"The color of the beauty" Scopello Castellammare Del Golfo by ludogatto

Scopello is a little villege near Castellamare del Golfo and Natural Reserve of Zingaro.
I love this place cause the first time I discover this palce by chance and it was surronded of flower and parfumes.
The color of the water is fantastic, you want to jump in immediately!
Scopello is little but there are some good thing to see....the most famouse is the Tonnara: the fishermans, after the Mattanza ( a strong and blood way to fish the tunas), took the tunas here to be transformed and prepared. Now the Tonnara is closed and u can enter here to take the sun or tho take a bath in the blue water......in front of the Tonnara there are 2 faraglioni where u can snorkel.

In the high season and in the weekend this place is very crowded, but I had the chance to stay here two time in the sping ( flower and color everywhere) and the last one in late september 2005.....and it was a little bit crowded too.
In 4 years I have seen the change of this place: after a tv film realized in this Tonnara, Scopello became more and more famouse, a lot of houses are grown up, second house for the summer.....someone say it will be a new Vip Location so...Bye bye paradise.
In summer all the littel bay near Faraglioni are full of boats that go too much near the rocks.....

Zingaro Nature REserve is perfect to walk in the nature, looking to the bird and to the beautifull landscape...there are several little beaches where u can stop to have a break.
