Going up to San Nicola means embracing the coast between Capo Scalea and Maratea with a single glance, admiring extraordinary sunsets that at the end of each day will seal the best memories of your holiday.And the sea has a lot to offer, with beaches, rocks and some caves that make this area among the most varied of the Mediterranean, including a rock that forms a large arch.
