    “You should not expect much comfort. Nearby there are two simple restaurants, which are mainly based on pizza. The prices are moderate. The quality is good. The place is mostly visited by locals and their relatives living in Germany. The beach is spacious. The sea is flat here and mostly quiet. However, if you are looking for peace and quiet here is wrong. It is sometimes very spirited, loud music from the neighboring screen is normal. Also the garbage is a problem. This depends on the one hand with the lack of infrastructure, on the other hand, however, with the attentionlessness of many beach visitors.”

    “Balestrate is a nice little place where you can find everything you need. The people are very nice. If you drive there car, a navigation system is mandatory, otherwise it will be very difficult. Despite the description and navigation problems we had problems to get to the accommodation. That was obviously due to Traveo and not to the owner. When we called the owner, he picked us up immediately .... really great. I can only recommend this apartment!”

    “The place Balestrate does not offer much. However, Castelamare del Golfo with very good restaurants and supermarkets z. B. in Alcamo in about 20 minutes - to reach by car. The beach, which is only rarely visited in September, is about 500 m walk.”

You can also try homemade ice-cream in a bun, which is typical for the south part of Italy. If you'd like to give it a try you just order a brioche con gelato, you won't be disappointed!
