Spectacular view and colors, wonderful sea

From the top of the cliff you have a wonderful view of the cove and the astonishing color of the water. The water is crystal clear and it's a great experience to swim in it

Amazing view and wonderful sea. No matter what, you should go. Just to remind: Parking area is a little bit far. You have to lie on rocks. No platforms, you have to jump over rocks to get in sea. Bring water & panini with you. Be aware of the wind direction, depending on season there may be pink jellyfish.

Hard to reach but worth the effort to sea! Nicer to see the beach from a boats perspective and difficult to enter water if not wearing shoes. Beware of jellyfish.

Im hesitant to write .. This is a hidden GEM... Must be adventurous and resourceful. Some of the swimming areas don't have beaches.

If you have your heart set on seeing one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, I am sorry to say that you will be disappointed. While pretty and remote and rugged it isn't exactly "world class".

After having no less than 4 different people suggest seeing Cala Rossa and tell us how amazing it is, I honestly was a bit disappointed upon arrival. Although the color of the water is beautiful and almost tropical looking, the "beach" was dirty, rocky and not as breath taking as expected. If you are on Favignana it is fun to... More

Warm and crystalline water, great for a bath... however, forget about comfort when outside the water! There are only rocks and difficult paths, impossible to use a umbrella or even to find a spot of shadow to rest. Felt like being a rocky mountain goat...
