Not obvious to find but it's worthy. The reserve is on the north end of Mondello, the street leads to the Torre hotel and beyond that, there is a road that leads to a yatch club at the foot of impressive rocky cliffs.

The road to the lighthouse (Faro) is only 2 km long but it gives you a chance to see the wildlife of the island. Feel the heat of the day, listen to the goats voices and their bells ringing and enjoy the changable beauty of the mountain -on one side and the sea - on the other side. When the... More

The Nature Reserve is a short walk from the main piazza in Mondello. It is quiet, has a beautiful view, but is quite windy. There are several private areas that rent out chairs by the day. We just walked down the rocks to the water and enjoyed the moment.

Really nice beach, as we don't like sandy beaches. Good views for snorkelling. We really enjoyed this beach also because it was way more quiet than sandy beaches.

A magical place where many people go to get married. The beautiful sea that surrounds the area coupled with ragged cliffs and warm breeze makes it a lovely location for a picnic or a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Palermo.
