What you can do and see to transform the holiday into a real experience

Live Favignana

It is impossible to summarise in just one page centuries of history of the island and its many facets.

Known also as “butterfly on the sea” because of its particular shape, Favignana, the largest of the Egadi

Islands, seduces with a play of colours created by the convergence of the blue of the sea and the white of the limestone walls.

There are many things to do and see on holiday onFavignana; here are some suggestions.



Certainly the first thing that comes to mind. You can choose the beaches and bays with fine golden sand(Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, the Calamoni), or the characteristic sand and pebble coves (Punta Longa, Preveto, Faraglioni and Punta Sottile).

  • Cala Rossa, one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe
    All the coves on Favignana are beautiful but Cala Rossa probably deserves a special mention. Several times designated the most beautiful beach in Italy, it is often included among the top ten most beautiful beaches in Europe.
  • Diving
    Discover the splendid seabeds of Favignana, Marettimo, Levanzo, Maraone and Formica during amazing dives. There are several diving centres and schools that organise activities for beginners and experts.
  • Grottos
    To live to the full the beauty of the sea, be sure not to miss the chance to go out to the grottos. A famous one is the Grotta dei Sospiri that can be reached by boat.
  • Boat trips
    Various boat trips around the islands are organised, with stop at the port of Favignana. From the tour of the Egadi islands to the tour of Favignana and Levanzo, a great way to soak up the beauty of the place.


“Plunge” into history

If you are passionate about history and culture, the island of Favignana won’t let you down.

To start, there is the museum of the former Stabilimento Florio with exhibits from different historical periods. Then there are the Norman castles: Santa Caterina and San Giacomo (both are not accessible).

The archaeological zone of San Nicola is of real historical interest.
