“Calabria is beautiful!”
Review of Grotticelle beach

Grotticelle beach
Reviewed 17 July 2014 via mobile

Calabria is beautiful and this beach is a testimony of that. Chrystal clear not unlike what you expect to find in Sardinia but everything is cheaper. There are more than one management the one we appreciated the most, fixed prices that don't change depending on your accent is called "Onde Blu" blue wave. People are nice and the potential for this region is great.

Beautiful, glistening bay with seas crystalline like in Sardinia. This is a beach to take the car to and visit. Really beautiful here and we only spent a couple of hours laying out in the public side of the beach, not paying for lettini, but very happy and a great swimming location. Gorgeous beach!

We have lived near the beach now for over 4 years & we never tire of it, whatever season it holds something really special, if you haven't visited Grotticelle yet do so best place in the world (our opinion)!!!

Lovely beach coves but can get busy on a sunny day. Wonderful in the morning when it was empty! The car park was a tad congested when we tried to re visit in the afternoon!

We stayed 2 weeks in the area and went every day to the beach. Admitted, there are jellyfish in the bay early in the morning, but the various teams are cleaning this up rather quickly. Occasional jellyfish during the day. The currents some time bring rubbish from the open sea. This is also dealt with rather efficiently.
One downside: the beach chairs are really chairs and not, like you see in the Adriatic or in Sicily, sunbeds (they're available, but at a surcharge). Hope they will deal with that in the coming years.
