This past weekend we took advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and drove along the coast a little into Calabria and found a pleasant surprise at Roseto Capo Spulico. Here the water is a clear deep blue with some rock outcrops. The most impressive part is the castello that is perched on an outcrop of stone overlooking the beach. The castello is privately owned with an upscale restaurant that also offers banquet facilities. This would be a unique location in the summer to enjoy the sun, the deep blue waters and have the castello as a picture perfect backdrop.
