There a hidden beach in the South of Italy that is unknown even to most Italians. It’s on the North part of Calabria, the last Region before Sicily.
This beach is part of a city called San Nicola Arcella, and the only way to get there is by a 1,5km rocky walk. It’s very light climbing, that I’ve done with two small dogs.
Before getting to the main Arch there are two smaller ones, where you can see the sun beams streaming through.

The last Arch is without a doubt the most jaw dropping one. The sun shines through it lighting just a part of the beach.
Thankfully it’s still July and the beach wasn’t crowded, in August is really full of people, boats and jet skis!
A lot of people choose to jump from the top part of the arch into the water. It’s a long fall! Not for the faint hearted. I settled at just enjoying the sunset.
