Planning your next summer vacation to Italy? Keep this enchanting Italian beach in Calabria in mind if you’re planning on visiting Italy’s southern coast. Calabria has beautiful seaside locations and this is definitely one. Le Castella, at Isola Capo Rizzuto, is a castle that sits right on a little island off the coast of the Crotone region.
The castle can be reached by walking along a path or wall built over the sea. It often hosts events and exhibitions and is the symbol of the area. One of the best views of the castle can be had off the beach nearby where it is amazing to see bathers swimming, apparently oblivious to the magnificant backdrop. The are is part of the Isola Capo Rizzuto marine reserve.
