Zingaro Nature Reserve
North-west of Sicily

San Vito lo Capo is an ancient fishermen hamlet placed at the slopes of the Monaco Mount – right in front of a beautiful beach of white sand lapped by crystalline waters – precisely at the north-western tip of Sicily, 30 Km away on the north-eastern side of Trapani. The present seaside village has developed around the ancient Saracen fortress – which has become a sanctuary now – and is characterized by low white houses, built one next to the other, all adorned with luxuriant Mediterranean plants. Pretty characteristic is the sea-front promenade with its small bars, night pubs and typical restaurants where you get the chance to taste gastronomic fish-based specialities and the famous “cous cous” which still in the present days is cooked in the full respect of the traditional Arab recipe. In its outskirts worth visiting is: the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro (Natural Reserve), a real paradise for those ones who are fond of nature and sea.
