San Vito Lo Capo is about 1h drive from Balestrate. The beach is popular for the turquoise water and used as vacation beach for loads of families on the island.
One hour away from Balestrate, Palermo is the biggest city in Sicily and the capital of the region. We did not have a lot of time to wonder around but we enjoyed a lot what we saw.
Sicily is not easy to reach but we managed. Booked a flight Brussels (CLR) - Trapani and we were ready for our holiday. We are not fond of crowded places so we try to avoid when possible the busy summer season so we opted in this case of May and here is the result. You have a piece of beach in Italy only for yourself! :)
