The water is great but can get murky. Shame about pebbly beach. Frankly given the fame of this beach we expected more. Capo Vaticano is much better

It's quite difficult to find something similar in the rest of the world, this is one of the most beautiful pleace I've seen. Wonderful sea with dozens of colours, white sand,nice atmosphere, good food, very typical place, one of Calabria's pearl.

Beautiful clear water. The only reason I wouldn't say its excellent is the pebbly sand and there is a shelf going into the sea with some stones.

Beaches in Tropea and surroundings are wonderful. Water is pure and transparent. Too bad that the sea is so calm...

Great for swimming. Deep quite soon after you get in, but really lovely! We had letting and umbrella and good snacks from the cafe/bar. We spent an idyllic day relaxing and swimming. Hooray!

Tropea has a picture postcard beach and the sea is lovely and warm to swim in. Crystal clear water with fishes swimming close to the rock shelf.

Located with a backdrop of the walls of the old town of Tropea, this beach is clean. If you like a beach full of deckchairs and umbrellas, this is the place for you. However, if you like to walk along long stretches of isolated sea front, this is not what you will find here.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've even seen. Amazingly clean and clear water. I can't wait to return.
