Beautiful water and an amazing cavern of tufa quarrying.

Highly recommended for swimming and sunbathing. It is accessible on a rustic road where one guy has a shelter stall selling refreshments. A must see.

This place is a sum-up of the whole island: cristal clear water, rocky cliffs, nice underwater life.

This was the highlight of our stay in Favignana, at least from a non culinary perspective. A transparent, warm water, absolutly perfect for snorkelling. Some extra equipment may be useful (especially for walking on the stones) but overall the best water we ever swam in. A must go. Try to stay on the south side, as the north side is... More

An out of the way beach. Difficult access but worth it for the agile. Nearby tufo quarries are of interest especially if explained by a local guide.

It's one of the most popular beaches in Favignana, mostly worth seeing it. It could be a bit crowded in the summer, but definitely worth it. Go swimming in the shallow water and lose yourself in the calming sea waves

Cala Rosa is on Favignana Island, that is a part of a small sicilian archipelago Egadi Islands. You can reach it by ferry boat, that leaves every hour from Trapani main port, and the journey is short... especially comparing to the beauty that you are going to. Cala Rosa is the best beach we have seen during our visit to... More
