Around Ellumara

Today we are exploring the Vendicari Oasis,  a beautiful and attractive nature reserve of 1,512 hectares located between the villages of Noto and Pachino in the province of Siracusa, which offers some of the most beautiful beaches of the Ionian Coast: uncontaminated and crystal clear sea awarded 4 blue sails by Legambiente.

Inside the Vendicari Oasis, guests can admire several archaeological and architectural settlements from the Greek, Byzantine and Medieval periods, such as the Swabian Tower of Vendicari located on the shore of the Vendicari Oasis bay, which was used as a lookout point from possible enemy attacks.

Thanks to its geographical location, the Oasis is a stopping point in the migration of magnificent specimens of animals such as flamingos, herons, mallards and storks that birdwatchers can admire and photograph all year long in specially built huts.

A not-to-miss destination is the Tonnara of Vendicari, one of the symbols of the Vendicari Oasis and representative of the ancient tuna fishing and processing tradition passed down for generations in Sicily.
