It's true, the water is crystal blue and probably the most impressive I've seen on the island, but if you're looking for a sandy beach then I'd recommend visiting other parts of Favignana. It's not ideal for sunbathing it's more for swimming and be sure...More

Not very far, probably the best water I swimmed in in europe. Bit tricky getting into it in one piece. Avoid in August due to crowds.

We loved this rock beach with weird cubical formations (looked like a quarry) and amazingly turquoise waters. The most beautiful beach in Italy as claimed? Not sure about that, but it is definitely gorgeous. It was a bit crowded in July, cannot imagine it august.

The best beach in Favignana. Please respect it and don't leave trash in the water! From Trapani with Siremare for 30€ 2 persons round trip

We reached Cala Rossa biking for about 15 minutes, it is very easy to get there from the city centre. Just the best: a natural swimming pool with transparent water and just beautiful panorama. Love it!
