To discover the region of ‘nduja in the right way, here are 5 things you simply must see in Calabria on the Ionian and Tyrrhenian Coast.

South Coast: the nicest beaches to see in Ionian Calabria

Calabria, on its Ionian side, stretches for about 300 km and is characterised by its transparent sea, white sand beaches, jagged coves, seaside towns and important archaeological sites. Going along the southern part of the region, there are many interesting places that will surprise every tourist with the most wide-ranging peculiarities.

Of these, the beaches of Ionian Calabria are the real stars. Awarded with Blue Flags, bearing witness to the quality of the service and the water, here are some of the most beautiful:

1. The dreamlike beaches of Soverato

Soverato, called the Pearl of the Ionian Sea, is one of the best-known locations in Ionian Calabria. A seaside town in the Province of Catanzaro, it is famous for its golden beach and turquoise sea. The seashore extends over 2 kilometres and boasts resorts with facilities, shops, bars and restaurants.
Soverato is also a city rich in history and culture. The town is home to The Church of Maria Santissima Addolorata and the Norman-Swabian Castle.
If you are staying in the area, you can simply relax at the VOI Floriana Resort, in a handy area for getting to various locations along the Ionian Coast.

2. The culture and beauty of Cirò Marina

Cirò Marina is one of the best-known towns on the Ionian Coast of Calabria, because it combines culture, beauty and art. Located in the Province of Crotone, its beach is about 6 km long, with fine clear sand and a blue sea. Its fame among the towns of Ionian Calabria is also down to its wine, which originates from Ancient Greece: Cirò DOC [Denomination of Controlled Origin] wine.
