Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro, Castellammare del Golfo

4.5
#1 of 1,245 in Wildlife in Italy
Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro, a nature preserve with beaches, mountains, and steep cliffs, stretches along nearly 7 km (4.3 mi) of unspoiled coastline. Walk along one of the well-maintained footpaths and admire the flora and fauna. Try to spot one of the bright green lizards lazing on a rock. Cool off with a dip in the sea at one of the secluded coves. Pack a meal for one of picnic areas, because the preserve has no shops or cafes. Cars aren't allowed beyond the parking lot, so wear comfortable shoes.

  • A really very nice "place." Beautiful nature, not crowded and incredibly beautiful bays where you can swim and relax. You should definitely take the detour here and take the time.

  • The coastal hiking trail is great and also worth the entrance fee of 5 euros. But beware: Do not start in Scopello (Tourikaff) and also do not park at the Tonnara (Nepp and far too far away). Is rather poorly described in the guidebooks. There is free parking just before the entrance of the reserve. Very nice is also about halfway through and slightly off the ground the cottage of Massimo, which offers melons for little money, has greeted everyone with handshake and created a small paradise.
