Visited the area near Capo Passero during our first scooter trip to Sicily. Portopalo is a quiet, nice place and the seafront area next to the island is very tranquil and offers nice views of the island surrounded by the deep blue sea.

This fantastic place is the essence of Sicilian landscapes. Is a pride of mother earth. The island, the rocks, the fisherman`houses, the color and the scent of the sea. If you are a diver then you must go there below the water to visit the submersed caves. Once you`re there just make a spin around you and look the The Tafuri Castle, and the Tonnara. And even more the taste of the classic and revised seafood courses. Just grab your camera, and go. Build up a memorable experience.

We just walked through the city after all the recommendations we read in trip advisor we loved this place. Cute and easy to find anything you want or need. All the cafes and testers nuts. This attraction was a cute highlight a must see.

I would have liked to walk or swim to the island, but we could not find the shallow stretch linking it to the mainland, probably wrong time of the day, although later we met some girls who made it across (swimming). We easily found a boat that takes people to and from the island, at a reasonable price (5 euro adults, 2.5 euro children), and we got about two hours in the middle of the day to spend on the island. The first thing you find is the building that used to be the tonnara. It looks like it had been abandoned a long time ago, but there were still nets in decent condition lying around... puzzling. Past the tonnara there is a path that takes you to the other end of the island. This is lovely, in the middle of dwarf palm trees, dark green against the blue of the sea with splashed of golden sand. At the other end of the island there is a religious statue and a building which is nearly as puzzling as the tonnara: completely locked up, not easy to reach, but with a stair lift to get to the (locked) entrance. The walk is not going to take more than an hour... the rest of the time can be spent on the sandy beach facing Portopalo. This is the place where people can walk to when the tide is low.
