The coast below Casa Gioiosa features both beaches and rocky areas with uncrowded small beaches. The sea is turquoise and transparent all along the coast.
At the base of Tindari cape there is a sandy area with many small water ponds.
Today it's a nature reserve: walking along the ponds you can observe birds nesting on the rocks
Overlooking the sea between Gioiosa Marea and Patti, it is the point of the Sicilian coast closest to the Aeolian Islands. It still preserves a stretch of the Via Consolare Pompea, today a nature trail.
Gioiosa Guardia, the old Gioiosa, is a ghost town on the top of Mount Meliuso (750m). From up there the view extends from the Aeolian Islands to Mount Etna: in the evening wonderful sunset over the sea.
Myth, sea, archeology and ancient legends: all this is Tindari. It is located at 268 m, overlooking the sea. From the sanctuary you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Marinello lakes
A little further away, in one day you can visit:
