It would be remiss of me not to mention the (many) fantastic beaches that can be found around the NW coast of Sicily. The ones we discovered were mainly pebbly beaches, with the stones getting ever smaller towards the sea. But this meant that the waters were crystal clear. They can be very crowded in the summer, so I’d advise going out of the peak season and you may lucky, like us, and have them almost all to yourselves. 🙂
During the week we had been driving into Castellammare to eat each evening, so we had never seen it in the daylight. We therefore stopped off on the way back to the airport to take some pictures of the beautiful harbour from the road above.
