The Zingaro Reserve extends in an area of 1650 hectares, with a coast zone of about 7 Kilometers, formed of a rocky coast Mesozoic limestone with numerous creeks and characterized by overhanging cliffs that from a maximum height of 913 meters (Monte Speziale) go swiftly down to the sea.
The itineraries are vary and many. Following the system of signs and being careful in reading the map, everyone can choose the most suitable itinerary.
From Castellammare del Golfo continue on Strada Statale 187 direction Trapani. In about 4 Km follow the road sign for Scopello until arriving at the coast. Once you arrive in Guidaloca stone beach (Very popular beach), follow the road sign to Tonnara di Scopello (The old tuna fishery, that now is a luxury B&B) in the area you can admire the magnificent cliffs (the view from the road is beautiful), it’s a place chosen by many film production companies to shoot movie scenes.
But we do not recommend you to access to the area, you have to pay, normally is very crowded and often make you wait long before you go.
