Holiday homes and apartments near nature reserve Oasi di Vendicari in the southeast of Sicily

With its dunes, woodlands and large lagoon lakes, Vendicari has become the part-time or temporary home of more than 200 species of birds.  

With a bit of luck, you might discover flamingos, herons, cranes, storks and sometimes even African spoonbills. Of course the nature reserve is home also to other animals. From among the family of mammals you find rabbits, foxes and porcupines, from among the family of reptiles various species of colubrids and pond turtles.

Due to its ecological significance, Vendicari was declared a protected area as early as 1974.

Neverthelss is was thanks to the efforts of several environmental organizations that the plans for building a large holiday resort were discarded in 1983 and Vendicari was declared nature reserve in 1989.

For reasons of environmental protection, visitors are therefore not allowed to leave the designated hiking trails running through the reserve.

You may, however, take a refreshing swim in the sea at the gorgeous natural beaches. One of the most popular is Calamosche beach in the northern part of Vendicari.

However, in the area around Torre Vendicari, the ruins of a 15th century tower, and an old tuna factory, you also find extensive sandy beaches with crystal clear water.

In summer, you should choose the early morning or evening hours for your walk through the reserve, because it is very hot during the day and there is hardly any shade.
