A fabulous coastal trail with little beaches along the way. Bit too chilly to swim in spring but the flowers along the way compensated. At times quite steep. Possible to walk there and back in 4 hours without any stops. Outstanding walk.

One of the most beautiful natural parks I have ever been to. The views are stunning, the hikes are just slightly challenging, the place is not too crowded. Bring water! Bring your own water as you will not want to trek back without it, nor will you want to cut your visit short because you forgot it.

This really is a beautiful area. They beaches aren't the best for swimming but the plants, flowers and whole ambiance is stunning. In March the scents of the flowers were incredible. The road leading to it is in a dreadful condition and we feared for the floor of our camper van on occasions but the car park was large and... More

too bad it is not possible to give more than 5 stars, it would definitely deserve more. A astonishing place

We visited Riserva by boat. It is the best way to explore it. To some beaches you just can not come by foot.

It's a very nice natural reserve with beautiful beaches. Not much infrastructure, but that also keeps it from being destroyed, I went in the beginning of the season, so it wasn't super crowded. But the beach is quite small, so I can see it being overloaded. Still it's a very impressive place.

The park is pedestrian only with hiking trails that run from the entrance, just west of Scopello, to San Vito lo Capo. It's an easy hike from one end to the other. The area along the trails is arid and is covered with palma nana tree, which short scrubby palm family trees. There are lots of different types of wild... More

We had heard good reports of Zingaro National Park & fancying a change of scene during our stay in C del G., . we caught the public-service bus which took us to the South Gate, noting that last bus leaves around 1700. We paid €5 pp to enter & were given a map / guide of the park. The bus... More

A great day trip. It costs 5 euros per person to enter the park. The reserve itself is quite a dry landscape, but still interesting with a beautiful walk along the cliffs. It takes about 2 hours from the Scopello to the San Vito Lo Capo end. Most people wear hiking shoes but we did it in flip flops! The... More
