In the northern part of calabrian tirreno coast, between the small plains at the mouths of river Lao and river Noce,
there are mountains rising high from the sea of Scalea and Praia a Mare. Here there are some nice canyons, like Torrente
Fiuzzi, featuring unusual shapes in its last part. You can see a part of it from the bridge of SS 18 highway.

What you find in the detailed description
I remember ...
I remember a great adventure day, a complete immersion in a far world, though only a few kilometers from the town.
I'm alone, and this helps me to feel the Nature all around. In my soul I'm a bit anxious, as always happens when
approaching an environment which surely has some surprise for me, some hidden unpredictable danger. But this looks
as the perfect day, the sun shines in clear blue sky which paints blue the rocks of river bed. Even the sea around
Dino Island is absolutely still.
So I remember ... serenity, adventure and joy to live and be there.
