Things to do

-Beaches. Capo Vaticano is considered one of the best destinations on Calabria’s Costa Degli Dei (Coast of the Gods), famous for its unspoiled white beaches, rock formations and hidden coves that can be reached only by foot or boat. At Capo Vaticano you’ll have a range of fantastic beaches to pick from, framed by a tall granite headland and boasting views of the Stromboli volcano out to sea.

-Boat trips. A range of charter tours are offered from nearby Tropea. You could head along the Costa Degli Dei, or set off for the Aeolian Islands and the legendary Stromboli. There are also regular trips to Sicily from Tropea. For something more local you could rent a pedal or motorboat to explore the beautiful indented shoreline around Capo Vaticano.

-Outdoor activities. If you arrive here in the cooler months of the year Capo Vaticano is an excellent base for long walks and mountain biking. The coast offers dramatic rock forms and breathtaking views, while just in from the sea the landscape becomes steep and covered with vineyards and thick, verdant woodland. In this small area alone there are more than 300 different plant species.

-Food and drink. Often used as a seasoning in local dishes is the Tropea red onion, which as the name suggests is grown exclusively on the farmland next to the coast here. Calabrian cuisine is known for its spiciness, which is down to the inclusion of the hot pepperoncino in stews and pasta dishes. Olive oil and citrus are also staples in this part of Italy.

-Reggio Calabria. One of the best reasons to make the drive down to this city on the very tip of Italy’s boot is to the see the stunning Riace Bronzes. These two ancient Greek sculptures date back 2,500 years and are housed in the Museo Nazionale della Magna Grecia and were discovered in 1972 by a tourist on a scuba diving trip.

But overall a great location within walking distance of resturants and beach. Great views of sunset over the ocean from the sunny balcony. The owners were lovely and friendly and very helpful. We had a very pleasent Stay here!

The accommodation is spacious and although slightly worn is good for a week or more visit. The people around including the amazing beach are very friendly and helpful. and you can travel by boats to visit the islands. Also there are many restaurants around, and we found ourselves going to La campagnola most nights. We enjoyed our stay here and would be happy to visit again. Thank you
