Nice place but...

I was doubtful if the place deserves 3 or 4 stars, at the end I gave 4 but it requires some explanation. The location is beautiful, when you reach the tonnara and the sea from... read more

Beautiful grounds, and fantastic views but unfriendly staff, uncomfortable beach area, too packed and a bit expensive for what you get (a spot on the on the concrete).

You would not even know it was here, it's a real jewel, the heritage and history was like a time traveller, so majestic

During our 5 days at Scopello we went to Tonnara di Scopello twice, one accessing it from land at the end of afternoon and during the day, as part of a boat tour. It is an amazing place, former tuna fishing centre, became a hotel and real nice swimming, snorkelling spot

Not sure how they justify 4 euros for access to this. Might make sense if you want to swim and sunbathe for a few hours. We expected to be able to explore the old tuna factory which looked interesting from the road above.

Yes this beach is lovely and maybe our visit was clouded by the fact it was a Saturday, so extremely packed, but we really didn't think it worth a visit. For a start you pay Eur 4 for the pleasure of visiting the beach. On the day we went there was absolutely nowhere to sit - it was already packed... More

We loved this small beach. Yes, it is crowded but not to the point where you can't breathe! The water is crystal clear, there are vending machines in the Tonnara selling drinks and ice creams (and, randomly, popcorn...). There are points from which you can dive into the water. Great view. Saw lots of people snorkeling so there must be... More

I was doubtful if the place deserves 3 or 4 stars, at the end I gave 4 but it requires some explanation. The location is beautiful, when you reach the tonnara and the sea from the road the view is awesome on the Faraglioni and the sea. I can accept paying 4€ per person to preserve the area, but if...

We staid in Scopello and saw the tonnara from the road a few times. It looked inviting but always crowded. So we went there in the late afternoon. We parked our car on the side of the road for free. Entrance 4 euro per person. Our 8 year old daughter for free. The view when walking to the tonnara is... More

We enjoyed our walk down to the sea. The concrete beach area in July was very crowded but the sea clear and good for swimming and snorkelling.
