Comfortable shoes and equipment advisable. From San Vito LaCapo to Scopello It is about 7km Amazing views along the coastal path and many beautiful creeks. Some pretty hard climbs and many small museums along the way. Might be busy in the weekend.

On the first warm morning of trip to Italy undertook a short hike in this natural haven. Easy walk for the non adventurous with amazing ocean vistas on one side and dramatic mountain cliffs on the other. Worth a visit.

Huge natural place, really rocky, with a few beaches and great trails, even for kids (with some parental help). Beaches were not so lovely like in other comments but that's the price for spending holidays in August. There were unfriendly gusty waves, unappealing, and small...More

We visited in October 2016 before the fire but I can say that the weather was beautiful and waters were Great. Also not as crowded as mid summer.
