The Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro is the island's first natural preserve, complete with more than 650 species of plants, as well as animals that range from eagles to weasels. Hiking is the main activity, but you can also climb down to the "blue-green" waters of some "beautiful beach," according to one TripAdvisor user.
Another TripAdvisor user who calls this reserve "spectacular & beautiful" offers future travelers some advice: "I would suggest that for walking, the terrain is quite challenging unless you are a serious hiker/walker. … We did not see any [facilities] within the park whatsoever (toilets or places to buy or drink water) so this could have been a major problem."
You should wear a sturdy pair of comfortable shoes, bring with you adequate water and food, and also bring some sunscreen since the hiking paths are not heavily shaded. Adult tickets to the reserve cost €3 EUR (or a little more than $4 USD). For more information, visit the website.
