Travellers with their own vehicles should consider detouring 15km east of Selinunte to this venerable eatery on the Porto Palo beachfront. In business for five decades, Da Vittorio has earned a reputation as one of western Sicily’s best spots for fresh seafood. The front-row view of crashing breakers is wonderful any time of day, but especially at sunset.

Rooms are available upstairs for anyone too stuffed to drive home (single €50 to €60, double €80 to €90).
