#1 of 16 in Things to do in Avola
Considered by locals to be the Grand Canyon of Sicily, Cavagrande del Cassibile is a nature reserve surrounding a large canyon. Perfect for nature-lovers, hikers, or those who enjoy extreme sports, this reserve offers something for everyone. Admire the scenery from the road, or venture onto one of the many paths to get closer to the wildlife, waterfalls, and flora of the park. During the summer, head down to the many freshwater pools that line the bottom of the canyon and cool down in the crisp water. If it's your first visit, we suggest the Scala Cruci pathway, an easier option that doesn't sacrifice great views.

  • One of the most beautiful natural reserves of Sicily, for nature lovers is the top, pristine lakes where waiting downstream soaking; There is quite a lot of walking but worth it, I recommend not to gain weight of luggage, tablecloth, water bottle and via; happy hiking!!!

  • If you are adventurous you can not go to cavagrande Lakes! It starts with an abundant steep and bumpy road before reaching into the Valley the two main Lakes! The view is breathtaking and the landscape surrounded by nature, between waterfalls and streams of clear water and fresh! Everything worth for ascending (very hard and quite steep for those who nn accustomed) recommend comfortable shoes or hiking boots even! After the climb we can refresh yourself in the bar/restaurant located on them!

  • I have visited the lakes from Avola. The road is quite easy to find, there are parking fees 3 euro all day. When I leave the car to get to the Lakes walk back is quite tiring for the hot and crabs that went out that day. There is a bar restaurant
