The Capo Gallo - Isola delle Femmine Marine Protected Area was established in 2002 and is located in the north-western area of Sicily. It covers the stretch of sea off the coast between the municipalities of Palermo and Isola delle Femmine, occupying an area of approximately 2.17 square kilometres.  The aims of the marine protected area are the protection and enhancement of the area's biological and geomorphological resources; the diffusion and dissemination of knowledge of the ecology and biology of marine and coastal environments; the implementation of educational programmes to improve general culture in the field of ecology and marine biology; the implementation of study and research programmes in the fields of ecology, marine biology and environmental protection; the promotion of socio-economic development compatible with the area's naturalistic and landscape relevance, also by favouring traditional local activities already present.  Several attractions can be found here, the most famous of which is the Grotta dell'Olio, a semi-submerged cavity that opens at water level, with a seabed rich in fauna and colourful vegetation.
