Much of this reserve was fences off -- and what was open was rather scruffy. We wanted to walk and swim and managed both only to a very limited extend. A few birds - a couple of storks egrets and flamingos.. and some very sea-weed...More

This beach on the Reserve came highly recommended. After driving for a few miles on a dodgy unpaved road, we parked and walked a few hundred meters to the beach. Spectacular! Only thing is that it is a nudist beach. Very few had their costumes...More

We decided to drive there from Taormina to see the nature and watch some birds. But unfortunately there was nothing special to see. The nature is not impressive and there are really less birds especially no flamingos.

As you'll see there are vast areas of Sicily that are dry and arid with not to much plant life going on. Off course there are vineyards and olive groves. The Vendicari nature reserve is much more naturalistic. As well as being a quiet area...More
