Guided tour Vendicari and Marzamemi nature reserve

That Sicily is a magnificent island, full of colors and flavors, this is now more than known. What maybe, however, not everyone knows is that there is a wonderful nature reserve in Sicily which is the Wildlife Oasis of Vendicari.

Let’s find out all the useful information to participate in a guided tour to discover Vendicari – Marzamemi

Vendicari-Marzamemi Wildlife Oasis: a protected natural area waiting to be discovered
The Vendicari Wildlife Oasis Oriented Nature Reserve is located in Sicily, a few steps from Syracuse, exactly between Noto and Marzamemi.

It is a real corner of paradise that has still remained untouched. Those who go to Sicily to spend a holiday cannot avoid visiting this almost unknown place, which extends for 15,000 hectares on the crystal clear sea of ​​the Sicilian island.

The natural ecosystem of the Vendicari Faunistic Oasis that can be discovered within this reserve is something extraordinary that takes your breath away when you look at it. In addition to the very long golden beaches and the very rich vegetation that flows into the scenography of the crystalline waters, there is such a varied and rich fauna that one will be amazed. In summer it is often a place for sea turtles to hatch their eggs.

In the same habitat live flamingos, herons, mute swans, mallards, wild geese, herring gulls, loggerhead turtles, shelducks and many other animal species whose beauty enchants. Vegetation also abounds, both on the sandy and rocky stretches. You can find myrtle, sea fennel, thorny chicory, limonium syracusanum, thyme, iris and, among others, many species of orchids.
