The Ionian coast of Italy extends from the Straits of Messina, where some of the strongest tidal streams in the Mediterranean are encountered, to the ‘heel’ of Italy at Santa Maria de Leuca, where the Adriatic begins. Harbours here are more widely spaced and passages of 60 miles or more will often be necessary. Some of the harbours along the bottom of the ‘foot’, especially Rocella Ionica, Le Castella and Marina Laghi di Sibari, are also subject to silting and up-to-date information on depths at the entrance is essential. Cruising along this coast, a yacht will encounter the harbours of Reggio di Calabria, Rocella Ionica, Le Castella, Crotone, Ciro Marina, Marina Laghi di Sibari, Taranto and Gallipoli before arriving in the Adriatic. For details of all harbours, see below.
