During summertime everything is related to sea. During daytime main activities are water sports or beaches activities; during nighttime sea-side discos (in Roccella or in its sorroundings) are quite crowded and in a serene mood. Entrance is almost free. Drink prices are cheap.

EatEdit

Like all the sorrounding, food is very typical and extremely tasty. Main suggestion includes dry-sausages ("soppressata"), any preparation of egg-plants (by themselves, owen-cooked or in a unique course very similar to greek Moussaka), fresh fried anchovies, and so on. Food is typically spiced with fennel, oregano, onion, garlic. Roccella has as well an excellent local-made bread.
