I found it so peaceful and relaxing. Fresh fish comes in every morning, no matter what local restaurants you go to the meals are great if you love fish. You are better off not taking a car to the island. Favignana has bikes and vespa...More

Take a walk to Cala Rossa, go by bicycle, but just get there and stand on the cliff top and be awestruck at the beauty of this paradise. Words and pictures can never do this masterpiece justic.

This bay is great, either you visit it from the ground or on a boat. Turquoise waters, and a unique landscape of rocks in any shape make it unique and a place to visit. Take your comfortable shoes to go down the cliff and something...More
