Scopello

The beach of Scopello (Faraglioni di Scopello), located near Trapani, is a small bay of clear sand and rocks, with a deep and crystalline sea. Since the access to this beach is private, you have to buy a ticket. Inside there is a parking area and a bar/restaurant. In the high season it gets quite crowded, so it is better to go there in the early or late summer to enjoy this splendid cove.

Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro

The coast of this wonderful protected area, located near Trapani, is full of white pebble coves and is bathed by a very clear sea. Immersed in wild nature, the bays can be reached along paths through the protected area, with an entrance charge. The parking area offers a rest area with bar. We recommend using trekking shoes, comfortable clothing and, above all, taking bottles of water and a packed lunch. In summer it can get really hot and the coves will be more crowded, so it is better to go in June or September.

Cala Azzurra is made up of two beaches with very fine sand of a very light color, almost white, separated by a group of rocks.
