For a sunny beach holiday on the Italian coast, you can also rent a holiday home in Basilicata! The region is bordered by two seas; the Ionian Sea (Mar Ionio) on the east side, and the Tyrrhenian Sea (Mar Tirreno) on the west side. The Ionian coast is best known for its miles of sandy beaches, while the Tyrrhenian coast is characterized by a beautiful, rugged coastline. The 35 kilometre long sandy beaches of the Ionian coast are ideal for a family holiday. The water stays shallow for a long time, so that even small children can safely go into the sea. For those who love windsurfing, water-skiing or sailing, there are also plenty of water sports possibilities. Lido di Metaponto and Lido di Policoro are undoubtedly the most famous tourist resorts on the east coast. On the Tyrrhenian coast, the village of Maratea is a beautiful destination for a day trip to the beach. With its pearly white sandy beaches, azure blue sea, rugged rocks and idyllic islands, it is not surprising that the area is also called the 'pearl of the Tyrrhenian Sea'. Take an excursion on a sailing ship or go snorkelling along the crystal clear coastline. Maratea is an excellent base for a wonderful day at the beach from your holiday home in Basilicata.
