The water in Praja a Mare


The 22 mt (65 ft) cliff jumping from the Arcomagno Arch

In Praja there's really no time to get bored! You can just relax on the beach, cuddled by the breeze while laying back on a deckchair, or you can make your time simply extreme!

  • White Water Rafting on the Lao river in spectacular Pollino National Park.
  • Cliff Jumping The highlight for travellers who enjoy having butterflies in their stomachs is cliff jumping off Arcomagno Rock, a 22 metre (67 feet) natural bridge over a hidden crystal bay. For less brave divers, lower jumps can be found on the Dino island coast.
  • Scuba Diving. You don't need to be a professional diver to enjoy the coral gardens or the ancient relics lying not far from Dino island.
  • Trekking Not many places offer the diversity of mountains meeting the ocean. Praja does, leading the beauty of Pollino National parks to the clearness of the Tirrenian Sea.





  • OndaRoad Beach Hostel, (0039)347-0736169, [1]. Family run hostel a few metres from the beach. Rates are €19 in a mixed dorm, €25 (per person) for an en-suite double room. Free breakfast, home made lunch, and pick up from the train station.
