Promontory of Capo d'Orlando and its surroundings

Cape d'Orlando, heavenly beaches, clear sea and warm evening atmosphere and great food

Capo d'Orlando is a town that developed as a fishing village and is now a small summer tourist resort. It faces onto the central-northern coastline of Sicily close to a promontory dominated by an ancient lighthouse that towers above the town's beach. The town currently makes it living primarily from summer tourism thanks to its numerous spectacular beaches that feature a clean uncontaminated sea with reflections that range from cobalt blue to emerald green.
