Built on a cape on Sicily's north coast, San Vito Lo Capo is a renowned summer destination as it is all about the beach. It has been named among Europe's top ten beaches and its coastline is a beautiful blend of sandy beach and rocky shore. Placed between the Cape of San Vito and the promontory of Punta Salanto, a crescent of white sand extends along the waterfront with the town built behind in sugar cube style.
In addition to its renowned beach, the town offers a other few attractions for the traveller. In the summer, boat trips along the coast offer more opportunities for sightseeing and swimming, cruising along the coast and sometimes out to the Egadi islands. A local Sicilian speciality is couscous, and San Vito boasts its own food festival: Cous Cous Fest. There's also a festival of kite-flying. Activities available locally include diving, swimming, stand-up paddleboarding and hiking.
The Zingaro nature reserve is a beautiful protected area of coastline which stretches over a large area of the headland, from San Vito to Scopello. There are a number of footpaths in the reserve, including paths down from the main coastal trail to small coves.
