Isola Di Dino, Praia A Mare

4.6
#1 of 27 in Nature in Calabria
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 on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Praia A Mare online road trip planner .

  • Located near the locality Fiuzzi in Praia a Mare, Dino Island is an uninhabited island. There are two caves that can be visited on a paddle boat, the blue cave and the cave of the lion. Recommended pass.

  • Island to which you can reach by boat either, given the short distance that separates it from the Mainland. Recommended the circumnavigation of the island with Paddle boats which also allows the visit of the caves.

  • Incredible place
  • Party from San Nicola Arcella (Arco great) and reached there by walking the beach leading to the island of Dino. The peace of mind. Once there it is worth around the island or booking a pedal boat or swimming (for lovers and most opinionated, but never alone) to see the lion's Cave, where it is possible to dive from the rocks, and the Blue Grotto, accessible by sea. It's always a pleasure to go back.

  • Is a very evocative of the alto Tirreno Cosentino. In this place I was because having heard and finding myself passing stopped. I have to say it was worth every penny. The place is very nice. I recommend your position of passage to na trip.
