Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I have been working in tourism for years and have lived and experienced a lot abroad, but never such a cheek. You pay here 15 euros per adult for nothing.

A guided tour of the private complex is offered, but sometimes you can do it only after two hours after your arrival. If you want to spend this time wisely, it is absolutely impossible.

The small restaurant, which sells drinks and appetizers completely overpriced, has no tables.

There is also little space for bathers, but most of the time is awfully full.

Here someone makes his pocket neatly full and does nothing for the fact that this place is also beautifully preserved.

I advise everyone not to go there. There are boat tours that, among other things, visit also Tonnara di. Scopello and you only spend a little more money than for the whole nothing on site directly.

What a rip off! €45 for 4 of us and when we got to the area it was already packed. No seats in the shade. We ended up dragging seats up a driveway hill and shoving them to one side, so we could have shade. It wasn't comfortable. The shop is expensive (the only one on the beach) and they have a ridiculous rule where the guests of the hotel can buy Aperol Spritz and Negronis - but all of the mere visitors aren't allowed to buy them! We had to make do with bottled beer... Bizarre rule. It was PACKED. I'd avoid at all costs....

The best part of our trip. We didn’t know what to expect, we were just looking for a beach, but stumbled across this. We spent around 4 hours there, swimming and eating. The water was absolutely beautiful.

"Tonnara di Scopello" are private grounds and an entry fee (EUR 15 per person) is being charged. When we paid at the entry point, we were told that we could see the museum and that there would also be a nice place to sit to have food and drinks. This sounded nice so we paid and went down the pedestrian path.

Arriving at the grounds, we realized that we were not allowed to access the museum, unless we took part in an official tour - one tour had just started but we were sent away and asked to wait for the next one, which was almost an hour and a half away.

We also realized that large parts of the ground were blocked off and not accessible for visitors, including what is (assumingly) the proper terrace beloging to the building. The only option to sit down was to fight for a small foldable chair in the completely crowded central area - the only accessible area - with basically no shadow. We decided that it was not worthwhile to stand in the scorching sun in the hope of a chair and wating for the next tour of the museum, so we left. For us, this was a total rip off, and the statements made at the entry point were misleading.

Moreover the parking across the street (which to be fair is separate from Tonnara di Scopello) charged EUR 10 for less than one hour of parking, even though on their sign at the entrance stated EUR 2.50 per hour as the rate.

Unless you go to Tonnara di Scopello to swim and sunbathe, we recommend to use the EUR 15 per person entry + parking fee for a better purpose

I can imagine it would be a huge pain to visit here in the high season, but we came in May. You have to park about a five to ten minute walk away in a paid lot. The prices seem like they go up or down depending on if it’s the high season or not. The walk down to the sea is a bit steep but they’ve done a nice job making it accessible for pedestrians, eking out a nice trail for everyone to walk down.

My parents are in their late sixties and managed fine both ways. Our four year old had to be carried the way back, but that’s to be expected. This place by the sea is breathtaking but not so huge. There are free chairs but I’m sure they get taken up quickly in July and august. The bathrooms are nice and there is a small cafe.

It was a bit (a lot) cold to swim, in my opinion, but people were! My daughter enjoyed climbing on the rocks, so it wasn’t particularly relaxing for me as the sea there was quite choppy the day we were there. But I imagine with older kids or no kids that this would be really relaxing to read a book in a chair and sunbathe, or have an invigorating swim before heading back up to check out the town of Scopello.

You pay an extortionate amount of money to sit on a deck chair for the day, you are penned in apart from getting into the sea, you can’t even move your chair around as they are so densely packed! Small cafe selling usual Italian treats. We left after 25 minutes, just not for us!!

The negative reviews are mostly Trip Advisor's fault for listing this as a "thing to do" rather than a place to stay. Think of the 15 euro admission as what you would pay to use the pool for a day at a hotel you can't afford, and it's a typical price. But to just see it, skip it: there are nicer beaches with better cafes nearby where you will just pay a few euros for parking.

Apparently prices change a lot. It was 15€/Person in September 22. Overcrowded, almost impossible to find a free chair. There are better places in the area.

We live abroad but always return to Palermo for a few weeks in summer; never before been in this place but such a nice discovery. Not sure why people say is a tourist trap/ask you to book and pay considering they have staff working, the place is impecable and there’s a guide doing tours of the tonnara at every hour (worth doing the visit).
Price also includes a sunbed and water is nice and blue. Never overcrowded as they have a limit of daily visitors.
I would recommend to anyone around the area; views are breathtaking too from the moment you start going down the hill.
The only negative point is, if you didn’t bring your food and expect to eat something there, the choice is small, not many varieties of sandwiches or other options, same for the drinks.
