You will need a car to get here and the journey is through very small lanes in low lying swampy land. Parking at the dead end is difficult. There is some parking on the road but you will probably end up paying €3-4 at one...More

We walked along most of the coastline of this reserve and found it really beautiful. The path was well looked after and there was a lot to see.

Drove to the end of the road through narrow gaps hopeful of some disabled parking, to no avail. Parked in the ample pay parking area and pushed wheelchair to park entrance. The paths in the reserve were crazy paving and too bumpy for my wife,...More

Do not heed those who grumble about the "algae" - what you actually find on the beach are simply the rests of a seagrass ("Poseidonia Oceanica") that covers the sea bed. Complaining about it is like complaining about dead plants in a forest! This is...More

Amazing view, crystal clear water. Not too crowded. Well preserved. Loved it. Access is not so complicated as guides tend to say. You really need some protection against the sun and water as there is no one selling anything around the beach

If it's beach time you're after, this seemed an average spot for us. The scenery is of course gorgeous and water is refreshing, however the primary beach from the parking is full of olive tree leaves that will stick to wet legs horribly. If you...More

Even though it's hot in July, it's still worth a visit if one is eager to watch flamingoes. There's a flock of about forty flamingoes. There are hundreds of them over here every winter. I was surprised to see this flock still here in July.

Visited the reserve and given it as June was not surprised that thee were no pasage migrants or rarities but was peeved that much of the reserve was fenced off- can't see how the paths went near turtle egg laying areas. Very few species and...More

The reserve is used by a lot of families and it felt very safe for walking. Signs could be more clearer. Spotted some excellent bird life.

San Lorenzo is okay but I think the other entrances are better and both have adequate parking. The northern entrance (spiaggia Eloro) is down some narrow, rough roads but takes you onto a lovely long beach, and not far to... More
