A Beautful coastal southern Italy beach. Very clean sand and crystal clear water. In peak season, arrive early, say around 10am so you can reserve an umbrella. For the few euro you have to pay for the umbrella, it is well worth every euro.

The beach is the most beautiful beach i have ever seen! We are going there almost every year because theres no better place to have great holidays! The water is clear blue and not too cold, the beach is clean and almost white! You can rent some umbrellas and pedalos! There are some caves at the peninsula which you can... More

We stayed there for a couple of hours and experienced it was very crowded and 2,5 times more expensive as other beaches in Calabria. Nice place for snorkelling!

I absolutely love tropea and I love the beach here. The beaches in tropea are absolutely spotless. Zero trash on the beach any where. Not a single cigarette on the shore line. The water so clear you can see to the bottom as deep as 12ft out. Beautiful harmless fish swim with you and all the people in the water.... More

It is surely the most attractive place on the west coast of Calabria. A bit run down in places, but pleasent and charming at moments. A bit overcrowded in August. Sea beautiful, warm and inviting; white sandy beach.

They call I Costa degli Dei Coast of the Gods and the Pearl of Calabria. Fabulous beaches, clean warm sea and friendly people. For most Cslabria is out of the way and doesn't have the profile of Italy's better know provinces, but Tropea is a hidden gem that's slowly growing in popularity and more and more Europeans and North Americsn...

Tropea beach is the best sandy beach we´ve visited during our visit to western coast of Calabria, it is large, clean, watched, with sunbeds and parasols service available. There are good parking possibilities and many restaurants and café nearby. A lot of people coming here to bath from areas nearby. Views towards the beach from the observation point in centre...

The water is crystal clear and warm! Many of the beaches are rocky. Good idea to have water shoes to wear. If you forget to bring them there are many places you can purchase them.

Thank god we paid only for the flight because we were in my parent's house otherwise it would have been just a waste of money. We spent ten days in Tropea and we went above all to the 'baia di Riaci' beach, where I use to go when I was a child/teenager. On our way to the beach, on the... More
