The gulf of Castellammare is a large and deep natural inlet going from Capo Rama (near Terrasini, in the province of Palermo) and Capo San Vito (near San Vito Lo Capo, in the province of Trapani).
This is a unique destination, little unusual from the more popular islands in Sicily and Sardinia. It is located on the western coast of Sicily and it faces the Tyrrhenian Sea, where you will be surprised find a real tropical beaches and isolated creeks with cristal clear sea water.
