4.5/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Great views and lovely coves to swim in the warm blue sea, quite a bit of up and down so wear sensible shoes to walk in. 
  • We saw the reserve on the side maybe more beautiful and comfortable: traveling by sea on a raft. Thanks to this we could visit all coves and let us bathe. The water is nice although (despite the calm sea d the sea not crowded) not so clear as in other parts of Sicily. Swimming in the middle of the fish, perfect for those who like to swim because the water is deep. I wonder though whether it is worthwhile visit as authentically: walking in the reserve. Probably in the middle of summer, in the blazing sun, walk for a few kilometers without shadow, then venture out for some steep road every time you want to get to a beach, it is not the most relaxing experience.

  • A beautiful place, but for contemplation of this beauty to overcome the large number of climbs and descents. Ticket price: 5 euro per person, parking. On the road 7 beaches located in bays and a couple of museums and shop with local products. Beaches are all beautiful and all you can swim. We passed only 3 and the first to swim the most suitable. Need good shoes and patience.
