meat-balls, made out of fish, words fail me) cooked in tomato sauce. Or all sort grilled fish. Sweets are really sweet, fruit tastes as it should, and a nice cold Grillo will be just the thing to accompany your meal! Bello!!!

“Cala Rossa was stunning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

Cala Rossa is a beautiful rocky beach with crystal clear water which you can walk to or cycle from the port. Favignana is a great island for biking and a hike to the delapidated castle is well recommended

“Not only sea, not only summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2014

It's a place where nature and modern times are wisely blended. Well served by ferries and hydrofoils, you'll find also a good coverage for your smartphone. But also a bike riding dimension. And breathtaking places, not only to take a smimm.
