Zambrone is a small, coastal community in the Calabria region of southern Italy. Benefiting from a warm climate and the beautiful blue waters of the Mediterranean sea, Zambrone is rich in beaches, and makes the perfect choice for holidays in Italy.
Enjoy the beautiful beaches in Zambrone
The coastline of Zambrone features many long stretches of sand, which are for the most part deserted. These family friendly beaches are mostly undiscovered by tourists – meaning that holidays in Calabria offer you the perfect blend of a beach holiday, and a rural getaway! The beaches are dotted with dramatic rocky outcrops, and the hilly terrain further inland will appeal to hikers and nature lovers alike.
If you are looking for a little excitement however, you’ll find that in Calabria it is never too far away. The area boasts a number of opportunities for water sports, such as sailing, scuba diving and wind surfing.
Picturesque surroundings and plenty to explore
The town of Zambrone itself sits on the side of a beautiful promontory, where olive groves and fruit trees face out over the sea. Across the water it is possible to see the volcanic island of Stromboli. Boat tours operate in the area, with some going out at night, so that tourists are able to see the volcanic lava glowing in the darkness.
Zambrone features a number of museums, galleries and sites of archaeological interest. You might even like to try some of the local cuisine – the region is known for its seafood in particular, and Calabrian delicacies are served in a traditional style at Zambrone’s good range of restaurants.
Holidays in Calabria offer tourists the opportunity to explore a wealth of historic towns and villages. Dotted across the picturesque, rocky coastline, visitors can explore nearby towns such as Catanzaro and Vibo Valentia. Many of these settlements date back to the 7th century BC, and the ancient Greek colony of Hipponion. Holidaymakers can admire the ancient acropolis at Vibo Valentia or visit the breath-taking cathedral of Santa Maria Maggiore e San Leoluca. Take a trip to the castle at Pizzo, or just relax in one of the many bars and restaurants in the region.
