  • Amazing point with a unique view of the landscape from 60 meters terrace high up to the cliff!! Is awesome nature and you can see till the end of the boot and Sicily!! Azimg view and place!! 🇮🇹🤙❤️
  • There are free parking spots (white zone) but the way down and especially up the cliff is very exhausting - good workout though. Pedalo rental costs 10 Euros an hour, plus 5-10 Euros for every addition hour. The water temperature is about 2-3 degrees lower in comparison to the water temperature in Spiaggia di Tropea. There is a private beach area where you can rent a deckchair and there is a public beach area too. The public one is actually nicer.
