We have not even known that there were a natural reserve in that place, we have just walked through the beach in Mondello and arrived there. There were any indication about a natural reserve. The views vere nice, but the nudist beach is really bad placed : everobody pass by these roads and look at nude people without any discretion.

This place is amazing. Crystal clear water, quiet and is just a great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. A must go if you're in Mondello/Palermo. Only negative is that it's really hard to get back from if catching public transport because of the damn bus loop.

We explored Capo Gallo on foot, walking from Mondello near the shore of the sea. We came there close to the sunset time, so the local people (who took a few eurocents from us for entrance) gave us a piece of advise to go to the old lighthouse at the very end of the cape. We went according to their... More

Well 20 minutes walk and you are in paradise... Maybe bit to crowdy (I walked only to the first beach) and not sandy (full of rocks) but definitely worth to go there and have a few relaxing hours. I will go there again!

Approach from the east side, and the first beach is a 20 minute walk which gets very crowded. Worth going on to the next beach, so pack lots of water, food and wear good walking shoes or boots. Take snorkeling stuff as there are accessible coves and rocky areas to explore. If possible, try to arrive at the park entrance... More

Beautiful spot, crystal clear water, much quieter than Mondello. However, it must be said it isn't a place to put a towel down and relax as there are mainly rocks and flat sandy areas are few and far between. Despite it's beauty and short walk (20 minutes) from Mondello, it's perhaps not the isolated paradise as other reviews have described,... More

A local friend introduced me to this incredible bathing spot not far from the crowded Mondello Beach. Despite being a weekend, there were only a handful of people when I went to this clothing-optional place which made it perfect. You need to be reasonably fit to walk along ledges and bends to get here but the natural beauty of Capo... More
