It is a small canyon in the cliff. The two banks of the gully are connected by a bridge over which you can pass by car. In dialect the word Ciolo means crow. This bird loves to nest in this reef. Everything is visible from the sea, from where it is possible to better appreciate this glimpse.

The place is very popular in the summer by swimmers who also reach it by car. It is easy to witness the spectacular dives that brave boys make from the bank of the bridge 25 meters above sea level. Going up the gully on foot you can take a nature trail that ends in Gagliano del Capo. Also from Ciolo starts a nature trail (Le Cipolliane) that reaches as far as Novaglie.
