Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro, Castellammare del Golfo

4.6
#1 of 579 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.

  • The Zingaro is truly indescribable, you have to go for yourself! The scenery is magnificent and the bays water transparency unimaginable. The Council, for those who can, and if you go in the summer, is to make the sacrifice to get up at dawn and be the reserve opening then at 07.00. Not only do you get access to the nearest car parks, but you'll do the trail in absolute solitude, accompanied only by the noise of the sea and wind and Sun that rises slowly, as well as being able to walk without the Sun peak over the head. Advice, whether it comes from San Vito from Scopello, you arrive at the bottom of the path (a constant pitch and took 1.40 07.00 h to reach Scopello in Cala Tonnarella dell'uzzo) and then turning back stopping in various bays. We entered at 07.00 and went off the reservation at 13.30, stopping back at almost all coves for swimming. Essential sport shoes or hiking boots and booties for the rocks, must bring a good supply of water in your backpack (we brought two liters per head and it took), hats and good sunscreen, long-sleeved shirts also recommended to guard against the Sun. Not suitable for children, people with disabilities or elderly since rouser. Worth it though!
