This beach is located a short distance from Tropea (8-10 min by car) and is an excellent choice - in full season the beaches from Tropea are very crowded. The water has a wonderful colour, and the rocks in the water give a special charm.

We arrived at what could be a stunning Beach, but were confronted by litter everywhere, including empty glass bottles and yet more rubbish on the steps down to the Beach. We squinted our eyes and tried to ignore the litter everywhere and were rewarded with...More
