Tropea: Italy’s Best Beach


Tropea is 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 the 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 the sea level. What a spectacular backdrop for the Italy’s purest sea!
