Sicily’s first nature reserve is extremely important for the abundance of rare and endemic plants, local fauna and the spectacular Uzzo Grotto, one of the first human settlements in the area.

Best beaches I have seen. Best sunsets to watch from there. Pleasant stuff that will give you directions the moment you enter. It is terrain walking, so go in shoes.

We meant to take the north entrance after reading reviews on here but the coordinates on the website took us to the south entrance. What a hike! Wear trainers at least. 10 minutes to the toilets and museum, then another 10 to the first beach,...More

We were beginning to wonder a little about the reserve when we pulled into the very rough surfaced car park, but felt a little better when we reached the entrance. Kids go free so no problem there. We had a buggy with us for the...More

We spent two days on the beach at Zingaro. The water is perfectly clear, and refreshing. The 20 minute walk was pretty easy, the only caution is the stairs if it's wet. Sicily is amazing as a whole, but Zingaro is something very special.

Bit late to reply apologies. You do have to pay. Unsure of cost to enter. The walk to the beaches depends how fit you are. I'd say I am quite fit and wouldn't describe it as easy but totally doable. Remember, there are a... More
