The Vendicari Reserve


The Vendicari Reserve

If you have a few extra days to spend discovering the area around Siracusa, we recommend a visit to the Vendicari Reserve, a wonderful natural oasis in the Siracusa province, halfway between Noto and Pachino.
This place, reminiscent of far-off times is a refuge for thousands of migratory birds, herons, swans, flamingos, cormorants and lots of others who come here to nest each year in the Reserve’s brackish swamps. Other species use the Reserve as a kind of hotel for the winter period: a relaxing break, to get their energy back before heading for the warm African coastal areas.
There is one of the wildest, uncontaminated beaches on the whole island inside the Vendicari Reserve: a thin strip of golden sand bordered on one side by the colorful Mediterranean scrub and on the other side by crystal clear waters. The salt-marshes, the Torre Sveva tower and the ruins of the old tuna-fish factory are next tot eh beach
A network of paths was set up in 1989 to allow visitors to reach the Reserve’s most interesting areas. We recommend you leave Ragusa in the early morning to reach the Reserve at a suitable time: you will be able to see the greatest number of bird species! Remember to bring binoculars and a swimming costume with you.
Visiting the Vendicari Reserve can be a good opportunity to discover Noto, one of the most significant Sicilian Baroque-style towns The ideal thing to do would be to spend the whole day at the Reserve and then go on to Noto at sunset, just in time to see the play of light and shadows on the Baroque facades of churches and palaces and to try a few of the typical local dishes in a characteristic restaurant. If you stay in one of the several hotels in Noto, you will be able to spend the next day visiting this beautiful, fascinating town.
