Isola Di Dino, Praia A Mare

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
The larger of Calabria's two islands, Isola Di Dino once hosted a temple dedicated to Venus. Once the scene of dramatic battles and pirate raids, the island has passed through the hands of many different political powers throughout history. The small island has only 3 km (1.8 mi) of rocky coastline, none of which is beach. However, there are plenty of other interesting sites, including a tower of Norman origin, six different marine grottos best visited by boat, and a number of walking trails with lovely views. Check in town for information about island excursions and tours. Put Isola Di Dino and other Praia A Mare attractions into our Praia A Mare tour planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Gorgeous water, beach not crowded even though it was July. Recommend a boat trip around the island; There are some caves when the boat comes in, in which the source of brightness is the water itself, azzurrisima and crystal clear, illuminate panels and lets see plenty of fish by silvery. A truly beautiful place.

  • The sea is truly amazing in this area, between the island of dino and the arcomagno is the best part. exactly opposite the island is full of crowded Beaches then on shore could sometimes not be extremely clean. We took the boat ride around the island of Dino, 5 euro, we entered the grotto, really gorgeous

  • Singular islet near the beach of praia, characterizes the crystal clear waterfront, great to circumnavigate for tourists who want to explore without boat an islet. To photograph!
