San Vito Lo Capo: from sunset to sea to nightlife

In San Vito, the nightlife with pubs and open-air discos follows the walk along the seafront, with an aperitif at sunset in the Gulf of Castellammare, after spending a relaxing day on the golden beaches or climbing among the rocks to look for the highest point to dive from.

Every year San Vito lo Capo hosts the Couscous Festival, a week of events linked to the culinary tradition of couscous revisited and recreated differently each year.

What to do and see in San Vito Lo Capo?

  • The Couscous Festival: if your holidays fall in September, San Vito Lo Capo is the right place to book your vacation. In September the town is less crowded, and you can enjoy the beaches and the spaces that the municipality makes available to tourists even more. The highlight is still the week of the international Couscous Festival, with Italian and international music that accompanies the tasting of many different types of couscous.
  • San Vito beach: over the years, San Vito beach has received numerous blue flag and green flag awards for its cleanliness, clarity and sea quality. The coast is so vast and diverse that all tastes can really be satisfied: diver enthusiasts will discover dozens of rocks to hone their techniques, and lovers of relaxation, on the adjacent beaches, will be able to sunbathe without being disturbed.
  • Sanctuary: from the outside, it looks like a medieval fortress, built with the sole purpose of defending the city of San Vito. With great surprise we discover then the true nature of this magnificent building that lies on the main square of San Vito: it is a Sanctuary built around the old chapel dedicated to the patron saint.
  • The towers: due to its strategic position for spotting, San Vito was the victim of various pirateraids over the centuries. Precisely for this reason the city is surrounded by numerous sighting towers: the Torrazzo, a circular tower probably of Arab origin, and the Torre dell’Isulidda, from which the Chapel of Santa Crescenzia is visible.
