Chianalea beach

The beach of Chianalea extends in the district of the same name east of the city center of Scilla, in Calabria. The beach is reached via the SS 18 Tirrenia Inferiore towards Favazzina . show more

Chianalea was born as a fishing village and the old and characteristic dwellings overlooking the sea are a testimony, in fact it is not so difficult to appreciate unique glimpses between a building and the other with the ancient water descents for boats. Even today there are numerous restaurants located on stilts where you can taste local fish dishes prepared according to tradition.

The beach of Chianalea, the stretch of coast of gravel and pebbles, offers a small beach and is almost entirely occupied by a bathing establishment where it will be possible to rent equipment such as deckchairs and umbrellas. Alternatively, there are thin strips made up of cliffs and pebbles where you can stop during your holiday in Scilla.

The sea is crystal clear and populated by a discreet marine fauna that can be admired with a mask and snorkel near the rocks. Ideal place if you want to practice snorkeling .

  1. Review of AUGUSTO AUGUSTO 4.0/5 IT, 3 August 2017

    Piccola spiaggia di un suggestivo borgo di pescatori. Lido ben organizzato, con ristorante annesso. Spiaggia pietrosa ma pulita. Panorama mozzafiato sullo Stretto di Messina.
