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

This beach was the best we found around Tropea and there are a few. The Old Well bar on the beach is great - lovely panini - and has some interesting accommodation attached. It could get very crowded in summer and the road has partly...More
