The Calabrian coast by the Tyrrhenian Sea offers a succession of beaches and high cliffs that look over fairly clean waters, due to the low level of industrial development in this region. It is as yet untouched by any encroaching seaside resorts, and while such developments may have the advantage of offering more services, they lack the kind of breathtaking views seen here. Stop off in the seaside town of Scalea, with its fine sandy beach, and in Diamante, a colourful village whose wall frescoes almost make it a work of art in itself. Further south, the charming village of Tropea is built on a rock on the seafront, with 17th and 18th century palaces overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Here, the coastline is broken up into little beaches that make it one of the best loved seaside destinations in Calabria.
