Just like paradise - holidays at San Vito Lo Capo

A paradise of untouched nature and idyllic places is what you meet with on your way to San Vito Lo Capo.

You pass an evergreen hilly landscape, which, every now and then, is populated by flocks of sheep. The „strada del vino Erice“, the wine road of Erice, finally takes you back to the seaside, where a lush flora of almond and olive trees, palm trees and agaves awaits you.

Quite a number of Sicily’s significant sights are not too far from San Vito Lo Capo. It is only one hour by car to the medieval town of Erice, which sits enthroned on a plateau, or to the ancient temples of Segesta.

From Palermo (Falcone-Borsellini airport) as well as from Trapani (Birgi airport), it is somewhat more than an hour by car to San Vito Lo Capo.

The fantastic scenery of crystal clear sea, harbor and majestic Monte Monaco characterizes the town of San Vito Lo Capo.

San Vito Lo Capo includes the districts of Macari and Castelluzzo, both located at the seaside and not quite so vibrant. The comune of San Vito Lo Capo also includes beach bay Bue Marino, which according to the environmental organization Legambiente counts among the most beautiful in Italy.

With regard to Mediterranean cuisine, the town also presents itself at its best: At the restaurants, they always serve fresh fish. Arab cuisine is part of local, traditional cuisine, too, which you notice and taste in quite a number of dishes. If you prefer the traditional pizza, you are sure to find your favorite one at one of the numerous pizza parlors. Of course, there are also cozy cafés, grocery stores and markets.

Our recommendations at San Vito Lo Capo:

  •     Restaurants La Gna Sara with Sicilian cuisine and Tha'am serving Arabian-Sicilian dishes
  •     Internet café Blue Marine at the Lungomare (also offers warm snacks)

Cous Cous Festival at San Vito Lo Capo

The Cous Cous festival, which takes place every year in September, is the main cultural attraction at San Vito Lo Capo. Sicily’s bond with the African continent becomes quite obvious then, as Cous Cous, which is made of semolina, barley or sorghum, is originally North African and was 'imported' by immigrants. 

During the 1-week festival, representatives of various African nations offer the Cous Cous dishes typical for their countries for degustation. Why not try a delicious dish of Cous Cous with meat and dates from the Senegal, for example!

In the piazza you can listen to and enjoy the music performed by Italian artists on the large stage. At the markets stalls throughout the town, you can buy lovely souvenirs as well as regional products.

At the gorgeous sandy beach of San Vito Lo Capo there is a lot of action, too. On the stage, either singers or DJs do their best to make people dance.

Nature reserve „Riserva Naturale Orientata dello Zingaro“

The nature reserve is popular not only for its dwarf fan palms and caves, but also for its wonderfully romantic bathing bays, at which you can go snorkeling and admire the underwater world.

It takes about three hours to traverse the reserve on foot from Scopello all the way to San Vito Lo Capo.

At Scopello, a small fishing village and the gate to the reserve, you can park your car and gather some strength at one of the lovely cafés before starting on your hiking tour.

Important: Take along enough supplies and water, because there are no drop-ins for refreshment in the park.
