This is a breathtaking journey! The hike down takes about an hour and it is steep so it is not for everyone. Parts of the climb are slippery as you are at times crossing wet rocks so wear appropriate footwear. At the bottom is an...More

Long walk down be very careful you must wear good walking shoes and be very careful at the bottom as it is quite slippery in places. My partner fell and cut his head quite badly. Lizards and beautiful butterflies as you walk down.

The easiest way to get to this cayon is by RT4, from Avola to Avola Antica. The road is steep and curving but good enough for cars and bycicles. After Avola Antica it is another 3-4 km, follow Cava Grande signs. Leave the car at...More

Beautiful lagoons/ lakes at the bottom of a gorge. Stunning clear water. A great walk down amongst wildflowers and beautiful scenery. The walk back up is not for the faint hearted but great for a bit of exercise!

Only for good walkers. Tiring but Worth it...Access is forbidden yet there is parrking for 3 euros because everyone goes to the lakes and forgets about the fact it is forbidden, and parking is free down the road!

Cava Grande is not easy to find: a lack of sign made it quite hard to find the place, but once you find it, it is so worth the trip. A beautiful hike (easy) in nature, in well-defined paths (a bit too "human-made"), with stunning...More

A very hectic walk to the very bottom and a very tough walk back up ! However, it was all worth it even jumping into the freezing water.

Lovely spot to get some peace & quiet. Nature reserve is tranquil. Walk down OK, uphill strenuous. Small cafe at top with shaded seating area & clean toilets. Road up very picturesque - good view point halfway. Take the SP route to pazzolo arecia after-...More

How to go without knowing how to drive? We are two self travelers, neither of us have a driver license. If there are possible ways to go car sharing or hitchhike or maybe rent a car with a driver to drop us and pick us later?
