We also drove to San Vito from Scopello and hiked Mt Cofano reserve. The trail around the periphery was closed due to avalanches but we had a fabulous hike through the middle to what seemed like a small village of Baglio Cafano. Stunning. Spectacular views...More

We walked the round trip although it was officially closed due to ‚caduta massi‘, but no one cared... a nice walk, lots of flowers (less compered to Zingsro to be honest), not many people. This walk is second to Zingaro to my opinion as swimming...More

We parked for free at the Grotta Mangiapane and the walk is signposted from there. With the help of the Sicily Car Tours and Walks book, we set off up towards the saddle, hiking anti-clockwise round the mountain. Unfortunately we had an out of date...More

We walked around Monte Cofano on a fabulous sunny April morning. It took just over 3 hours. The views are spectacular, the flowers, bushes, shoreline, cliffs etc are wonderfully unspoiled. We parked where the road ran out near the top of a limestone quarry having...More

For those disappointed by Zingaro's touristy trail(s), Monte Cofano provides a great alternative, Though less large than Zingaro, the circular track (3 hours) around the mountain beats Zingaro hands down. A low pass (200m) is required to be overwon resulting in great views east and...More

The nature around Monte Cofano is really stunning and absolutely beautiful. There are a few panoramic views and you can always walk near the sea. Because our residence was directly in Cornino, we went there every day jogging :) The sunrise and sunset are simply...More

Lots of walking into the nature and lots of paths that can be made, by bike. Its a good place for climbing too. The Bay face west, hence amazing sunsets are ensured ;)

Take plenty of water and some food and hike around, oktober was quiet and not too hot. We loved it! Try to find the bathing area inclosed in the rocks, near the tonnara.

This reserve is less known and by far less crowded than Lo Zingaro (on the other side of San Vito) but is really worth visiting. The road to the first part is dirt but flat, and I went by mountain bike until the tonnara, where...More

This natural reserve, less visited than Zingaro, was breathtaking. The walk had many steep inclines and declines if you do not stick to the lowest path. It is a photographer's paradise. The tonnara is one of several historic markers within the park, and the park...More
