The coastEastern side. The Levantine coast of the of Castellammare del Golfo, low and flat, is characterized by its sandy beaches, such as those of the two inlets located to the east and west of the castle headland (respectively, Petrolo and Cala Cala Marina) and as the vast and deep Plaja, located to the east of the town. The western side. The west coast, strongly articulated, is characterized by the presence of high rocks, cliffs and coves often untouched. Hidden by the wild nature that characterizes the vegetation in this part of the coast, is the Grotto of St. Margaret, whose entrance lies between the harbor and the so-called Porta. Accessible only by sea, its peculiarity is formed by walls painted with sacred images, dating seems to be able to place between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries. Always on the same side, moving towards the Zingaro Nature Reserve, is a series of magnificent seascapes: Calabianca, the Punta del Grottaro, a large inlet of the Bay of Guidaloca (characterized by a pebble beach, crystal clear water and shallow water) and Cala Rossa (rich in rocks and in which there is a beautiful cave sottomorina). The last stop before reaching the reserve is the Tonnara of Scopello, famous for its exceptionally clear waters.
