Tonnara di Scopello reviews
Good beach and there are decent snorkeling possibilities around the small islands and inlets just around the beach. more »
We went for a wedding in Early October and it was fantastic. It is an incredible location, super romantic. Superb views. The access to the beach is not fantastic but you can swim. Highky... more »
5€ for the parking and 7€ per person for access to the beach. Unbelievable. We ended up in a smaller beach next to this for free. Beaches should be for free not paying to get access. I know people will say that the fee is for the services but I couldn't see a single umbrella down there.
Wonderful place. Unless you are a hotel guest, to need to park the car on the main road (there is a parking) and walk down for less than 10 minutes. You will be rewarded with a wonderful view and super clean water to dive in. There is no beach, only a small platform and some shadow. Not suitable for babies, but great for everyone else. Can get packed though.
