Stop by the Riserva dello Zingaro during your holiday in Sicily. The Zingaro coast along the splendid the Mediterranean sea‚ is one of the very few in Sicily without a busy coastal road and was the first to become a natural reserve area in Sicily.
Not only a Marine Protect Area but also a terrestrial nature reserve.
The Nature Reserve extends in the Western part of the Gulf of Castellammare‚ in the peninsula of San Vito lo Capo which overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea between Castellammare del Golfo and Trapani.
Discover the enchanting coves!
The Zingaro terrestrial reserve is very closely linked to the sea. The path through the natural reserve leads to various small idyllical pebbly coves and clear turquoise waters. Coming from the south side of Scopello and going north‚ the coves are called Cala della Capreria‚ Cala del Varo (accessible by sea)‚ Cala della Disa or Zingaro‚ Cala Beretta‚ Cala Marinella and Cala Torre dell’Uzzo whose limestone substrate enhances the transparency of water just like a tropical environment. The coastal profile is an alternation of high rock walls that sink into the blue and inlets gently sloping towards the sea. A divine place you can enjoy and admire during your holiday in Sicily.
