SAN VITO LO CAPO
SAN VITO LO CAPO BEACH
Our spot is not located in a typical tourist place.
We have a beautiful bay – the perfect place for kitesurfing, intimate resteurants with delicious food and grape plantations to the horizon.
However, if one day you feel like finding yourself in a promenade full of tourists, lighted pizzerias and bazaars with toys, magnets and flip-flops, the eighteenth-century town of San Vito lo Capo is a plan for the day.
What does this place attract tourists with?
Many say that the beach of the same name is one of the most beautiful, if not the most beautiful beach in Sicily.
San Vito lo Capo is located between two nature reserves – Zingaro and Monte Cofano.
From one side, the beach is closed by a fishing port and a 40-meter high lighthouse. From the other side by a spectacular mountain with a cliff falling to the sea.
The sand is loose and almost white. The waters of the Tyrrhenian sea are crystal clear, warm and turquoise blue in this place.
On the beach you can rent a sunbed with an umbrella, or lay under a palm on a towel.
Who doesn’t prefer lying down too much can go for a walk along the beach promenade. Or even more intimate – go to the nearby Zingaro reserve (Riserva dello Zingaro) – in the direction of a large rock.
There are diving schools waiting for the most active ones. It can be several-hour or full-day diving trips, as well as boat trips to the Zingaro reserve, combined with snorkelling.
In the evenings San Vito lo Capo is a paradise for enthusiasts of nightlife, music all over the place and colorful drinks.
You can often find bigger scale events or festivals here – for example, the spectacular patron day (Saint Vito) on June 15th, the international kite festival (May), or the international couscous festival in the last week of September – more info here
(cus-cus di pesce is the local specialty).
