It may not be the first thing that comes to mind when people think of Sicily, but hiking at Zingaro was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The nature reserve spans 7km along the island's northwest coast, winding through lush landscapes of palms and prickly pear that tumble down rocky cliffs to the jewel-toned sea and 7 pebbly beach coves below. It's the perfect destination for hikers and beachgoers alike.
