The main beach of Castellammare del Golfo is only 5/10 mins by car. A bus operated by a company called Russo provides a connection with beaches, the bus station is at 300 mt. from the house. During the summer months there are numerous beach bars with sunbathing facilities, pedalos, baby areas etc…
There are also several other beaches, offering more tranquillity and the option of scuba diving.
In about 10 minutes you can reach the famous seaside resort of Guidaloca, with its turquoise sea and it’s terrific landscapes.
The maritime village of Scopello (15 min) is a natural paradise, small but rich of traditions. A place able to preserve itself as time goes by: few houses, the courtyard, a church, the Faraglioni and the Tonnara. The tonnara is one of the most ancient of the island, not used anymore, is the proof of a former flourishing activity. It evokes the charme of an abandoned place and the silence that surrounds it, is interrupted only by the sound of the waves. The buildings of the slaughterhouse “mattanza”, the stock house where the tuna was stored and the anchors used for the fishing nets are still visible.
There's also the nature reserve of Zingaro (15 min): has a coast 7 kilometres long that is beautiful and uncontaminated and overlooks the gulf of Castellammare and the mountains, enriched by the small bays and the evocative vertical cliffs. Important for the wide variety of rare and endemic plants, the Zingaro is also important for the fauna: in fact the existence of small ecological paradises allows a fauna variety that doesn’t exist in other parts of the island. The area is also of archaeological importance thanks to the spectacular cave, “grotta dell’Uzzo” where there was one of the first prehistoric settlements of the island. Walkers paradise & excellent opportunities for scuba diving whether you are professional or it's your first time.
The village of San Vito Lo Capo is a renowned bathing resort, especially famous for its enchanting beach: crystal water with the colours of turquoise, green and intense blue.
Segesta: Mythological destination highly recommended, with its Punic temple in Doric style built outside the city walls at the end of the Vth century B.C. but also important for the theatre that overlooks the sea.
Erice: small Medieval village with its castle, the fascinating churches and a breathtaking view at the “Belvedere”, the Punic fortifications, the castle of Venere, the Medieval historical centre…but let's not forget the typical almonds desserts!
Trapani: a fishing and ferry port with a long history. Trapani was an important town throughout the Middle Ages, and it is the medieval phase of the town's past which is most evident in the old town. It is possible to see numerous dazzlingly white mountains shimmering in the sun: these are hills of Trapani’s salt-mills, an evocative and unreal scenario.
Egadi Islands: Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo, pearls of the Mediterranean area, of an undeniable beauty, with natural caves that overlook the cobalt blue sea, but also remainings of prehistorically civilizations and famous for the “Mattanza” (traditional fishing of tunas).
Marsala - Mothia: Marsala is famous for the sweet wine, but also for the isle of Mothia and the Salinas with wind mills. The Isle of Mothia is a Punic site where the Phoenicians stopped in the VIIIth century B.C. before settling in Sicily. The island is connected to land thanks to a small undersea tunnel.
Selinunte: the most important archaeological area in Europe, proof of the Hellenic civilization in Sicily.
Palermo: the Capital of Sicily, is a melting pot of many different cultures that throughout the years have been conquering the island and the city, loving it, fighting for it and leaving strong traditions that still coexist today. One of the richest towns in the island for history and art: the Cathedral, the “Palatina” Chapel, the “Quattro Canti”, the Pretoria Square, the Martorana Church and of course the traditional markets of “Ballaro’” and “Vucciria” where delight the palate with local vegetables, fruits and typical “panelle”and “arancine”.
