Best place I had been on Sicily! I would recomend it to everyone! It looks a bit dangerous but after a while you are able to hop on them without any problems, and go further to the beutiful beach to take a swim :)

I️ could have stayed for days. The most beautiful and relaxing place. The weather is perfect for it in October. Sunny and comfortable, water is still warm enough for a swim and not crowded.

Hi. In November you never know . Once I visited Sicily end of November and it was lovely and hot 24℃ . Couple of years later was still around 18℃ but it was raining. I don't think it's going to be cold but might be wet .
