We took our scouter over to this lovely little bay. The protected turquoise waters looked perfect for a swim. Unfortunately, we didn't have our bathing suits. Lots of boats, big and small were moored there to enjoy the beautiful vista from the water.

Carved in ancient stones. The water so blue your eyes hurt. Shady caves, rough rocks, salty winds. Magnificent! Bring a snorkel mask and go wild.

The best sea I've ever seen, easily to reach the parking with bikes, but then you have to walk a bit to the seaside. Anyway you should go there if you are in Favignana.

Our first beach of many during four days in Favignana was an uncomfortable pleasure. It's a must-visit, but not for the whole day. The water is so clear and the setting picture-postcard. Swim shoes a must.

I took a Line 3 bus and walked to the beach. Wow that was very beautiful view. But I couldn't swim. I was stepping on rocks to try to get closer to blue water. I still couldn't reach. Then I got into the water. I...More
