Castellamarre del Golfo - beaches and cab fares

Hi,

We are looking at renting a house close to Castellammare del Golfo this summer. Does anyone know what the beaches are like in the area? I was reading some old posts about them being quite unclean, is that the case?

I am also wondering if anyone knows what the cab fares are in the area? We are thinking it would be nice to take a cab for the 5-8 km distance to Castellammare in the evenings when going out for food and drinks. Does anyone know about what that would cost us, one way?

Thanks :)

It is best to rent a car for staying near or in Castellammare

Castellammare del Golfo itself is less than optimal without a car, and if you plan to stay a distance from town, then surely consider hiring a car.

Taxis are not all that common in Sicily, and pricey.

The beaches around Scopello and Zingaro are lovely.

Castellammare del Golfo's cleanliness is inconsistent.
