Where the sea is so blue.. head to southern Italy!

Imagine walking on a soft white sandy beach and to swim in a crystal clear water where you can see fish swimming near you.. well this is southern Italy!

There is not much to say here. These photos speak for themselves.

You can get fabulous Caribbean-like beaches in Italy with crystal clear water which look just like a swimming pool.

The beauty of the landscape and its beaches can be breathtaking. This is a beach in Tropea, in Calabria.

I have fond memories of these places. When I was a child my parents traveled extensively through Italy and we met lovely and friendly local people. Italy is still a place that’s very different from region to region as it was only united just over 150 years ago. Every region has its own dialect and customs and they can have very different mentalities. Their style of cooking can change vastly. The biggest difference is from the north to the south where even the climate is very different.

Tropea is a magical place, with its soft sandy beaches, rock caves and ancient buildings.

So I can only say, visit these places if you get a chance. You will love them!

    Hi Alida,
    Oh how beautiful! Your photos are like a travel log, just magical!
    I would love to see Italy, and especially this area, as my mom’s family is from Calabria as you know. The water and the beach are pristine! Not too crowed but still private to a point. The scenery is awesome. Thank you for sharing these photos with us…Have a wonderful day!
    Dottie 🙂
