The beaches

The Costa degli Dei has a wide choice of beautiful white sand beaches surrounded by cliffs. "Lido Grotticelle" consists in a series of coves of fine sand interspersed with cliffs shaped varied that decorate this beautiful piece of paradise. It takes its name from a cave located just below the promontory of Capo Vaticano. This beach, characterized by a high turnout tourism, can be reached by sea or by small steep paths beaches of "Praia the Focu" and spaces to achieve the peace of mind. This beach is reachable with our Shuttle-Bus in 5 minutes. Here you will find at your disposal beaches equipped with sun - umbrellas, deck chairs and other services like pedal boats, canoes, motor boats and many other water sports.

The beaches of “Praia i Focu" are located about 300 meters from our resort, can be reached only by sea from the beach Groticelle. It is a beautiful beach of white sand nestled between the cliffs overhanging the Vaticano Cape, which are interspersed with splendid coves giving life to these picturesque beaches. The cliffs, which surround the beach on three sides to well protect from the wind, from here the name, in the summer the beach becomes hot, while in winter the temperature is so high that it is always possible to take a bath. The sea is beautiful, turquoise, crystal clear waters and beautiful, ideal for wimming lovers but also for diving lovers, with waters rich in plant life and fauna. Opposite at the beach there is also the impressive rock of Mantineo, whose name is linked to an ancient legend between sailors.

The surroundings

 

Tropea

Wonderful place in Calabria. Great sandy beaches, old town, steep streets, old churches. Tropea is perhaps the most famous destination in all of Calabria. The highlight is the Santa Maria dell'Isola,
built on a rock with sea on three sides and a beach on one. Ringed by cliffs and wonderful sandy beaches. The main town, Tropea, easily wins the contest for prettiest town on the Calabria Tyrrhenian coast, its old palazzi built in simple golden stone on an elevation above the sea.

In Tropea's harmonious warren of lanes, seek out the old Norman Cattedrale, whose interior displays a couple of unexploded US bombs from World War II, with grateful prayer to the Madonna attached to each. From belvedere at the bottom of the main square, Piazza Ercole, the church and Benedictine monastery of Santa Maria della Isola glistens on a rocky pormontory above an aquamarine sea. Stroll out to visit the church on a path lined wiht fishermen's caves. Of Basilian origin, the church was remodeled in Gothic style, then given another face-lift after an earthquake in 1905. The interior has an 18th-century nativity and some fragments of medieval tombs.

 

Pizzo

Pizzo is one of the most renowned towns in the Vibo Valentia province on the western coast of Calabria. The town is situated on a steep cliff overlooking the gulf of Santa Eufemia. Pizzo and the province to which it belongs to, Vibo Valentia, is famous for it scenic rugged coast, long sandy beaches, pleasant climate and the best ice cream in the world. ‘Il Tartufo’ was invented here in Pizzo to honor the visit of Prince.

 

Scilla

Scilla (pronounced sheella) is a stunningly-located fishing village in the Calabria region, in the south of Italy, on the toe of Italy's boot. A rocky spur topped with an ancient fortress separates two narrow strips of seashore hemmed in by steep hillsides. Scilla is squeezed into this restricted and picturesque landscape and it is an unforgettable sight.

Scilla is straight out of myths; it is traditionally the home of the fearsome monster Scylla who, along with Charybdis (over the sea towards Sicily) guarded the narrow Strait of Messina and menaced Odysseus / Ulysses as he sailed by. According to the town's tourist information leaflet "the origins of the castle date back to Ulysses". Even if you don't believe the mythological connections, the geography of Scilla's castle on a commanding outcrop guarding the entrance to this important shipping route must have made it an important site for millennia. Today Scilla is a pretty little town where visitors can relax on the beach, visit the castle or wander through the old fishing settlement taking photographs.

 

Reggio Calabria

Reggio is the capital of the province of Reggio di Calabria and the biggest and most important city of Calabria. The city was struck by earthquakes several times and thus lost many of its historical buildings. From the boulevard Lungomare you look out over the sea with Sicily easily recognizable on the other side of the water. City life is mainly to be found at the Corso Garibaldi, parallel to the boulevard. The duomo was rebuilt in the 20th century after an earthquake. Along both sides of the stairs there are two statues of the saints Paolo and Stefano, made by Franceso Jerace, who was also responsible for the marble pulpit in the interior. For most visitors the two Bronzi di Riace are the main reason to visit Reggio. These statues measure over 2 metres and were found in sea near the village of Riace over 30 years ago. Also other halls in the museum are worth a visit. You’ll find artefacts from the Greek period to paintings of Mattia Preti, a Calabrian artist.

 

Aeolian Islands

With good weather we recommend you to make a trip by boat to the Aeolian Islands. These Islands are positioned between Calabria and Sicily, and belong to the province of Messina (Sicily) at about 60 km from the Calabrian coast. On clear days you can see all seven of them very well from Capo Vaticano. The best known of them all is Stromboli which was the setting of the movie Stromboli in 1950, directed by Roberto Rossellini with Ingrid Bergman. The island has the typical shape of a crater and is quite an active volcano. Approximately every 40 minutes there’s an eruption, and especially at night this offers a spectacular sight. Therefore in summer special boat excursions are organized to see this spectacle as close as possible.

But also the other islands have their own character. Lipari for example is the largest island with a beautiful ancient town and splendid nature. When reaching the island Vulcano you have to get used to the smell. This island has sulphur springs which are very good for the skin. Just the smell of it makes the step to truly dive in a little hard. Salina is an island with salt production, Panarea is the island for the rich and the famous. Alicudi and Filicudi are really tiny and are positioned most to the west.
