Castellammare del Golfo
- Castellammare del Golfo
Castellammare del Golfo, the village of the sea.
This town, which stands on the homonymous gulf, establishes its identity on the sea.
Born as a marine emporium for the businesses of the nearby Segesta, the watchtowers and the defensive ramparts of the castle are reflected on its sea.
Nearby there are still archaic landscapes such as the village of Scopello, leaning on a rock overlooking the stacks and the old tuna.
In the territory of Castellammare falls the main entrance and part of the Zingaro Nature Reserve.
Here we can still find pristine beaches as well as significant endemic manifestations of flora and fauna.
For caving enthusiasts, the caves of Monte Inici are unmissable with very deep “horrors”, underground lakes and glimpses of extreme suggestion.
The coastal development of the Gulf of Castellammare, in the shape of an amphitheater, frames the town of the same name with its fishing port and the castle, in a very suggestive setting.
To the east it has really magnificent beaches.
To the west, the coast becomes rocky, strongly indented, characterized by high rocks overlooking the sea. With the Faraglioni di Scopello, and the coast of the Zingaro from the coves of extraordinary beauty.
Immediately the tip and the cove of Cala Bianca and the tip of Grottaro and, therefore, the beautiful, wide breast of Guidaloca, characterized by crystal clear waters and shallow waters.
The vegetation of the rocky stretches that loom over the sea is particularly rich. In the steppe areas, sloping towards the sea, dwarf palm trees vegetate, while, upstream of the road, superb carob trees, olive trees and euphorbia grow.
