The views from this place are unbelievable! This place is heaven on earth! The water is crystal clear, sandy beach, very clean, worth visiting! Many small shops for souvenirs! Tried the pizza from a local restaurant which was amazing and not expensive at all. A must see in my opinion! Very tranquil and calming!

The scenery is breathtaking as the cathedral on the hill and the city on the plummeting rock on the other create a unique experience. The beach is sandy and very crowded on weekends and special holidays, but the water is very clean and needs to be tried.

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. However, I bought some beach shoes for a few euros and once I was in the sea I didn't want to get out. We also went to Lido del Nonno near the port,... More

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.
