This little cove is hidden away near the village of Scopello in the Zingaro nature reserve. It is the prefect meeting of a beautiful natural location with some fine old crumbling buildings. Just off the coast, rising dramatically out of the crystal clear waters are the faraglioni, a series of natural rock towers. These are echoed by the ruins of two old watch-towers which cling to the cliff side above the cove. Down on the cove, next to the slipway is the old Tonnara di Scopello itself, which translated means the tuna fishery of Scopello. Up until a few years ago this too was abandoned and could be explored, however the coves owners have refurbished it and converted it into a boutique hotel. Sadly this seems to have extended to access to much of the cove, but it is still as beautiful as ever.
