Tropea in the online camera is one of the most important tourist centers of Calabria due to its natural landscapes, sea beauties and historical monuments. It is customary to call the city in a live broadcast the „pearl” of the Tyrrhenian Sea, because it is the local beaches that have repeatedly been awarded the Blue Flag international award for the purity of the water.
The beaches are the main attraction of the resort in the online camera.

For divers, there is a great opportunity to see a variety of representatives of the local flora, and fans of kitesurfing and windsurfing are favored by sea winds.
The Costa degli Dei is 55 km long with white sandy beaches interspersed with sharp rocks that create miniature coves accessible only by boat or on foot. Its middle name – Costa Bella received thanks to the picturesque view of the Aeolian Islands, which are located just 60 km from the coast.
