The Cala Rossa is something of a dreamy place... paradise water, calm... But it's rocky everywhere and there is nowhere to put your towel correctly. No sandbeach at all, and there are slopes everywhere, and beware of cutting your feet on the rocks!

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.

Cala Rossa is one of the best sea-places I have ever seen. Cristal clear water, perfect for diving and snorkeling, not so windy, bright colours everywhere. It really looks like a postcard! The only thing is that there's no beach there, just sharp rocks and...More

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.

Please please please take your swim shoes, or at least shoes to walk as theirs lots of rocks. To ealk until the water. But the water is so clear and beautiful that you could stay all day. Steph

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.
