    Visit marred by algae. On the advice of the locals, we arrive at the reserve very early in the morning. Ample parking in a field. From the car park there will be 10 minutes of walking into the oasis surrounded by flamingos and other birds. The beach should be potentially great. Too bad it was completely covered with a layer of 30 cm of seaweed poseidonia chebla made it unlivable. We will return one more year

    I visited this site to see and swim in the beach close to the trap and the tower. To get to the beach I had to walk about 15 minutes after leaving your car in the free parking. Pleasant walk even because the trail is quite cool even in August thanks to the vegetation. I found a nice beach and a sandy little crowded SIN or maybe it's a good thing that the most beautiful part of the beach is reserved for turtle laying eggs. The only flaw the mattress of seaweed that has formed on the shore from which you get rid only after a 5/6 Advanced meters in the sea.

    Absolutely positive experience that I recommend to all, to be faced with natural spirit and maybe having properly documented on the history of the reserve and ecological objectives that the same aims. The beaches offer the opportunity to observe the banks of Posidonia that protect from erosion the beach itself and the healthiness of the coastal marine environment. The dry season but due to the foul-smelling marshlands gave us the presence of Egrets. The shacks are excellent viewpoints, equip yourself with suitable lenses. The cliff turned out to be a real treasure trove of life, algae and fish that I hadn't seen for a long time except in a Mediterranean Marine Aquarium. The pools are open a nursery for shrimp. For snorkeling, where permitted, I advise swimming shoes to protect your feet and not fins to avoid damaging algae and scare the fish that have proved particularly intrigued. Very beautiful colors of the land of the cliff and stone walls. Recommended sneakers, hat and sunscreen

    Was "greeted" by an aggressive guy who was apparently helping people park their cars. He didn't seem to work there though and very rudely insisted on charging people to "protect" their cars. We wondered around there for a while but couldn't really enjoy it after this experience and especially with cases in the car. We left after a very short time. The park really should do something about this kind of thing.

    Very nice natural reserve, good parking facilities. Nature is beautiful, nice paths along the sea shore. The callamosche beach was disappointing, very crowded and water weren't clean. I would go to another beach.

    A good coastal path & opportunities for paddling/snorkelling. Also for birdwatching at certain times of the year. Take a good sunshade umbrella & suncream!

    Great beach with shallow water. Long around 15 minute walk with 3€ for the parking could have been better.

    Very beautiful setting for a day at the beach.
