This a lovely nature reserve which we explored during our stay at Agriturismo Pantanelli di Vendicari. There is a lovely walk along the coast where you can take advantage of some beautiful sandy beaches. There was not a lot of wildlife evident in May/June but...More

I strongly recommend to visit riserva di Vendicari for a nice swim and a walk around the natural reserve. The old tuna manufacturing plant that lies on the north side of the beach looks like a Greek temple sinking in the sea. Enjoy in all...More
