Zingaro is struggling to keep relevant with respect to the great amount of visitors travelling through here. Visited a week ago we were disappointed to see that both the middle elevation and high elevation trails were offbounds meaning that circular / more demanding routes were...More

Huge natural place, really rocky, with a few beaches and great trails, even for kids (with some parental help). Beaches were not so lovely like in other comments but that's the price for spending holidays in August. There were unfriendly gusty waves, unappealing, and small...More

Great place if you like trekking . It is sea side and lots of flora and fauna. It is not so easy to walk, rocky with lots of natural steps and steep hills to the beaches.

I think that we expected a bit too much after reading all those reviews or maybe August isn't the right time to visit Zingaro...it is true that the place is beautiful but during the trek we felt more like we were walking for a few...More

Stunning! You must visit this Nature Reserve. 5 euro each person to get in. Children are free. A truly memorable experience if you like crystal blue waters with little fish swimming next to you. We loved it here. It was a very hot day so...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
