From San Vito Lo Capo you can have a day trip to Trapani, Erice, to the National Park or even Palermo. These opportunities make the town attractive for people planning to spend 5-7 or even 10 days. I picked up some useful links for you to plan a trip:

The best and easiest way to get from Trapani or Palermo to San Vito lo Capo is a car. The roads in Sicily are perfect. There are highways linking the cities and towns. To rent a car in Sicily, use a useful link above.

Where to eat?

I have been to several restaurant along the beach of San Vito lo Capo. They are good for traditional Sicilian food, with reasonable prices. There are no extremes like too cheap or too expansive places. If you want to eat a local place, look for a “Bar”. You are sure to have a “cafE” for 0,90 Euro cent.

Make sure, that San Vito lo Capo is in your travel plan for Sicily. You absolutely have to visit the best Sicilian beach.
