Its flora includes hundreds of different species including Juniper, a protected species, and oceanic Poseidonia, an aquatic plant essential for the biodiversity of the Mediterranean. The reserve represents for over 250 species of birds, including the flamingo, a station to rest and refresh during the migration from Africa.

The half-day itinerary is a walking tour along the coast to discover the many habitats and ecosystems present in the reserve, a nesting area for several species of birds including the flamingo. It will be possible to admire this bird from the lookout huts and from extraordinary panoramic points, while they drink in huge stretches of water. The Vendicari reserve represents for many species of birds a station to rest and refresh during the migratory journey from Africa. Along the way we will discover enormous basins of water which constitute the most important ecosystem for the fauna of the reserve, together with the sand dunes, among the highest in Sicily. The dunes are a nesting place for little terns and sea turtles. Nature is the background of some archaeological sites present in the riserve that testify the passage of peoples from different eras. An example is the ancient Tonnara of Vendicari, today an industrial archaeological asset that dates back to the eighteenth century, the Swabian watchtower and the ancient ovens of Hellenistic origin, today incorporated into the cliff of Vendicari, near which there is one of the beaches of the reserve where will be possible to swim.
