With Cala Azzurra is the other must-go in Favignana. You can't drive here so you should rent a bike. Once arrived you will have to go downhill. It's rocky and steepy in some points so wear sneakers. The Cala is very rocky, also quite sharp rocks, which makes lying less confortable than in Cala Azzurra and it makes sea shoes... More

Not much of a beach and you have to be flexible and adaptive finding a spot to sunbathe but then this bay is not so much about sunbathing but about the sub aquatic experience. The view of the bay is also breathtaking. Wear more than flip flops to get to the water and Aqua shoes are useful but not essential... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in Favignana on our honeymoon from the U.S. and it was a little windy when we got there. We'd read about Cala Rossa and wanted to go but everyone from hotel staff to taxi drivers discouraged us, saying it was "not beautiful today". I'm pretty sure it's beautiful every day!!! But I understand... More

Breathtaking blue waters, but if you're keen to swim make sure you bring water shoes as its a bit hairy getting down to the beautiful, refreshing waters. We didn't bring any and still managed to get down and up unscathed but wished we had brought these and noticed all the Italians wore them. Also bring water and a beach blanket... More

This is one the best italian beaches, limpid water in a natural wonderful environment. I strongly suggest you come early in the morning, better on a small boat to dive into an incredible sea

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
