We are on the northwestern tip of Sicily, a tropical paradise in the middle of the Mediterranean and perhaps it is no coincidence that the road to San Vito lo Capo cross the village of Purgatory ... To get to this pleasant resort, follow the highway 187 connecting Trapani to Palermo. At the height of Baglio Messina turns north towards Custonaci, you leave on your left the unmistakable profile of the Rocky Mount Hood and, after the village of Castelluzzo, is reached after about 9 miles to San Vito lo Capo, close eponymous head.
We notice immediately that they are near a border, the road here dies before the vastness of the sea that opens toward the center of the Tyrrhenian Sea and savor the charm of the villages of fishermen from the white houses that surround the beach. In summer the city comes alive and sparks of life and noise, but if you arrive during low season in late September or early June, the ancient roots of San Vito riemegono forcefully. The beach of San Vito is truly spectacular. Preceded by a promenade lined with palm trees, white sands from the coast with golden hues, remains closed to the east by the imposing mass of Mount Monaco, while to the west, beyond the port city overlooking the 40 meter tall lighthouse that marks the position of Head S. Vito. In total about 1800 m in width for up to 50 m wide, with white sand beaches, and in front of you a sea of turquoise blue light that fades out to sea, in a similar way to noble Caribbean beaches.
The urban streets of the city is set to orthogonal to each other, which come alive during the evening walk. To remember are the Sanctuary, found along Via Savoia, easily recognizable by its grandeur and its sober Norman style, and the temple of Saint Crescentia, small but undoubted influence of Arab-Norman. If you stay a few days in San Vito then you can take some 'time also the Maritime Museum, also on Via Savoia, with interesting archeological area of San Vito.
Excursions are those recommended to the tuna fishery of the Dry and the nearby famous Zingaro. Access is along the waterfront to the east, toward the monetary Monaco and from there continue along the path of dry for about 2.5 km. The site of the old tuna is suggestive, though now the state of abandonment of the buildings makes them rather battered, on the other hand is that since 1969 the tuna fishing is here, finally, stopped. Going further towards the Gypsy. This reserve is a place of extraordinary beauty, without a road running through it, making it the kingdom of trekking and ... sweat! The reserve consists of a long stretch of coast about 10 km steep and wild (until the trap of Scopello), characterized by beautiful Mediterranean vegetation, which in some seasons royal beautiful blooms. Some trails allow access to the coves very beautiful, splendid colors and the backgrounds that are well adapted to the practice of snorkelling. Without a car available to the bathroom is a bit 'a conquest, but the beauty of the widely lugo repay your efforts.
