San Vito Lo Capo

San Vito beach

One of the most famous Beaches of the island is situated in a basin at the foot of Mount Monaco, at the edge of the small peninsular which encloses the gulf of Castellammare. The town, of maritime tradition developed around an ancient sanctuary-fortress dedicated to San Vito. Its territory, in addition to the suggestive beach, which is full of people in August, includes the lesser known localities of Castelluzzo and Macari. Moreover, a large part of the Oriented Natural Reserve of the Zingaro falls into the San Vito Lo Capo municipality and can be visited on foot. For some years, the town has been host to the Cous Cous Fest and, more recently, the wine and food event Tempu ri Capuna.
