Scopello beaches

The wonderful, scenographic “faraglioni” of Scopello, huge rocks near the shore, are certainly one of the most impressive accesses to the sea that you will ever find: therefore, during your holidays in Scopello, swimming in this wonderful sea with such a breath-taking frame is a must. The beauty of this place made it a location for a lot of important movies (the most famous being probably Ocean’s twelve).

In addition to the faraglioni, you will find other wonderful beaches near Scopello, really worth a trip during your stay, which some of them have really rare fantastic Sicily beach villas. About three kilometers far from the first exit leading to Scopello from the main road you will find the Guidaloca beach, one of the most crowded indeed, with white stones and near camp-sites and holiday houses. Moreover, there are a lot of delightful bays with wonderful sceneries and crystal sea: the little rocky Cala Rossa can be reached from the Guidaloca bay, through a small path that leads to a flight of steps; beyond the faraglioni you can reach Cala Mazzo di Sciacca, a free sandy beach; near the main road (SS 187) you can find the rocky Cala Bianca.

There are other beaches and bays that lay a little further but are absolutely worth the trip: in the Zingaro Nature Reserve, in the area between Scopello and Castellammare del golfo, there are a lot of wonderful bays. This nature reserve is one of the most beautiful paradises in Italy, with wild, uncontaminated nature and amazing sightseeing, and of course a clear, limpid sea with treasures lying in its bed – for all the scuba diving enthusiasts. In the opposite direction, towards the West, you can reach San Vito Lo Capo, a really famous vacation spot first of all for its wonderful and long white-sand beach, that can compete with tropical islands, and also for the famous eno-gastronomic and cultural celebration that takes place every year in September: the Cous Cous fest in San Vito Lo Capo. Each year, important cooks from all over the world come to Sicily to celebrate this Arab dish that here, as well as in the whole Trapani area, is a common dish, frequently served in restaurants too: an incredible melting of flavors, culture and traditions.
