This page is now only for the Salinella cliff, the long cliff by the sea that stretches from Calamancina in the north to the entrance of the El Bahira campsite in the south. Other crags in the area now have their own crag entries, check them on the map.

 

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

Top area. Hard to beat the combination of climbing, camping, and scenery. Nice one Scott and Jim.
