About San Vito Lo Capo
The resort has a bustling harbour filled with fashionable yachts and many good restaurants and trattorias serving local specialities, including seafood and couscous. Much of the small town is pedestrianised and lined with tempting cafés, bars and shops.
Its origins as an ancient Roman port can still be seen near the town's old tuna fishery where fish was kept in offshore stone fish tanks. At San Vito Lo Capo there is the entrance to the Zingaro nature reserve - over 7 kilometres of stunning clifftop walks through an amazing 700 varieties of fragrant Mediterranean trees, flowers and shrubs and many species of migrant and indigenous birds including eagles and peregrine falcons. There are also remnants of stone-age settlements and paths leading down to beach coves for secluded bathing.
