Alan Rogers Review
La Pineta is attractively located on Sicily’s north coast and is within easy access of Palermo and Trapani. The site enjoys easy access to a fine sandy beach (250 m). Pitches are well shaded and most are provided with electricity. La Pineta also has around 30 brick built bungalows available to rent, as well as a number of apartments. Leisure facilities include two good sized swimming pools (with a generous sunbathing terrace), tennis and volleyball. The Restaurant della Pineta is the site’s focal point and specialises in Sicilian cuisine, making good use of local fish.
This is a stunning coastline and there are some excellent local walks to enjoy. Off shore, the mini archipelago of the Aegadian islands provides a popular excursion. The islands have been inhabited since prehistoric times and are surrounded by wonderful crystal waters. Palermo is, of course, the island’s capital and is a major Italian city (with a population of 1.2 million). There is a great deal to see here, including a fine cathedral and the Palazzo dei Normanni, one of Italy’s most beautiful palaces.

Approaching from Palermo, leave the A29 autostrada at the exit for Castellamare del Golfo. Continue to Castellamare and then follow SS167 to Messina. Here, take the northbound SP46 to Custonaci and then to San Vito lo Capo. The campsite is clearly signed from here.
