Castellammare del Golfo is a small resort town on the Sicilian coast. It is surrounded by beautiful beaches covered with light, fine sand. The coastline here is very varied, with numerous rocks, headlands and coves, and the coastal waters are perfect for diving.
The town has kept its historical character and you can feel the real Sicilian atmosphere in it. There are narrow, cobbled streets with multi-storey, tightly arranged houses, churches with simple facades and preserved historical interiors pressed into the buildings, and small squares with café tables.
However, what attracts people to the town and is the biggest attraction of Castellammare del Golfo are the local beaches. The largest and best developed is La Playa, covered with golden, soft sand. But there are also more secluded beaches hidden in coves in the area. This includes Cala Mazzo di Sciacca, Guidaloca and Scopello. The beach of Scopello is especially beautiful, surrounded by high cliffs and rocks. Next to it, there are the former buildings of the tuna processing plant, Tonnara di Scopello, which are open to the public.
The waters off the shore around Castellammare del Golfo, thanks to their clearness and underwater rocks, are perfect for diving and snorkeling. While swimming, you can also watch fish and other animals living in the water. Scenic cruises along the coast are also a popular form of entertainment during your stay in Castellammare del Golfo.
