Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro

The coast of this wonderful protected area, located near Trapani, is full of white pebble coves and is bathed by a very clear sea. Immersed in a wild nature, the bays can be reached through paths developing inside the protected area, which access is subject to charges. The parking area offers a rest area with bar. We recommend using trekking shoes, comfortable clothing and, above all, taking bottles of water and packed lunch. In summer it can get really hot and the coves will be more crowded, so it is better to go in June or September.
