Italy: Calabria, its beaches and its seas

Source: Articlesbase

One of the main attractions of Calabria is the sea, and many tourists, both Italian and foreign, decide to visit this region in summer to enjoy its large and picturesque beaches and crystalline sea. In fact, summer, in the southernmost Italian region, is much longer than elsewhere in Italy. As a consequence, tourists who decide to spend their summer holidays in Calabria are likely to spend unforgettable days on the beach not only in June, July or August, but also in autumn and spring.
Furthermore, Calabria is one of the few Italian regions, together with Sicily, Apulia and Basilicata, overlooking two seas: the Tyrrhenian to the west and the Ionian to the east. The region has more than 700 km of shores, offering an amazing views of the sea. Some people, at the beach, might prefer the large expenses of fine sand, while others could be fascinated by rugged and rocky coastlines with cliffs rising steeply from the sea. However, in Calabria you do not need to choose between these two options: with its varied landscapes this region is able to satisfy everyone’s desires. In this respect, when you visit this land, it would be a pity to spend your entire holiday in the same place, without visiting the neighborhood. In order to first discover, and then fall in love with the beauties of this region, the best thing to do would be to go through all of its different types of coast, from the long sandy beach to the small inlet embellished by rocks, and to swim into different seas. Moreover, Calabria’s inland territory is mainly mountainous, and this results in a unique landscape, where the waters meld with the mountains, and in some regions, notably in the Tyrrhenian coast, mountains rise steeply from the sea. A breathtaking sight, that you may not admire anywhere else. On the other side, the coasts on the Ionian Sea are characterised by large and wild expanses of fine sand. Usually those beaches are less busy with tourists, and for this reason they are considered even more beautiful and fascinating.
Calabria’s environment does not lack of beauty, which is an essential element to love and appreciate its beaches. However, they should offer something more: first of all, they must be clean; secondly, they must welcome tourists in the right way. In this respect, Calabria has a lot to offer: with the four blue flags that received last year (the blue flag is an important award bestowed to the most welcoming and cleanest beach in Italy), Calabria has been ranked third among the regions of Southern Italy, after Campania and Apulia, for hospitality and cleanness. Spend your holidays in a hotel or in a resort in Calabria, where guests are welcomed in the best way: you will realize that in person!
