Calabria tirrenica

Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria stretches from the municipality of Tortora (CS) to the city of Reggio Calabria, a real "watershed" on the Strait. From north to south, very different landscapes alternate, grouped according to the peculiarities of the territory.

For those arriving from the north on the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, welcome is the "Riviera dei Cedri" Regional Marine Park, which owes its name to the cultivation of an indigenous citrus fruit, unique in the world: the Cedar of Calabria PDO (Santa Maria del Cedro, Blue Flag). To this stretch of coast belong the two small islands in the middle of the sea of Tyrrhenian Calabria: Dino Island (Praia a Mare, Green Flag and Blue Flag) and Cirella (Diamante, Blue Flag). Moving on, we discover another enchanting area of Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, the Regional Marine Park "Scogli d'Isca" (Amantea). On the same stretch of coastline are the two Blue Flags of Tortora and San Nicola Arcella, with the famous Arcomagno Beach.

Continuing southwards we come to the "Costa degli Dei", a postcard-perfect stretch of the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, where one can enjoy fiery sunsets over the Aeolian Islands and unmissable phenomena such as the so-called "Kiss of the Sun at Stromboli". This stretch of the Tyrrhenian Sea in Calabria falls within the province of Vibo Valentia, alternating long stretches of unspoilt beach, with the Green Flag of Nicotera, with fine sandy coves such as Paradiso del Sub (Zambrone) and Parghelia Beach, and the craggy Green Flag cliffs of Capo Vaticano (Ricadi). The "Pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea"? Tropea, Blue Flag among The Most Beautiful Villages in Italy.

Finally, the "Costa Viola" is the southernmost part of the Tyrrhenian coast of Calabria, in the province of Reggio Calabria. Here the sea is open and deep and the water takes on a characteristic purplish colour. It is the sea of legends and of the optical illusion known as the "Morgana Fairy Effect", which seems to unite the two shores of the Strait: from the Green Flag of Marinella di Palmi, to the fishing village of Chianalea di Scilla (the "Venice of the South").
