“Sea, sea and ... sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2015 NEW

Very beautiful island and surrounding landscapes with the other islands of the archipelago on both sides and the coast of Sicily not far to the East with, Trapani, Marsala and Erice promontory. The best of the island is the sea; even there are not so much beaches you can have a bath, a dive and a swim everywhere. Prices of everything are very high: be careful, you can spend easily a lot of money doing very simple things.

“Best Holiday Island Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2015

The best place I visited while on a month long trip to Sicely. The athomosphere, the vibe, the holiday spirit and very authentic.
Found 1st floor holiday apartment accomodation right in the middle of the main square, looking out at the Church to the right and all the shops & resturants below.
Visited the entire island by bicycle which came with the Apartment, and swam on every coce and beach.
I am usually a been there done that type, but this is one place 'I will be back'

“Nice place, unique experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2015

Crystal clear waters, lots of cool spots to visit on the island. Best way to get around is to rent a bike or scooter....would be tough to walk from spot to spot with the blistering heat. Only downfall is that the beaches are very rocky and pretty small (difficult to find a spot to put your towels down). Cala Rossa is breathtaking, but you'll need to bring water shoes since rocks near water are very sharp. Bue Marino was best spot since it has some caves to get some shade and a bit more space to set up your towels. Great for a one day visit, wouldnt recommend if traveling with small children.

In a nutshell: crystal clear water and delicious food :)

We were here for a few days and loved it!

We rented electric bikes and managed to see some of the best beaches ever!

“Summer Love”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2015

The Med Sea is like a swimming pool. The visibility is forever. We swam most of each day.. coming up for the best local food at beach side restaurants.
