Sailing Boat Excursion
Tonnara of Scopello
Excursion on a sailing boat to the Zingaro reserve
In the stretch of coast from San Vito Lo Capo to Castellammare del Golfo, 7 kilometers of uncontaminated nature: la Zingaro Nature Reserve, one of the most famous in Italy;
The ancient Greeks and the Latins called it Cetaria due to the abundance of tuna fish found in its waters.
The first beach you come across when entering from the north side is the largest in the Zingaro Nature Reserve and also the busiest in summer. The Tonnarella dell'Uzzo, to follow: Cala Torre dell'Uzzo, Cala Marinella, Cala Beretta, Cala della Disa, Cala del Varo and Cala della Capreria, very close to Scopello.
The Tonnara di Scopello, with its Faraglioni, is the main attraction of the coast, especially at sunset!
Telling the beauty of the Zingaro Nature Reserve is not easy.
Small bays paved with white pebbles, a sea that is tinged with unexpected shades of green and blue during the day, sharp rocks that separate the different beaches, Mediterranean scrub that seems to dive into the sea and ancient farmhouses built on the rock.
A mix of nature and the discreet presence of man.
The coves follow one another mingling with incomparable scents and colors, showing everything
Admiring the Zingaro Nature Reserve from the sea is an exciting experience because it allows you to grasp the majesty of the place with a single glance. The high peaks of the Zingaro slope down to the sea, the green of the Mediterranean maquis mixes with the red of the rocks and plunges into the blue of its splendid waters.
The idea of a boat trip is excellent.
You can rent a dinghy and enjoy the day independently, or participate in aboat excursion booking one with daily departure from San Vito Lo Capo.
