San Vito lo Capo Beach

San Vito Lo Capo is one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in Sicily. Located on the far northwestern peninsula, the white sandy bay lies at the foot of the iconic Monte Monaco and stretches for about 3 kilometres. The Blue Flag bathing waters are generally clear, calm and alluring but occasionally there is some seaweed.

It’s a popular beach for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling, so bring your snorkel and flippers when you visit. The beach has a small marina, loungers and umbrellas for hire along with watersports equipment. Sailing, scuba diving and stand-up paddleboarding are all on offer. There are also plenty of beach bars and restaurants set back from the beach selling pizza, gelato and full meals.

Local landmarks near San Vito Lo Capo Beach include the tiny church on the road leading to the beach and Faro di Capo San Vito lighthouse on the northwest headland. San Vito Lo Capo grew up around a 14th century fortress and the chapel, dedicated to San Vito, which became a place of pilgrimage.
