Spiaggia San Gregorio

Tyrrhenian Coast

Turquoise waters lap this gorgeous beach to the east of the point at Capo d'Orlando. Framed by rocky outcrops, with a mix of sand and pebbles and gorgeous full-on views of the Aeolian Islands, it's among the most charmed spots on the entire Tyrrhenian Coast.
