Architectural Building Landmark
Take a trip back in time to Tonnara di Scopello, the Mediterranean's only surviving traditional tuna fishery and a popular location for moviemakers. A medieval tower rises above the oleander-, olive-, and almond-lined property. The rocky bay is topped with prickly-pear-covered rocks. Stay overnight inside one of the original fishermen's rooms, take a guided tour through the museum, and explore the underwater archaeological museum on a diving tour of the bay.

  • Just adored this bay / beach! So quaint and secluded and although it was busy, it didn't feel overrun. Entrance fee of €4,50 keeps crowds away.  more »

  • The location is amazing and breathtaking, but it is privately owned (3.5 Euros entry fee) and you can't really visit anything since the main building has been converted into apartments for rent. Good for taking great pictures and do some snorkeling, but not to spend the day there.
  • Beautiful acces to the ocean. Entry fee 3.50€ (06.2017) The water is crystal clear and the view is amazing. Sun chairs are available and free of charge. Try it!
  • Basically a tourist trap, concrete beach with no special charm or provided services. You pay for nothing, disgusting toilettes and whatnot. You are better off going to the next beach called Mazzo di Sciacca.
  • Beach as any other beach, but with paid entrance. It is definitelly better to get panini and peroni instead than to pay 4e for water in the sea. Btw, no sand there, concrete and stone. Extremely rude staff. This place shall vanish from all guidebooks.
  • Beautiful place but nor worth buying a ticket for. I don't see why I should by a ticket for visiting a natural site like this. We got some nice pictures anyway. I wouldn't recommend this, at least not to buy a ticket for this.
