Randello Nature Reserve, not far from the Irminio River Mouth Nature Reserve, is a little gem. It consists of a forest of pine, cypress, eucalyptus, myrtle and oak trees that ends gently on a pristine beach. Here the sun sets over the sea, so you can admire a beautiful show every evening.

In the woods you will also find tables for picnics, fixed barbecues, showers and toilets and unfortunately it is not so easy to find such well-kept and equipped places in Sicily. The beach has also been declared one of the most beautiful beaches in Italy by the Italian Touring Club and Legambiente .

Where to eat near the Randello Reserve

Being a fairly isolated place, the choice is not very wide. Outside the reserve, however, going towards Punta Braccetto, there is the Calaamari bar, where you can have an aperitif while observing the sea and the sunset. However, it is better to book a table.

Not too far from the bar there is also a very good rotisserie, where you can eat arancini, focaccia, pizzas, roast chicken and sometimes even first and second courses.
