This is a stunning location with views across the bay. The complex of buildings was formerly a tuna fish processing base. There is a steep road down to the complex from the main road. The best views are to be had from the main road.

We have visited this place during rainy day ( well, actually it was raining almost every day..) and the view was not so splendid as we expected. Nevertheless, still worth seeing and snorkeling - we were swimming in freezing water and still had fun. There was plenty of fish!

Nice place to sunbathe and snorkel, very pretty. Would not bother going if it wasn't a sunny day though. We went in October and it was fairly busy so I imaging it would be packed in summer. Worth noting you also have to pay 5 euros to park, as well as the entrance fee. Also, there is no cafe but... More

This old tuna factory is very interesting and also an enjoyable relaxation by the sea. Deck chairs are provided and swimming was a pleasure. Very clear water. We had an enjoyable afternoon there. Definitely would recommend.

This is a good place to swim, and interesting to see what is left from the tuna factory. However, compared to beaches and places to swim in the area, I think it is only average. The "beach" is basically cemented over. It is easy to find.

Beautiful and charming place, perfect to spend a night close to Zingaro reserve. We were in the Sotto la Torre room, very cute, with private terrace.

Why does it cost 3,50€ to sit on concrete block near the ocean without any shadow? Go 500 meters further down the road, you'll find a nice free beach.

Scopello is Sicily's best kept secret which I'm now revealing. The beaches are beautiful but the one at Largo Tonnara is one you have to pay 3 Euro to go to as it is private but it is worth one visit just to experience it. There is accommodation there and a small area with vending machines for food and drink.... More

We arrived to Tonnara about 45 m in before the closing time. Don't even think of getting some kind of discount for entry. We left the car by the side of the road (because we didn't know where to park and there were already parked several cars). The place is beautiful. The nature is really an invincible artist. We were... More

Maybe it was the high expectations but we were left disappointed. It was very hot the day we visited. We showed up at around 9:30am and there was already a line waiting to pay €3,5 to go inside. As good tourists, we waited patiently. Eventually (after some sweating) we 'got in'. Now the setting is stunning, the water is crystal... More
