Tropea: Italy’s Best Beach


Tropea has known the world over for its breathtaking beach. White sand, crystal clear water, spectacular rocky cliff, and a lot of history. Tropea beach, located on the tip of Italy’s “boot” and washed by the Tyrrhenian Sea, is a mind-blowing place not to miss if you are planning to visit Italy this summer.

Each year national statistics list this beach in Tropea (Calabria region) among the top-10 beaches of the country.

The secret sauce of the place is the Tropea sand that has very thick grains, or micro-pebbles, that make the water incredibly beautiful and transparent. Walking on this unique sand is a great pleasure per se.

To make things even more intriguing, the beach is located just next to the historical Tropea town built on a dramatic rocky cliff measuring about 45 meters above sea level. What a spectacular backdrop for Italy’s purest sea!
