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.

  • Quiet, uncrowded, clear water. Establishments in various price ranges discreetly equipped, ability to get to the island with the pedal. There are also stretches of beach. Little sand and prevalence of stones, so bring shoes. Time spent in Praia was one of the most beautiful and memorable days of my vacation in Calabria.

  • Accessible by private boat and pedalo boats organized. You can visit the caves, stop off and swim. Recommended in particular the Blue Grotto, the most beautiful and that reminds one of Capri! If you are on holiday there is absolutely worth going at least once.

  • We circumnavigated the island aboard a boat, cheap price, visit a bit hasty, usually at other places you stop for a bathroom, here no, sin.
