Few people went for a swim but too cold for me. Car park 5 euros a day. The only tariff available. Everybody parks in the street. I imagine it gets crowded in the summer . The beach cafe staff is rubbish. I managed to get...More

Rather strangely, there aren't any obvious signs to this spectacular sight, you have to rely on commercial signs and enter (for free) via a kiosk or restaurant. It is quite a long descent to the beach - and a long ascent back up at the...More

One of the places you need to visit when you are in Sicily. Beautiful beach. Clean and cold water. A wonderful place . Provided parking near the beach. If you can, get some food and plenty of fluids before coming to the beach.

The view is just amazing, if you are planning to visit the South of Sicily don't miss out on this. The parking is a bit far from the beach, you will have to descend stairs, but it is all worth it.

Lovely to look down at the white cliffs, if going into the beach be mindful as it is steep, long and winding. When going into the sea be aware of the rocks beneath as they do hurt if you kick them as we found out....More

We stopped here on the way to Marsala from Agrigento. To save time we viewed it from the overlook rather than walking down to it and walking on it. Afterwards, we drove to Lido Rossello to view some similar rock formations up close.

The only thing I can remember at the moment is the parking fine I received for supposedly incorrect parking. This isn’t clear at all why parking is not permitted and therefore questionable practice. Someone said that as the government has difficulty collecting taxes from its...More

You do not even have to go down to see its beauty! There are view terraces from above. A paid parking nearby helps the tourists. Although I have recently broken my leg I am still in rehabilitation, I managed to go down the stairs. It...More
