    One side of the town has the port.

    The other side of the town has beautiful sandy beaches (no photo except the long view).

    The beach is okay to walk along or for sunbathing purposes and local families spend time there.

    For swimming, the sea is cleaner and clearer about 10 km down the coast in the settlement of Scopello which is just on the edge of Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro. Indeed there are beautiful bathing spots from the coastline of the Nature Riserve too.

    "La Lampara" is a great place to eat, situated on Castellammare del Golfo beach. They have great pizza's but what I really love is their fresh fish and seeafood. You should ask for the fish of the day ("pescato del giorno") and let the owner (a very nice bald guy :-) surprise you. Excellent wine list and wonderful to eat outside during the warm summer evenings!

    Favorite Dish: Insalata di polipo, is always fresh and tasty. Simple but great!

    Cantina Aurelia is a cosy pub, very popular due to his free concerts, good beer and friendly owner Diego. The music is always great and they organize life shows very often. Their snaks are also very tasty and the cocktails are real "art works" :-)
    On request they can rent you a mountain bike or organize trekking, diving and climbing experiences.

    Dress Code: informal

    Favorite thing: On the side of the superstrada between Palermo and Trapani as you enter Castellammare (it's also opposite the bus stop for whoever arrives by public transport) you'll find a relatively uncharacteristic bar that probably won't grab your attention were it not for this article. There are three bars lined up, one after the other, but the one to take notice of is 'La Sorgente' owned by Vincenzo Scuderi (address: C/da Gemma d'oro, 92, telephone: 0924 32800).

    Cassetelle are a specialty sweet from the province of Trapani, but especially Castellammare. This is the bar that produces the best and the most. We had tried several prior to these ones and they were nice, but didn't rate as anything worth writing about.

    La Sorgente exceeded all expectations with their steaming hot cassetelle. The place is so busy and they sell so many that they are always hot and stuffed to overbrimming with a delicious mix of ricotta and chocolate chips!

    Mmmmmmm....

    Fondest memory: See above... warm, freshly baked cassatelle from La Sorgente bar!
