Its clear waters extraordinary delight the bathroom with a wonderful view of the rocky seabed rich underwater vegetation.

Integral Reserve Zingaro

The first kind of integral Nature Reserve in Sicily, established the Zingaro Nature Reserve, able to save a seven kilometers of beautiful linear coastline and nearly 1,700 acres of unspoiled nature.
The reserve can be visited only on foot: nothing should disturb the forty species of birds that nest here (including Bonelli's eagles, buzzards, red kites, kestrels) and the endemic fauna. Many plants that grow here are rare and characteristic of the area, the trees that live on the slopes of hills that fall within the reserve are carob trees, olive trees, ash, some cork trees, plants and more frequent euphorbia lentrisco.

The Reserve of Zingaro is famous for its deep blue sea, its quiet coves and protected by steep cliffs where the hawk circling in search of prey, for its clear waters rich in fish and underwater caves. But not only that. The reserves include several peaks that reach a maximum height of about a thousand meters, and if near the coast have been the testimony of the life of eight thousand years ago - Uzzo cave - inside are still visible remains of a peasant much more recent, it deserves to be remembered.
