Zingaro is Paradise
On the eastern side of Sicily, not too far from Palermo, is a lovely national seashore untouched and out of the way. Zingaro is a preserve that will have nature enthusiasts singing its praises. The waters are pristine, the beaches and cliffs are not too crowded in summer (although weekends can be pretty busy) and there are unlimited hiking trails. Every inch of the preserve is covered in wildflowers and protected plants. For the diving enthusiasts, there are reefs and coves to explore. One day is not enough to appreciate Zingaro-you will want to come back again and again.
