Terrasini is 5 minutes from the international airport of Palermo “Falcone e Borsellino” and about 30km from Palermo. The coast, which overlooks the Gulf of Castellammare, extends from the Ciucca beach to the San Cataldo one, is mixed, alternating stony coves with high and steep cliffs over the sea.
Near Terrasini is located the Nature Reserve of Capo Rama, established by the Sicilian Region in June 2000 and entrusted in management to the WWF Italy. The promontory’s area had already been identified in 1968 by the Municipality of Terrasini as a “biotope of inestimable value”. The promontory of Capo Rama has been included in the exclusive list of Italian geosites, places of significant geological interest of high naturalistic value. From a wildlife point of view, the Capo Rama area hosts the typical fauna of the rocky coasts.
