The camp location is one of the best I ever visited, directly on a steep cliff of volcanic rocks eroded by the waters. The tents camp site is not extremely big and shadowed by lemons trees. The staff is friendly and ready to give you all the information you may need. Little bathroom located close to the tent site, another,... More

We pitched our tent on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Great stargazing, extremely friendly staff, and clean. We will definitely return. The only downside was the men's restrooms were closed for construction. Also, the stairs to the beach were closed.

English version below. Ritorniamo volentieri in questo campeggio che gode di una posizione a picco sul mare indimenticabile. Gli anni segnano questa struttura, anche se alcuni lavori di miglioramento sono in corso. Aree comuni e docce pulite. L’area camper service è inesistente e il wc chimico è primitivo e poco comodo per le piazzole più lontane. Personale gentilissimo che cerca... More

Set on a terraced terrain, perched on a cliff top and overlooking a vast and stunning seascape, the camping seems floating mid air in the green and lush La Timpa Natural Reserve, at the very edge (literally) of a charming little fishing village, where everybody knows one another, with old men gossiping on the benches' main square. A true time... More

A beautyful place. However no sanitaire cleaning during 5 days we have been there. No market .just the office works. IT is mid season ( not low season and also not low prices) . I had expected more of this camping in maintenance.

Stunning location, unfortunately not valued as it should be. At our arrival they were not really welcome and not even really honest in the tent price calculation... but misunderstanding can happen. The camping area on top is fine but the closest toilet were not cleaned. Only after few days we found at the lower level bigger and cleaner toilets. What... More

We stayed here recently whilst on a 3 week cycling tour of Sicily and it was the gem of all the camp grounds that we stayed at. Stunning views from our camp site and super friendly and helpful staff. We had dinner outside at the restaurant high on the hill and dined on fresh fish straight from the waters below.... More

We stayed there for a couple of nights and had a nice place for our tent on a cliff - the view was great. The facilities were clean and the food in the restaurant great! The elevator to the sea was an interesting experience. The only disadvantage was the long way to the city.

Amazing Place!!! We went with other two friends from Malta for a week end and was a lovely trip. We booked two comfortable bungalows near the sea and in the morning we woke up with the sound of the waves and the birds! We met friendly people, and excellent services! Most important, beautiful view above the volcanic rocks in front... More
