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.

  • This island overlooking the shores of Calabria is a real paradise on Earth. You can make an excursion to cool between the different types of Mediterranean vegetation among which the famous mirto dell'isola dino. was the 1960s owned by Gianni Agnelli, which contributed to the increase in tourism. For two years the municipality of Praia a Mare.

  • The island in front of the promenade and with those beaches is nothing short of breathtaking. The sunset is opposite the beach and summer has nothing to envy to Caribbean destinations. Even in winter is a show and the area is pleasant walks, and with summer also outdoor sports on the beach in front of the island. the area is well equipped for every kind of reception.
