San Vito lo Capo
San Vito Lo Capo is a charming little coastal town hidden on the north-western shores of Sicily, Italy. It is located in a valley between spectacular mountains, and is home to a public beach popular with local vacationers and travelers from abroad.
Administratively San Vito lo Capo is a part of Trapani province with its 3,914 inhabitants. The small town's people earn their share from tourism and agriculture - there are beautiful olive groves owned by some local farmers. Visiting the city during harvest or the townsfolk's beloved couscous festival is a spectacular sight. Like a human sized ant farm coming to life with beautiful smiles, delicious wines and lots of home made food.
San Vito lo Capo also lies near the Zingaro Nature Reserve and the hamlet of Scopello, where some scenes of the movie Ocean's Twelve were filmed in 2004. San Vito is a relatively unknown little resort. A very good place for a vacation with heartfelt locals, and beautiful sights nearby. Like Erice and Segesta, two of Sicily's historic cities.

Approximately 40 km from Trapani, it is one of Sicily's most beautiful, white sandy beaches, where you can enjoy the waters of a completely clean sea for nearly a kilometer. Due to the slow recess and lack of strong currents, San Vito Lo Capo's beach is suitable for families with small children and not, or not so confident swimmers. Mount Cofano, full of caves, makes the place even more attractive. During the season, of course, tourists will take the beach. The shining sand of the three-kilometer shore is one of Sicily's best-known paradise.
