Riviera dei Cedri, the best kept secret to discover

Framed between the only two Calabrian islands – the Dino island and the Cirella island – the Riviera dei Cedri boasts an incomparable nature with breathtaking beaches and coasts in the shadow of the Pollino National Park, villages rich in history and traditions, a ancient food and wine but capable of renewing itself.



A diverse environment stretching from the sea side to the Pollino National Park, 800 meters over the sea, including the old town and its rich archaeological museum.
Praia a Mare


Wide beaches stretch out in front of the beautiful Dino Island – the biggest in Calabria – and its colourful grottos. The timeless charm of the Fiuzzi Castle and Tower. A walk by the lively central boulevard and the sunny promenade.
San Nicola Arcella


A bay of crystal-clear waters, enchanted coves and extraordinary naturalistic beauties, as the iconic Arco Magno, shortlisted by UNESCO. A fascinating old town, with its alleys filled with tradition and breathtaking views. Enogastronomia, culture and leisure. And there’s much more to it. These are the ingredients making of San Nicola Arcella one of the top-class tourist destination in Calabria.


The Talao Tower is the signature monument of the town and overlooks a long beach up to the iconic Ajnella reef and its marvellous grottos, coves and a mysterious fresh-water waterfall. And then the medieval old town, one of the most beautiful in Calabria, with its alleys, squares, monuments and picture postcard views.
Santa Maria del Cedro


It is the land of Cedro, hence the name and the dedicated museum. Furthermore, the Laos Archeological Park is part of a significant historical heritage, including the Abatemarco Castle and the so called Impresa Prison.


It is one of the few ghost-towns in Italy, with an amphitheatre hosting one of the main musical events in Calabria (the Peperoncino Jazz Festival) and the fascinating vestiges and sanctuaries towering over the delightful new village along the coastline. The little island named after the town adds an exotic twist.


The city of murals and chili peppers (‘peperoncino’), where getting lost in the allies and its bars and typical shops is a pleasure. The promenade is both vibrant and romantic, the sandy beaches are golden, and the Corvino natural park is like a marvellous green heart.
Parco Pollino


There is more to the beautiful sea and beaches in the Riviera dei Cedri. A stone throw away it is astonishingly easy to reach a two-thousand meters peak in the Pollino National Park, the biggest in Italy, and immerse yourself in the nature and its rhythm, traditions and iconic vegetation as the Pino Loricato, while enjoying enogastronomia and sport.
