“A bit of a trek, but well worth it!”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

Approach from the east side, and the first beach is a 20 minute walk which gets very crowded. Worth going on to the next beach, so pack lots of water, food and wear good walking shoes or boots. Take snorkeling stuff as there are accessible coves and rocky areas to explore. If possible, try to arrive at the park entrance very early to allow walking time. Parking is 5 Euros and entrance costs to the park are reasonable. We didn't stay as long and we wanted to because of the crowds. Water is crystal clear for swimming.

“A beautiful hidden cove round the corner from Mondello”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

Beautiful spot, crystal clear water, much quieter than Mondello. However, it must be said it isn't a place to put a towel down and relax as there are mainly rocks and flat sandy areas are few and far between. Despite it's beauty and short walk (20 minutes) from Mondello, it's perhaps not the isolated paradise as other reviews have described, especially on the weekend.

“Wild, untamed beauty”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

A local friend introduced me to this incredible bathing spot not far from the crowded Mondello Beach. Despite being a weekend, there were only a handful of people when I went to this clothing-optional place which made it perfect. You need to be reasonably fit to walk along ledges and bends to get here but the natural beauty of Capo Gallo make it well worth the effort. Take some water and eatables - there is nothing remotely commercial here.
