Near the town of San Vito Lo Capo in NW Sicily. The most developed sectors are near the El Bahira campsite and to the north at Cala Mancina.

Approach notes

About 1h30m drive W from Palermo airport or an hour N of Trapani airport. Many Ryanair flights to Trapani and straightforward by bus to San Vito http://www.aziendasicilianatrasporti.it (Airport-Trapani, Trapani-San Vito). EasyJet to Palermo, bus transfers not as frequent and require a 1km walk in Palermo. Transfers from both airports by El Bahira and Pineta campsites and many local San Vito firms.
Many apartments and villas all around. I use the Italian site www.vulcanoconsult.it/ it covers more villas and apartments than English or international sites. When booking apartments or villas check the small print (usually only in Italian) carefully, there are often extra charges for extra persons (over 2), air con/heating, and cleaning (I have seen

A lot of new routes have been added in the last year and details can be found here; http://www.castelluzzoutdoor.it/arrampicata/le-falesie/aggiornamenti.html and also copies can be picked up from the El Bahira Campsite Reception.
