Tropea beach

Tropea is a charming seaside resort on the Costa degli Dei, on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, which every year welcomes thousands of tourists from all over the world with numerous services, such as hotels and airbnb, and restaurants where typical restaurants by the sea prepare dishes according to the local culinary tradition. The beach of Tropea is one of the most famous in the Calabria region, and also one of the most immortalized and discussed on social networks. It is in fact to be considered a destination with high attendance precisely because of the quantity of tourists who each year choose Tropea as a destination for their beach holidays. The shore of the city beaches is narrow and composed of white, fine-grained sand, rocks emerging from the water and bathed in a crystalline sea where you can practice scuba diving and snorkeling and admire the many species that live on this stretch of coast. The beaches are charming and well distributed between public beaches and sections given in concession to the bathing establishments ; at the latter it is possible to rent sunbeds, deckchairs, umbrellas and water sports equipment. The Rotonda Beach in Tropea, also known as Le Roccette, is one of the most internationally photographed, it is in fact the symbolic beach of Tropea . Composed of a narrow and long beach of white sand and washed by a clear sea. Behind it the houses built overlooking the sea that seem to be suspended in the air. Spiaggia del Cannone, also called U Cannuni, is the quietest and least frequented of the Calabrian town. It is located between the tourist port and the Scoglio di San Lorenzo and is composed – like the other city beaches – of white sand and rocks where you can discover the marvelous sea beds of this part of the Calabrian coast. The Beach 'A Linguata di Tropea is the most frequented by young people and the comrades of friends who can play beach volleyball and rent pedal boats to admire the Coast of the Gods from the sea. White sand, transparent sea bottoms and countless services nearby are its strengths. The Grotta del Palombaro Beach : located between the Scogli della Ringa and the Michelino beach, it is a small stretch of coast composed of both sand and rocks and little frequented. Reachable only by sea. The Michelino di Parghelia beach : it is one of the most characteristic beaches on the outskirts of Tropea in the Parghelia area. Ideal place for snorkeling. The Passo Cavalieri beach located on the west side of Tropea, is one of the largest in size and the one that has the highest number of beach resorts. The beach of Marina dell'Isola is a small beach located near Isola Bella, a short distance from the city center. Easy to reach and for this reason always very crowded in the summer months. The beach of Mare Piccolo located between the Rotonda beach and the beach of Marina dell'Isola. It shares with it the sand and the granulometric composition of the sand. The beach of L'Occhiale composed almost completely of stones and rocks owes its name to the particular physical conformation of the beach. Accessible via the steps in the Campo di Sotto area .

  1. Review of Mara Mara 4.0/5 IT, 5 July 2019

    Una delle spiagge più belle della Calabria ma troppo caotica. Meglio andarci a maggio oppure settembre

  2. Review of Marco Marco 5.0/5 IT, 3 July 2019

    La spiaggia principale di Tropea, quella alla destra del promontorio con il convento, è libera e fra le più affollate della città. Basta però spostarsi leggermente dal centro, sia ad est che ovest, e si trovano spiagge con stabilimenti balneari e con maggiore calma.
    Consiglio la spiaggia di Michelino, piccolina ma meravigliosa.

  3. Review of Riccardo Lenzi Riccardo Lenzi 5.0/5 IT, 27 June 2019

    Si fa veramente fatica a trovare un tratto di spiaggia libera dove potersi sdraiare.
    La spiaggia è comunque meravigliosa e caratteristica.
