Map of the itinerary from Arco Magno di San Nicola Arcella to Crawfor Tower: a canoe ride in Calabria

The Arcomagno of San Nicola Arcella, a few paddle strokes from the island of Dino, is the classic "paradise near home," to be enjoyed for its wild beauty. It is a huge natural arch of rock, only entrance to the beach that welcomes you like a cave with no roof.

Splashing water infiltrating the rocks are the soundtrack to a deep sense of wonder and gratitude. Tower Crawford ties its name to the American writer who, dazzled by the beauty of the bay, made the tower his home in the early '900. After the promontory that leads to Scalea, you can see the small island of Cirella.

An imposing rocky ridge indicates the recess of the Bay d'Azur, a natural harbor which also houses the Rock of females. Returning to the island of Dino you can realize how it falls perfectly in the picturesque picture of the Gulf of Policastro.
