Natural beauty of a place this is! We walked it down from Sant'agata. Takes a good hour and includes the 650 steps down a steep hill. There were a few signs for 'Crapella' so follow these. Nowhere to buy drinks so just take loads of...More

We are happy to have read many of the other reviews of Crapolla Cove, as they helped greatly to set our expectations for the beach and, more importantly, the arduous journey there and back. The total elevation change (starting from Torca) is about 1100 ft....More

It's a bit of a trek from the village to the top of the steps. The steps are easy to use but only for relatively fit people, not suitable for pushchairs! The beach is beautiful but it has stones and no sand. There was some...More

We stayed in Sant'Agata and this was our first hike in the area - recommended not only by tripadvisor folks, but the concierge at our hotel. We had heard about the 700 steps to get down there, but we also heard of the small chapel...More

As we were staying in a nearby village, our host advised that this was a lovely spot to walk to. And it certainly was not bad, but it is not easy to get to. Along the main path, stairs have been erected so it is...More

Are you ready to make 700 steps to go down ? If you are fit , bring with some drinks and food as you want to extend your staying till late afternoon . Sunrise is at 10, sunset at 16. More difficult to walk down...More

Beautiful little beach tucked away between cliffs. You need to walk for about an hour downhill from the village of Torca to the beach. Alternatively there is a little road but the last 500 steps you have to walk. It is quite steep but totally...More

Don't let the name fool you--this place is heaven indeed. We had an amazing time hiking down on a warm afternoon--to our own private, secret lagoon! No one there but us. We swam au naturel, then just sat on the beach and took it all...More

We went when it was 34 degrees there, and probably should have enjoyed it more than we did. The 700 steps are very challenging but the views are incredible. There isn't a lot to do when you get down there but swim in the sea....More
