It`s a long walk down and especially up. So be very good prepared, put on some mountain shoes, protect youself against the sun and bring enough food and water!! It is al worth it!! Once you get down in the canyon it is Paradise!!

Amazing natural pools in the middle of a spectacular canyon full of vegetation. After 30 minutes walking down from above the mountain to the canyon you reach the amazing pools. You can enjoy the fresh but not cold water or just relax on the rocks.

Take some good shoes, a day-pack, water (essential) and this walk will reward you with some of Sicily's best natural gems.

Amazing and relaxing view. It was worth the effort an almost one hour walking down the mountain. When you are sweaty after walking down the mountain, just jump on the water and get freshen up.

Although it is fairly crowded in Summer the Cavagrande is an amazing experience. As the walk to reach the water-point is relatively long (but really beautiful and worth it) I recommend you bring a picnic so you can enjoy a couple of hours of swimming,...More
