Things to do in Sicily
In case there is no wind and you can’t go kitesurfing there are multiple things to do in Sicily. There are many sights to see or sports to try.
Lo Stagnone offers endless flat water for those who would like to go for a bit of paddling. There are several islands in the lagoon so you can spend easily hours with discovering and looking for treasures in the water. Yes treasures! When people kite they often lose sunglasses or Gopro cameras so it’s good to keep your eyes open.
Kitesurf Safari Katamaran trip to the Egadi Islands:
If you had enough of the lagoon of Lo Stagnone or there is no wind for a few days you can also join us for some Katamaran trips. There is a lot to discover in Sicily and even on the windless days you can find some spots with some wind. Don’t hesitate to contact us 🙂
If you would like to relax more and see the little islands in the neighbourhood, you can go for a small boat trip. You can check the Salines and some abandoned houses. If you don’t mind discovering the sad history of Marsala, here you can also find the island where they used to send the people who suffered in incurable diseases in the past.
With a short 1 hour drive you can get to San Vito Lo Capo, what is a stunning climbing paradise. There are plenty of routs for all levels, it is perfect for beginners and advanced climbers as well.
Just at the foot of the rocks there is a friendly camping, called El Bahira, where you can stay during your climbing holiday.
Check their site for more information about the facilities: http://www.elbahira.it/
Next to San Vito Lo Capo you can find the 530m high Monte Monaco. There is a nice hiking route up to the top where you will have a stunning view over the Gulf of Castellamare:
Fom San Vito you can also enter the Zingaro Natural Reserve, which offers you another challenging trail along the coastline. There are several spectacular beaches with crystal clear water along the 7km route between San Vito Lo Capo and Scopello (the eastern entrance of the natural park). This park is known as the most beautiful part of western Sicily. During the hot summer days the small beaches are usually crowded, so we suggest you to start the hike early in the morning if you are there in the summer months. There are no shops in the natural park, so prepare some food and take plenty of water with you.
