    Beautiful beach with stunning view but could be quite crowded
    The main Tropea beach offers two undeniable assets. First of them is a wonderful view of the city and its specific little church on the rock called Santa Maria dell’Isola. In fact, the whole coastline is tremendous. The other asset is a shadow caused by the rocky hill right above you. On the other hand the beach can be quite crowded (especially during the weekends) and count with the paid parking in case you are coming by car. If you don't mind walking, you can definitely find a non-paid parking place somewhere nearby or in Tropea. Just be careful - when you park by the blue line, you need to pay. There is also a small bistro with coffee and snacks. For a less crowded beach (not applicable for the weekends) head for Spiaggia della Contura just behind the Tropea port. Or in case you can travel by car or train you can visit Michelino beach in Parghelia or a very long one in Marina di Zambrone.

    Breath taking views.
    Visited for a day trip when we stayed in Amantea. About 1 hr drive. Breathtaking views, though the beach is not sandy but rocky. Very busy tourist area with prices to match. Happy we had the chance to visit.

    Give it a full day
    Tropea Beach was my one regret from our Italy trip. Not that we went - that I didn't give us enough time there. I'm used to American beaches, which typically deserve as little time as possible and make for a miserable day. Not Tropea. Perfect weather, no boomboxes, no misbehaving kids, a couple of topless women, a view that can't be beat, crystal clear waters, and scores of fish that swim around your ankles (and occasionally take a little nibble). I wish I'd had an entire day to camp out there with my book and some snacks. This is what beaches are supposed to be.

    Famous for red onions and fish
    Tropea Beach is quite fascinating. It's on the coast of Calabria, where delicious red onions are grown, which are unique. The red onions can be consumed, made with vegetable broth and pasta. The restaurant is popular for serving red onions, in an osteria-style Italian restaurant. Calabria is the toe of Italy, in the Peninsula's southwest, adjacent to Sicily. Sicily is the Mediterranean's island Tropea is famous for fish and red onions.

    Beautiful sandy beach’s and clear blue sea and views.
    Excellent braces in Tropea. You can either access via steps from the town on the cliff or via road. Reasonable amount of cheap parking available for a few nice beach side testaurants. Clean beach with chairs and umbrellas available. Easy access with no steps from the car park in most areas. Definitely worth a visit. Would recommend the town and the beaches.

    Beautiful Tropea!
    Tropea, a charming, pretty town with beautiful beaches and clear, azure waters. The town has a ton of character, a good variety of nice, fairly reasonable restaurants and shops. We planned to stay 4 nights but stayed 7. Love, love, love Tropea!

The beach is small, bodies everywhere but it is spectacular edged on one side by the Sanctuary Santa Maria dell: Isola and the cliffs and houses high above in old-town Tropea. Clear blue-green water top it all off.

No better than many other beaches in Calabria, and Tropea overwhelmed and ruined by coach tours even in early May. Avoid.

We found very good restaurants here, and the sea is enchantngly clear.
Ig you’re vacationing in Tropea, you can enjoy excellent pizza, and don’t miss the opportunity for breakfast at one of the small cafès (try a small near Pizzerai antique - where is the best pizza in Tropea).
