Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro lies at the far end of the western coast of Sicily. As Sicily’s first nature reserve, it is a magnificent wild area with seven kilometers of spectacular coastline full of small coves with lovely beaches. The entire area has been protected from development and is still the way it was centuries ago, filled with hundreds of native plants and animals thriving in the rugged terrain backed by steep mountain slopes.
Capreria Beach is the first beach after the information hut and is snuggled in a cove, covered with smooth small pebbles and crystal clear water. There aren’t any facilities, but the snorkeling is spectacular - you can see all the way to the colorful fish on the seabed. There are a number of small coves and caves near the beach, all of which are easy to explore through a network of trails.
