San Vito Lo Capo is a small seaside resort in north-western Sicily famous for the beach overlooking a sheltered bay dominated from above by Monte Monaco. In the centre, the Sanctuary of San Vito (15th century) is a fortress-like structure with Arab-Norman architecture. Arab-Norman influences are also evident in the tiny Chapel of Santa Crescenzia, on the main road leading out of the city, and in the Torrazzo, a circular tower.
The gulf of Màcari is a vast natural inlet along the north-western coast of Sicily, extending from the eastern side of Monte Cofano to Capo San Vito, in the territories of the municipalities of Custonaci and San Vito Lo Capo. It is located on the northern coast of Sicily and overlooks the Tyrrhenian Sea. The coast is preceded by the Gulf of Bonagia and continues after Capo San Vito with the Zingaro nature reserve and then the Gulf of Castellammare. On the side of Mount Cofano there is an ancient tuna fishery.
The Zingaro oriented natural reserve is a protected natural area located in the municipalities of Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito Lo Capo, in the province of Trapani and managed by the Regional State Forestry Company of the Sicily Region. The Zingaro coast is one of the very few stretches of Sicily not contaminated by the presence of a coastal road. The area was inhabited by one last peasant family until around 1960, in the house that is now the weaving museum.
The Monte Cofano Reserve is a treasure chest that contains many treasures. Located halfway between San Vito Lo Capo and Trapani, it is one of the most interesting natural attractions on the Trapani coast. Protected by silence, invaded by lush dwarf palms and the choreographic tufts of disa (ampelodesma), dotted with enormous rocks that have rolled down to the sea, the Monte Cofano Reserve is a terribly fascinating place where time seems to have stopped.
