Write Calabria, read sea: your summer holiday is here. Almost 800 km of coastline await you, with features to suit all tastes, from fine sand to sheer cliffs, overlooking one of the cleanest seas in the world, which from the north to the south of the region boasts 19 Blue Flags, 20 Green Flags (beaches for families with children) and the Marine Protected Area of Capo Rizzuto, in the province of Crotone.
The Calabrian sea offers some Caribbean stretches, with seabeds that evoke heavenly names, such as the Paradiso del Sub beach in Zambrone (VV). Each stretch of coastline has different characteristics, making it unique, linked to the hinterland of which it is an expression.
From the Tyrrhenian to the Ionian Sea, the "Land between the Two Seas" offers different scenarios, recalling elements of the territory, all waiting to be discovered: Riviera dei Cedri (Upper Tyrrhenian Sea of Cosenza), Costa degli Dei (Middle Tyrrhenian Sea of Vibo Valentia), Costa Viola (Lower Tyrrhenian Sea of Reggio Emilia), Riviera dei Gelsomini (Lower Ionian Sea of Reggio Emilia), Riviera degli Angeli and Costa degli Aranci (Middle Ionian Sea of Catanzaro), Costa dei Saraceni (Upper Ionian Sea of Crotone), Costa degli Achei (Upper Ionian Sea of Cosenza).
If you love marine life and are travelling with children, don't miss the hatching of Caretta Caretta turtles along the Middle and Lower Ionian coast in August (unique in peninsular Italy), the observation of hippocampi in the Bay of Soverato (CZ) and the passage of dolphins towards the Strait.
