    Gorgeous beach, spectacular views.
    Absolutely loved this beach. It offered beautiful views, crystal clear waters and a range of food options. However, I would recommend purchasing umbrellas as it is too hot without and going down early to avoid crowds. Compared to Mondello in Palermo, this beach is a lot nicer and quieter. But the cost of hiring umbrellas and chairs adds up to an expensive beach day.

    Holiday to remember
    Great beach, with nice blue-green colored water and clean. Also great for children because it is not to deep at the start of the beach, for at least 15-20 meters the water height is at knee/waist height deep. But not of the most beautiful in my opinion, mainly because (at least in mid July) it is pretty crowded and almost whole beach from start to the end has set up paid beach umbrellas and chairs ("ombrellone e lettini"), you need to get to the beach quite early (maybe at around 8 am) to get a spot at front if you have your own umbrella (but beach staff doesn't seem to be happy with that), but as I could see there was no table with information you can't have your own umbrella. The paid one with large umbrella and two chairs costs 15 EURO, they will try to sell you for 20, but you can deal for 15, at least in our case we could. There is no price list, must be one price for locals and another for foreign tourists. English speaking is so-so, but so far we didn't had trouble making an agreement.

    Beautiful scenery ruined by humans
    Beautiful scenery once again ruined from the lack of regulation . Overcrowding of people, sun beds and rubbish everywhere. We were going to stay a while but left due to the amount of people and rubbish everywhere. Italy is so fortunate to have beautiful landscapes but the lack of enforcement to respect Mother nature completely ruins the experience. What a shame.

    Best Beach
    This is a very cool beach town. It might not be well known but it is a great place to visit. The water is crystal blue, the town is very, very cool to explore. I would recommend the off season time like September.

    Beautiful Beach
    We went to this beach as part of a day trip from Palermo. We only spent a couple of hours here but it was nice. It was October so there were not a lot of people. The weather was warm and we walked up and down the beach with our feet in the water which was crystal clear. The scenery was different with a mountain at the end of the beach. I would definitely return but not during the summer months, perhaps late September.

Best time to visit this place is late September or beginning of October. No crowds on this fine white sand beach and still warm temperature in the water. Best beach on Sicily. .

Like many, I visited here because I heard so many speaking of this beach as the best ever. Well, it is not. There are bad things and good things.
The bad: the central part of the beach is packed with umbrellas and deck chairs for rent. Packed means that the umbrellas almost touch each other and extend down to the shoreline (as far as I know, the first 5 meters must be kept free by law). Loud music, loud people densely packed… it’s hell on earth.
The good: on both far sides there are free beaches. Not fully quiet: let us be clear, nothing can be quiet in late July! but liveable.
Regarding the fabled clear water: we had so far two days with southern wind, the water was very good. Especially in the second day, as the strong wind convinced most people not to show up, which was great. Now it’s the second day with northern wind, and the water is awful muddy. Maybe it’s because the tourists harbour is being dredged just now? I shall check on the other side.
All in all, is it worth coming all the way for this? Probably in mid- or late September, yes. During the peak season, I would not bother and just steer clear of San Vito.

Great beach and beautiful water. Just needs more cleaning.

The council really should have a chat with the people who rent out the umbrellas. There are dozens of cigarettes around each one and they don’t seem bothered to clean. If they make money renting them out and using the beach surely they should clean it!

Beautiful beach that has lost its charm. Almost completely covered with sun beds and umbrellas. If you come after 11, you won’t even find a spare one near the sea (people book them in advance apparently). Water isn’t so clear, sometimes you can find some pink sand which is a plus but not a lot. Very overcrowded.

Omg the TRASH! All of Italy (especially Sicily) needs to charge tourists $20 to visit and use the cash for clean up. We won't be back to this beach or likely anywhere in Italy till something is done. There is plastic on the roadsides, in the water, and on the beach. So sad.

This beach seemed really nice and the view us great. As we visited Sicily in December we could not really swim, and we did not stay long.
Nice sand, pink in vertain areas.
Plenty of jellyfish...hopefully they are not there in the summer season.

Wonderful sandy beach and clear turquoise water! It is packed with umbrellas in these summer days. You look quite odd if you don’t rent umbrella and come only with just your own towel. We stayed in the house 5 min from the beach and we don’t like lying on the beach thus we came for a swim and returned back home. Splendid sea for swimming, the water is shallow only first few meters. The town itself is also very nice with many restaurants, bars etc., mostly located at or near Via Savoia.

San Vito has a beautiful beach , it can get crowded in summer . Best time to visit is in September . The beach is a free beach that you can hire an umbrella and sun bed if you like . The water colour is amazing .
