Breath taking, the water was so clear. We only wished we were more prepared with all having taking swimwear and planned to have more time to hike further along, as well as carried a rucksack with food and more water. Not to be rushed.

Coming in from the south entrance at Scopello, we had decided to take the "easy path" along the coast, for maybe 5 km, then return on the "medio" (intermediate) path. We were thinking less than 3 hours, but it was actually more than 4 hours....More

Beautiful day with the family: trecking through beautiful fauna and enjoying the crystal clear water and snorkeling with pretty many fishes

Well worth the visit. A choice of trails along sea-cliffs, through wide range of lush coastal vegetation, with great views of the rocky outcrops and little bays in which it take a swim.

Combination of a hike and beaches, if you're a nature lover, you have to visit! We went on a cloudy day, which was perfect, less people and easier to walk. The sea down there is simply amazing! I wish I could live there.

Easy to parking no charges. 5 euros to enter Riserva- minimal amenities- take your own food and drinks- quite a trek would recommend walking shoes. Beautiful bay for a swim, but gets really busy. But very scenic and worth the trek.

The place is absolutely amazing, with beautiful scenery and lovely sea and beaches. Unfortunately though, it is packed with wasps which makes it impossible to enjoy. We went in (5 euro ticket) only to have a quick swim in the sea and flee after being...More

We visited in October 2016 before the fire but I can say that the weather was beautiful and waters were Great. Also not as crowded as mid summer.

I would suggest that renting a car is the way to go in Sicily. You take your own pace, enjoy the trip. To visit Zingaro Reserve one option is to get to Castellamare Del Golfo (not sure whether there is a bus lne, Sorry) and... More
