The capital city of the province, also called Reggio Calabria, and the towns of Scilla and Bova are some of the more popular beach resort towns.

Tourists flock to the town of Gerace for its medieval historical center, Norman castle and Norman Cathedral; the town of Stilo also has a Norman castle, as well as a Byzantine church. Many of the towns in this province have been declared some of the most beautiful in Italy.
