San Nicola Arcella (Calabria)
San Nicola Arcella is a town and comune in the province of Cosenza in the Calabria region of southern Italy. The village rises on the edge of a steep cliff, overlooking the sea and the wonderful landscape of the Gulf of Policastro. The beaches are nestled in the rock coast, that is a part of the Riviera dei Cedri (Cedars Riviera) so-called for the presence of the characteristic fruits. Under the cliff, a natural harbor lies and, in summer, the small beach offers bathing facilities. At the borders with Scalea, the wild and craggy Capo Scalea stands. It is a small promontory sloping to the sea through some granite blocks.
