Riserva naturale dello zingaro stretches along some seven kilometers of unspoilt coastline of the Gulf of Castellammare and its mountain chain, the setting of steep cliffs and little bays. The sharp line of Dolomitic calcareous rocks which form the Reserve extends, in the western part, from the Gulf of Castellammare, along the eastern side of Capo San Vito peninsula that is on the Tirreno sea between Castellammare del Golfo and Trapani.The pebbly little coves, seen from the sea seem to have the shape of brighter niches sunken in the Dolomitic slopes which coming from the south part of Scopello and going to the north part get the name of Cala della Capreria, Cala del Varo (reachable from the sea), Cala della Disa or Zingaro, Cala Beretta, Cala Marinella, Cala Torre dell’Uzzo,and Tonnarella dell’Uzzo.The reserve has a complex network of paths, shelters, water taps, picnic areas, museums, carpark, and other amenities; there are no roads and it can only be visited on foot. The wonderful beaches, pebbled and lapped by the clear blue sea, can be reached along various rather steep paths. This walk has modest challenges but the rewards are many and varied. Spring flowers on display, sweeping views, coves with delightful beaches and quirky museums along way. Allow a leisurely 5 hours, return from end to end.Wild nature, fabulous scenery, blue sea and pristine sand: the beaches and coves that characterize the Reserve are jewels set among natural caves, the oases of peace that, from north to south, embellish this pearl of beautiful Sicily. It’s just a paradise! You can swimming with fish and enjoy the nature.
