<<< The harbour map
San Vito Lo Capo’s harbour is one of the most secure in the entire Sicily. The Lighthouse Island at west and Solanto’s Cape with two rock formation protect the harbour. In the past Romans, Phoenicians, Arabs, Norman and Spanish will find in the harbour shelter from thunderstorms. The construction of two piers one at west and one at east gives complete protection to the harbour. The fish boats of San Vito are moored at these two piers. Sometime is possible to find a space available for the night and the fisherman welcome tourist with advises and their unconditional sympathy.
The capacity of the harbour is of about 500 boats for 4 floating piers. Some areas of the harbour reach the depth of 8mt.and are reserved to big yacht. There is water and electricity availability at the piers. If interested there are four different diving schools and one sailing and windsurf school, to enjoy excursion in the area.
The harbour is protected from the North Wind and Mistral, as well as for Northeast and Southeast winds that do not create problems to the boats moored at the harbour. The south Wind is the one that could be troublesome at the west pier. During the winter “Greco and Levante” and “Scirocco and Levante” strong winds from east and south could require additional moorings and fenders to protect the boats.
