    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.

    Lovely beach, nice church and friendly people.
    Lovely beach, very clear water. Parking was difficult and we went out of season! Parking will be a nightmare from 1st May. Anyway, we enjoyed our week there, but we had a car and went on some adventures to other places. Without the car, it would have been quite boring.

    Beautiful Beach & Crystal Clear Sea
    The beach can be busy, but there is room for everyone. The sand is clean, the water is clear and you can paddle quite a way out. There are sellers but you get that most places and they respond when you politely say no. Massages are €10 and are brilliant. It costs €15 for the day to hire 2 sun beds and a parasol. I have read some really hit and miss reviews on here and was surprised by how lovely the beach is and we have happily spent a few days there relaxing. There are touristy shops, cafes, and restaurants only a few minutes walk away.

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.

Do not book in the San Vito area since in august the water is so dirty I found diapers, plastic and much more. I was told by the hotel staff that this happens when the beach is overcrowded.

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.
