About the location

Ricadi is located on the Southern Italian coastline of Calabria.

This sleepy town is a hidden gem, and home to Baia del Godano Resort & Spa, a tranquil beachfront resort overlooking the sparkling blue Tyrrhenian Sea. This is an idyllic place for an extended stay, with sunny warm days stretching across long summers.

Arriving in Ricadi you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time. This medieval town is believed to have been established in the 10th century, and has had a rich agricultural history, home to vineyards, farms, and olive groves.

Away from your daily routine, your holiday in Ricadi can be filled with adventure, albeit at a slower pace. Venture south to delightful Cape Vaticano, where inviting white beaches and warm waters are perfect for snorkelling. There are also plenty of scenic trails to go hiking along.

In the north lies Santa Domenica di Ricadi, where more beautiful beaches and natural caves are tucked away in bays under jagged cliffs. Baia di Riaci is arguably one of the best beaches and a popular spot for scuba diving.

In the month of August you can enjoy the unique annual festival of La Sagra della Cipolla Rossa, which pays homage to the protected IGP red onion - a regional speciality.

It’s easy to feel like you’ve landed in the middle of nowhere, but Baia del Godano Resort & Spa is just a mile away from a train station and a one hour drive form the main airport in Calabria, Lamezia Terme International Airport.

The beach is very small and dirty. Took over an hour each night to get dinner to the table. Food was passable at best, but not filling and not flavourful. We walked down the beach for 10-15...
