Once arrived you pay to park the car, rest is free. we saw the old tna factory which was nice and old. None of us had seen wild flamingoes before, and when we finally did was quite thrilling, also egrets, herons and stonechat. satisfied!

This is not a place where you can sip a drink and enjoy the view. This is where you can sit and watch the blurry horizon undisturbed and listen to the ocean (not very inviting though with the lava black color waves). Be prepared to...More

This beach on the Reserve came highly recommended. After driving for a few miles on a dodgy unpaved road, we parked and walked a few hundred meters to the beach. Spectacular! Only thing is that it is a nudist beach. Very few had their costumes...More

We went to Vendicari in early January when the weather in Sicily was terrible but the day we were at the reserve it was sunny and not too cold. The lack of car park at the entrance must cause problems. Also the unmarked wooden shed...More

We visited the reserve in November so were not expecting to go swimming. Our purpose was to have a pleasant walk and try to spot some flamingos. We found the old tuna processing plant, long since deserted and enjoyed a pleasant walk along the footpath....More
