I had an absolutely lovely 2 week roundtrip in Sicily and my only negative experience was visiting this Tonnara. I arrived out-of-season, mid-March, when the main parking lot (about 100 meter from the entrance) was closed. I drove to the the site and as I saw no prohibiting sign, drove the car down to the cashier's office where I saw... More

At some point this place would have been a best kept secret in the area. Unfortunately someone let slip. This beauty spot is worth seeing but isn't too friendly on the wallet. You'll need to pay for parking and for entrance which all adds up to around €10 per person. As you go down to the seafront you'll try and... More

Crystal clear waters makes this a fantastic spot for a morning of snorkelling. We came prepared with our swimming suits on under our clothes and our snorkels, masks and fins! Tempted to return tomorrow to spend our last morning here snorkelling before our evening flight home.

I dreamt of coming here...it was one of the reasons I wanted to go to Sicily, to sit and be in this poetic, historic place. Much to my surprise and dismay, I was greeted at the top of the hill by a gate and an entrance fee .. I couldn't believe it. The Tonnara is now private property and if... More

One of the places I 'had' to visit was the Tonnara di Scopello. I had seen pictures; I imagined myself there; it looked so poetic and wonderful. But now there is a gate at the top of the hill, it costs money to enter, and when you get there, you are greeted with signs that say "no pictures, no videos,... More

It sounds idyllic in the guide book but there is really nothing much there when you've paid 5 euros to park the car & then 3 euros to get in to what is a small swimming area but no restaurant, no cafe / bar only some vending machines. We liked it much better when we saw it from our boat... More

We were dismayed to unpack at Zingaro on the Scopello side only to be told it was closed for the day due to wind/fire. Big bummer. So we came here and had a great day. great water,scenery, swimming, snorkling, people watching. We brought lunch from town; they do have vending machines for a pop or espresso. It was terrific. So...

We paid 1 Euro for parking to walk down to this beauty spot, as recommended in our guide book. Then found we had to pay another 3 Euros each to enter! It is a stunning setting, but nothing to do except admire the scenery. We also thought there might be a small museum about the tuna fishing industry. We thought... More

We were a bit surprised that you have to pay even on foot as there is no parking:3 Euros each was quite a lot for a couple of hours.The setting is amazing but there were hardly any loungers left in the sun and there is no actual beach. But it was an experience! Oh,and there is no cafe or bar-only... More

I really can not understand why they ask money for that place. Yes it looks nice from the photos, not a bad view if you are there, but that's all. We arrived around 7 pm and still entrance fee for a 20 minutes visit... Can not imagine how crowded it in summer. A concentrate place to lie your towels, max.... More
