Lo Zingaro occupies a nearly-empty stretch of Sicilian coastline, where spectacular mountainsides meet the sea. You'll get magnificent views along a safe, well-marked (and well-trodden) trail that, while rolling, don't gain much elevation from the sea. Along the trail, a few remnants of the old...More

Very nice views. The beach was a bit crowded, and there were too many bees. Fun drive to get there though!

What a beautiful place, words of advice, go very early as you will be parking on the road and you may be 2 km from entrance, wear runners, the ground is uneven and there are lots of stones. Make sure you have plenty of water....More
