ACCOMMODATION AND FOOD ARE NOT INCLUDED

Curiosity about the Natural Reserve:
The Natural Oriented Reserve “Marinello Lakes” is the sandy area by a beautiful transparent and crystal, clear sea. The beach is surrounded by a suggestive scenario characterized by the presence of small ponds created by fine strips of sand continually shaped by stormy seas and is famous for the legend that gives it a special aura of mystery.
In fact, it is said that the creation of these lakes is linked to a child falling from the arms of a miscreant mother. She in fact did not want to belive in the Black Virgin of Tindari whose shrine stands on the promontory of the reserve. Legend has it that the child was miraculously saved by the sudden retreat of the waters that gave way to a blanket of soft sand, which cushioned the fall.
On the top of the Tindari mountain there is also an ancient greek theater (IV cent. b.C. ) to visit absolutely.
