About the Event

Join Birdlife Malta’s Events & Activities Group for a 5-km easy trek enjoying the natural environment and birdwatching at Pantani Cuba & Longarini in the province of Syracuse.
Following our arrival in Pozzallo, we will visit this seaside town for those who would like to have a light breakfast. We will then depart to Pantani Cuba & Longarini Nature Reserve which is renowned for being one of Sicily’s most popular and important migratory bird sanctuaries.
The reserve is owned and run by the Foundation Pro Biodiversity, based in Bielefeld, Germany and committed to the protection of endangered wild species. The area has more than 60 species of waterbirds, herons, storks and flamingos together with species of water-bound insects. Suitable footwear is always recommended.
At around 1pm we will proceed for lunch at the Agriturismo La Vignazza.
Lunch will include antipasti, starters, main courses, dessert, wine and water. Following lunch, we will visit the baroque town of Pachino before departing to Pozzallo from where we will embark on our trip back to Malta.
The day trip, including the catamaran fare, port charges, coach transport, nature reserve entrance, lunch, tips, and guide, will cost €185 including VAT.
