Island Dino, Praia A Mare

#1 of 34 in Nature in Calabria
Must see · Island · Nature / Park
The larger of Calabria's two islands, Island Dino once hosted a temple dedicated to Venus. Once the scene of dramatic battles and pirate raids, the island has passed through the hands of many different political powers throughout history. The small island has only 3 km (1.8 mi) of rocky coastline, none of which is beach. However, there are plenty of other interesting sites, including a tower of Norman origin, six different marine grottos best visited by boat, and a number of walking trails with lovely views. Check in town for information about island excursions and tours. Put Island Dino on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Praia A Mare online road trip planner.
