The natural reserve of the "Zingaro" stretches between Scopello and S.Vito lo Capo.
The imposing mountains, the deep indentations and the wide valley that look out towards the sea, constitute the 1600 hectares of uncontaminated nature of the reserve.
Headlands, cliffs, coves, little white-pebbles beaches and caves succeed in quick succession for 7 km along the coast, which is considered to be of great scientific and environmental interest.
According to a regional law work was started in 1981 and it is looked after by the Regione Sicilia.
This reserve was the first protected area of the island and is one of the few oases still intact and protected from haphazard construction.
