The sea is beautiful. The water is crystal clear and fresh. However, I wouldn't say that it's amongst the most beautiful. Accessibility is near to impossible. Following a ride on a packed, old bus we walked for some 20 minutes along a very dusty road and climbed down the rocks to the water-side. There's very little space to sit on... More

It was fun walking along the rocky outcroppings and quarry cuts on the waters edge. When we were there it was very windy so there was no chance of swimming unless you wanted to get beaton on the rocks and drown. But it was nice laying out sunbathing and enjoying the view and mist from the waves. Good spot for... More

Favignana is a pearl in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. The water in Cala Rossa is cristalline and warm, fish everywhere around you. Must see!

Favignana... Island of crystal clear waters, warm waters and pure beauty - all of it can be seen here at Cala Rossa. Get yourself to Favignana and enjoy the hot sun and the waters, you won't regret it.

Cala Rossa is absolutely one of the best spot ever! I normally go there by boat, the shades of the water's colour are unreal and perfect! I also recommend to visit it by bike. I rent a bike for 5 Euro per day and I went at 6 am in the morning to see the sunrise. It has been one... More

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".
