So overrated, we were told it was one of the most beautiful beaches in the world....obviously these people have not seen anything in their lives! Sorry but a big fat zero from us!
Be prepared to walk a good 20 minutes in dirt to find yourself in a dirty beach covered in dog pooh. Highly recommended bringing fresh water for the hike and don't go if you have health problems as there's no way of getting back fast. Big zero points from us. We were there summer 2019.

It’s a bit of a drive along a dirt track to get to the car park. You’re charged €3 for parking. It’s then a 20 min walk to the beach (€3.50 to pay to get into the nature reserve).
It’s certainly very pretty when you get to the beach though. The water is warm and crystal clear. There’s no shade or facilities at the beach so take everything you need with you

This beach is part of the vendacari reserve. When we visited in September we followed the signs from the main road. It is a dirt track / unmade up road to a car park that charged 3 euro. You then walk back to the entrance of the reserve where they were taking temperature checks, and recording visitor details for track and trace. Entry to the reserve was then another 3 or 3.5 euros( can’t quite remember!) per person. There is a family ticket but this is just for immediate family (eg 2 adults with children) it can’t be used for siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles etc (there was a long argument going on about this in Italian!)
You then walk into the reserve to the beach. It’s a good 20 mins when you are carrying all your beach stuff and in the heat (no shade) so come prepared. Eventually you get to steps down to the beach. The beach is a cove and very pretty, although being a nature reserve the sand had quite a bit of natural debris (pieces of wood etc) so don’t expect immaculate groomed sand. There are no facilities (as you would expect) so you need to bring EVERYTHING with you. It was very windy the day we went, not sure if that is normal so it made it hard to keep an umbrella up and there were waves in the sea- but still very nice for a swim. We didn’t explore other beaches on the reserve but good for at least one visit. However I think there were overall nicer beaches in the area.

Calamosche is quite a small bay, that can only be reached by foot (about 20 minutes walk). Being located in the Vendicari Reservoir is quite a unique experience with crystal clear water. Remember to bring enough water and food, and maybe check the wind situation to make sure you’ll have the best experience!

Having been to the crowded, packed like sardines, beaches of southern Sicily, coming to Calamosche was a pleasure. It offers children some fun searching for fish and crabs by the rocks along the side. The southern end of the beach is protected by cliffs making it calm as a bay, while the northern end of the beach offers some modest waves for some body surfing. Really nice for children, especially at the calmer southern end.

Beach accessible after a dirt road. There is a parking (price 2€ all day). After a 20-30 minute walk under the scorching sun, you arrive at the beautiful beach of Calamosche. It's a wild beach, with no bar or other services, better to arrive here prepared with everything you need (water, food and umbrella). The water is marvelous and not too cold, the colors are magnificent and you can also see fish. Moreover here there are several trekking paths that connect the beach of Calamosche to that of Vendicari (6Km) and Marianelli (2.5Km).

First visit to beach and a learning experience for sure, but first off living in Sicily we’ve had opportunity to go to different beaches and this is the first one where the water was so crystal clear even my husband who is 6 5’ could see his feet on the at the deepest points. It was nice and chilly and honestly stunning.

Pros/suggestions:
Get there EARLY for parking and for beach spot
Bring an umbrella, towels, and lots of sunscreen
Water shoes because the sand does have lava rock and it burns your feet.
Snorkeling gear

Warning:
It is a solid 15/20 min walk from parking to beach. This is ALL rough/rocky uneven terrain. There are several steps down to the beach area. In the Mediterranean Sun with little to no shade and gets very hot.
Carts/buggies are not allowed

Almost no infrastructure for tourists, only a parking more than 1km away from the beach
The water is just ok for snorkeling. Also you can do some cliff jumping, I've jumped from the far right cliffs. Don't forget to bring from home/hotel everything you'll need that day!

Getting here was a bit longer than expected. We accidentally parked by the beginning of the natural reserve. Big mistake because it took us more than 7 miles round trip. There is a parking lot much closer to it which we found out when we got there. Water was super clear and shallow for quite a bit out but a bit chilly. Was nice after the hot hike we did.
