Calabria is the most southern point of the boot, to a large extent still unaffected by the mass tourism. Miles-long coasts alternating with white sandy beaches, lonely rocky bays, steep cliffs which dive into a sea of many shades of blue and turquoise colors, constantly changing landscapes and millennium-old history make this region of Italy very special.

Characteristic for his region is the 800 km long coastline, surrounded by the Ionian and Tyrrhenian sea and its hinterland. Although the sea seems ever present in Calabria, it is also a mountainous region with three main mountain ranges: the Pollino mountain in the North, the Sila in the Centre, and the Aspromonte in the South, all being unique with their own flora and fauna.

Due to the geographical position, the distance between the sea and the mountains is hardly ever more than 40 km, almost ideal to combine a swim vacation with excursions in the almost unspoiled nature.

The Tyrrhenian coast, also called “Coast of the Gods”, because of its delightful landscapes, the clear blue sea, the colourful vegetation and the always bright blue sky begins shortly behind Pizzo (about 30 km south of the airport of Lamezia Terme) reaching Tropea – the gem of the Tyrrhenian sea, Capo Vaticano and Nicotera.

Calabria is a place where you can start your day with taking a swim on the fantastic beaches and end it with watching a spectacular sunset. Anyone who loves the sea will appreciate the mild climate and the clear sea with its magnificent blue colours and its clearness which has been awarded the Blue Flag of Europe for several years.

Between Pizzo and Nicotera you will find everything that makes up a perfect seaside holiday: beautiful coasts white sandy beaches, lonely bays and lots of unspoiled nature.
The ideal bathing time is from May to the middle of July and again in September and October, when the beaches are almost empty.

Tourism, however, does not only mean to make excursions, to take a bath in the sea, to visit landscapes, cities and art works. It also means to come in close contact with other cultures, to understand them and learn to love them.

The people in Calabria might appear to be quite reserved, which changes however very quickly with the first personal contact and you will appreciate their infinite hospitality and warmness. When you get to know the country and its people, you will take home with you many beautiful, long-lasting memories: the friendliness and warmness of the people, the mild climate, the beautiful landscapes, the marvelous beaches and the clear sea – a part of Italy full of sun and sea to be discovered!
