San Vito Lo Capo

San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily

© Giovanni Caruso –

A small town in Trapani province, a turquoise, limpid sea and mile after mile of fine white sandy beaches.

San Vito lo Capo’s coastline is popularly believed to be the most beautiful in Italy. The beautiful gulf of Castellammare is a varied and alluring coastline with stretches of flat, sandy beach, crystal clear waters, cliffs and coves and overhanging, mountainous headlands and San Vito is a small town which has not yet sullied its coastline with urban sprawl.

Sea, sun and relaxation on the beaches of your dreams are certainly the main attractions of San Vito but, with its position on Costa Gaia, only 100 kilometres from Palermo and 30 kilometres from Trapani, there’s a lot to do and see in the surrounding area as well.

To start with there are the sicilian parks such as the great Zingaro Nature Reserve and the Mount Cofano Park, extensive mountainous protected areas with breathtaking views ideal for walkers, cyclists and climbers offering a range of spectacular climbing routes.

Only a short distance from the beaches, you can get to the imposing headland of Mt. Monaco directly from San Vito town and its cliffs and rocky sea bed full of marine life are perfect for scuba divers and snorkelling.

San Vito lo Capo is an enchanted paradise with an unequalled countryside and coastline, sicilian and national tourism’s pride and joy and one of the best seaside destinations in Italy.
