Isola Di Dino, Praia A Mare

4.6
#1 of 12 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 .

  • Dino Island, is an island now abandoned for years but its natural caves, which can be reached easily by sea are a sight especially for the deep blue water color! To visit or pedal boat or guided tour! deserve!

  • If you are in the area is not to be missed on a boat trip around this wild and uninhabited islet to discover different caves and curiosity that dwell in this place. The Lydians organise revving a bit hasty (more or less half an hour for a tour of the island and an hour and a half lacking for the trip around the island and Arcomagno), but it's still worthwhile. We have opted for an island tour and visit the nearby Arcomagno and, taking a dip in those crystal clear waters, is an absolute must. Attention to the week of August because it is packed out.

  • Maybe August is not the best time, too many, and I mean too many boats, yachts, boats, pedal boats, canoes ...
