'''Praia a Mare''' is a nice beach resort town in the [[Calabria]] region of [[Italy]]. This village of 6800 people stands in front of Dino island, surrounded by the stunning Policastro gulf. During the summer months, its beach is divided into about 50 lidos, although intermittently there are unprotected slivers of beach open to the public at no cost.

*'''Paragliding''' The take off is westfaced, at about 600m above sea level. Thermals start around 10:00 during summer. If you are planning to do a solo flight, you should contact the local pilots who will help you all year around to reach the take-offs. If you are first-timer prepare yourself to have a lot of fun and a breathtaking view. Tandem flights requires no experience whatsoever, when signing up your instructor will give you a briefing to make sure you know everything you need to do, before your feet gets off the ground!

*'''White Water Rafting''' on Lao river in spectacular Pollino National Park. This is probably the best way to visit the national park itself. It has the richest repository of flora and fauna in the south, and covers 1960km². There are three river courses of varying levels and durations, with one suitable for children as young as age 10. Spring is the best time to raft the Lao river; the current is stronger, and the water is fresh. The river is karstic in nature; providing an adventure-seekers playground for rafting, canyoning, and kayaking. Most of which are based in-and-around the picturesque town of Papasidero. Every rafting company will provide you with free transportation to/from Praia a Mare.
