I love this place. If you're after easy parking, shops, kiosks, restaurants, cafes, loud tourists with Australian, American, German or English accents, then don't come here. The reason this place is so good is everyone is here for the same reason, to relax in the...More

The Tonnara has a very unique scenario, it's an abandoned tuna fishing place with a very small spot to swim. Rocks, shoes needed! Panorama is beautiful!

Not much left to see. Nice place to check out. Not much parking. Could be a good spot to fish as that's what I saw a few locals doing. We stop by on our way to the reserve, spent maybe 20 minutes on site.

Don't expect to find a parking lot nearby! Better walk for a while and you will be rewarded. Nowadays the "Tonnara" is only a remain of a big factory where tuna was taken and processed. Some 50 fishermen and workers used to live there. Activities...More

Don't know really why to see it (why did I bother?). Maybe from the boat have a glance at it, knowing that fishermen used it to produce tuna meat back in the days... But that all...
