Sun, Sand, Spaghetti and Swordfish

Travelling on from Trapani, Ben and I explored the North-West coast of Sicily, starting in San Vito Lo Capo, then onto Clatafimi and Scopello

...Oh, Scopello. I'll rave about that cove a little later on. For now, let's head to the beach.

San Vito Lo Capo boasted the clearest beaches with the whitest sand. The two hours we spent lazing on a beach bed under an umbrella was truly spectacular indulgence.

As were the plates of pasta we ate for lunch...

...and the scoops ofgelato we had after all that sun and sand. Pistachio salted nut perfection. The owner of this store could not understand why we would want to leave Melbourne, home of the Australian Open, and travel to San Vito Lo Capo. Oh, dear man, you have no idea how lucky you are to live in this coastal paradise. And so close to other gems such as Scopello and Palermo. Melbourne is truly wonderful, but's Sicily.

Gelato in hand, we drove on to Scopello, a stunning teeny tiny seaside town. We planned to spend two nights here, swimming by day and eating by night. More on Scopello in my next post...

Our first dinner was nearby in Calatafimi. Do you recall our friends who sent us to Ortigia and also Ferla? Well, as part of our Wedding present, these gorgeous friends bought us dinner at their family's hotel, Relais Angimbe, in Calatafimi (where their family is from).

Driving around, exploring Calatafimi for a short while before dinner...

This dinner was a definite treat, we had the most wonderful evening and enjoyed a truly beautiful meal at Relais Angimbe.

The setting was gorgeous and calm, and the Sicilian-style swordfish oh so dreamy.

And I cannot stop thinking about the divine, simple, subtle spaghetti with zucchini.

Thank you, Rosa and Michael. We adored our meal, and our special little visit to Calatafimi.

Next, I'll take you around Scopello, one of our most favourite Sicilian destinations. I can hardly wait.
