ZingaroLA RISERVA DELLO ZINGARO\ THE PARK OF THE GITANE - Sailing westwards, at a few hours from the harbour of Palermo, we plough in the uncontaminated waters of the Park of the Zingaro, Oriented Natural Reserve, which extends in the territory of two communes: St. Vito Lo Capo and Castellammare del Golfo; both the villages offer copious attractions, a good typical kitchen and so much cordiality. As soon as we set sail from Castellamare, overcoming the cape called “Le Porte”; we see in front of us the wonderful shore of Guidaloca: here we have to stop by force!!! Going on sailing westwards, after a few miles, we perceive the Scopello’s Rocks, with the homonym Tonnara, theatre of many cinematographic sets. Here too a bath is compulsory or better a dive. Going on, it comes to us another greedy opportunity to make two fascinating underwater excursions: the wreck of the "Capua", a barge self-sunk during the II° world war and the cave of the Ficarella with walls full of crayfishes. Keeping on sailing toward west, overcome the Tower of the "Impiso", we find us in the roadstead of Calampiso, out of which it will be possible to dive on the ''Kent'' or Nave dei COrani\Ship of the Korans; this diving is more difficult, recommended to the most experts because it foresees a descent of more than 40 m on a great Lebanese Freighter sunk in ´74 carrying the sacred Islamic writings. We finally point us towards S. Vito lo Capo, laughing sea town with a coral beach, rich in shops, bazaar, ice-cream shops and restaurants. The evening is enlivened and reserves us beautiful surprises.
