We came here in early October to go for a swim. This was on the advice of the locals who felt it was better than Mondello although rocky. We took a Taxi to near the entrance, paid the fee and then tried to find somewhere nice to swim. We found several private beaches and clubs, a marina, car parks, alot of concrete, and a tiny bit of coast with high rocks. There were no maps or signposting so after walking around for an hour we left. Perhaps we should have rented bikes or got more detailed instructions but I cannot understand why anybody would want to go here.

The Riserva starts just west of Mondello. Follow the winding main roads and you'll find it easily. There are beautiful places to snorkel and swim all long the shore, both before and especially after the small marina. There is not a lot of flat space for towels, but the water quality and picturesque coves more than make up for it. If you want a more peaceful experience, go on a weekday. For the real gem of the Riserva follow the small roads all the way to the bunker, then take the path around the bend. Under soaring cliffs you'll find an amazing place to swim. There is a nude area, with "FKK" and "Nudismo" and such painted on the rocks. It has the most wonderful spot to access the water! You have to go a bit, you'll think you've missed it but then suddenly you'll see it from the now faint trail. A sea-level shelf leads to 4 meter deep water, just like a swimming pool, with lots of fish around. Not everyone is nude (guys mostly), and you have to be OK with seeing the human body, but the location is just splendid. It's quiet and people are not loud and obnoxious. This is what the Mediterranean is supposed to be, not the noisy, murky overpopulated Mondello mess. Enjoy!

It's 50 Eurocents to enter for pedestrians

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 Gallo make it well worth the effort. Take some water and eatables - there is nothing remotely commercial here.

We visited this please having read the reviews on trip advisor and really enjoyed the walk in from The centre of Mondello all the way to the lighthouse (and beyond to the cove) taking in this beautiful reserve. Things you can expect: a 1 Euro entry fee from two chaps sat on plastic chairs on entry to the reserve, a few goats with bells on, an amazing yacht club, private beaches, a light house and private cove (this was much further round and believe this is a naturist beach though you’d have to be super keen to get your kit off as it was a challenging walk to find the cove let alone get down it to the beautiful turquoise pools for a skinny dip!) . We saw lots of wildlife and the most beautiful view out to sea. Peaceful and tranquil; a great opportunity to get back to nature after a few days of the local hustle and bustle!

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 very early to allow walking time. Parking is 5 Euros and entrance costs to the park are reasonable. We didn't stay as long and we wanted to because of the crowds. Water is crystal clear for swimming.

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.

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, especially on the weekend.

Not obvious to find but it's worthy. The reserve is on the north end of Mondello, the street leads to the Torre hotel and beyond that, there is a road that leads to a yatch club at the foot of impressive rocky cliffs. That's the start of the reserve. The concrete path goes all around the point, and remains at the bottom of the cliffs, climbing a little up to a lighthouse. Then a path continues a bit to end at the most north-western point of Sicily. About 1 hour walk there from the start. Wonderful views of the sea/bay of Mondello and of Palermo in the distance.

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.
