Club Esse Sunbeach


On the sea, between palm trees and bougainvillea

The Sunbeach resort, in the Gulf of Squillace, bathed by the Ionian Sea, is an exotic oasis with a thousand-year history: Ulysses passed here, the Normans built a castle and the Saracens made their raids there. The surrounding area is dotted with beaches and ancient villages. An ideal destination if on a holiday you are looking for the lightness of laughter with entertainment and, in the evening, great shows: musicals, cabaret or a romantic cocktail illuminated by the Calabrian sunset.
