The construction components are then natural wood is predominant, palm leaves, natural fiber for umbrellas set on the beach. The colors are vibrant and the furnishings in harmony with nature, Brazilian hammocks, wicker sets or colored cushions made from recycled fabrics kite that flew on the water front. The contrast of the colors stand out with the blue of the sea, its clear water and wonderful, like Calabria has to offer. Almost always calm in the summer, the sea offers visitors and customers of our beach club, the opportunity to swim and have fun with no worries in the reserved area upwind sailing activities. All this makes Hang Loose Beach a very special place, and where the atmosphere is relaxed, in the spirit of hang loose! The lido has about 100 umbrellas with coverage in African natural fiber. In addition, approximately 250 cots are placed on the beach, a party to the service of umbrellas and another part are served near the shoreline without an umbrella. Already in April, you may find the beds to catch the first rays of the sun, while in June is set up with all the beach umbrellas placed at a good distance from each other. The lifeguards and bar service on the beach complete the organization of our beach club. Available to all customers, there are hot showers and changing facilities with showers or cold outside. In addition to the services at the beach, there are relaxation areas within the village, shaded by natural coolness, wicker seating and hammocks in Brazil. All these features are the focus on the children. A green area with fully equipped games to suit them. Slides, swings, houses and other things with which children can vent all they want to play to 'open air.

“Excellent kite beach with excellent facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

The guys here go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable and welcomed. We paid just 15 Euro each to use the beach and facilities for the whole week, and really liked it. There's lots of space downwind if you want to get out of the way, but the water is deep almost as soon as you get in. Almost no chop. Wind was a bit sketchy as it wasn't as hot as it would normally be this time of year, which meant the thermals didn't really pick up till 5pm most days, and only the flysurfers were out before then. Recommend light wind kites (12m+). The restaurant was lovely and did great pizzas and pasta dishes with fresh seafood. Not much choice of desserts though.

“Welcome to Hang Loose Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

An astonishingly welcoming and incredibly friendly beach /kitesurf resort in Calabria. Great sports facilities, superb restaurant, locally caught seafood a speciality, beachside bars that can compare with any others, anywhere in the world! Add the breathtaking Calabrian coastline and music that makes you want to jump up and dance - and that is Hang Loose Beach! Our campervan and two bouncy springer spaniels could not have been made more welcome!
