Journey among the 5 most beautiful beaches of Cilento
Cilento declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1998 together with the archaeological sites of Paestum, Velia and Vallo di Diano is one of the most underrated areas in Italy.
We are located in the southern area of Campania, precisely between seas and mountains in the province of Salerno.
The area is characterized by an indented coast, between hills and mountains that still maintain its origin intact; in fact it is renowned for its wild, uncontaminated flavor.
You will find secret beaches and fishing villages where life seems to have a slower pace, almost as if time had stopped and kept the traditions of a past time; away from the busy life makes the place absolutely magical.
The Cilento coast is a succession of coves, beaches and inlets set between nature and unique landscapes in the world and bathed by a sea that has nothing to envy to the Maldives.
Like a postcard it is impossible to resist the crystalline blue of its waters.
A varied and suggestive coastline to be explored by boat, especially in front of more inaccessible and rocky areas, accessible only by sea. Perfect places for diving.
There are many caves overlooking the sea, one above all the beautiful Blue Grotto of Palinuro which opens on the northern side of Punta della Quaglia.
Its name is due to the spectacular effect produced by the blue which, apparently coming from the seabed, illuminates the entire environment making it unreal and evocative.
Most of the beaches of Cilento are unspoiled and wild, but over the years there has been a huge increase in tourism.
In fact, many tourists who love adventure and the taste of freedom choose these beaches to immerse themselves in nature and the sea, certainly thanks to the confirmation of the FFE – Foundation for Environmental Education, which assigns the prestigious banner to seafaring municipalities with the cleanest waters.
Many beaches of the Cilento Coast boast the famous Blue Flag.
It is certainly not easy to choose between so much beauty, but we try.

13 km loop that starts from the bay, and rises 200 meters along the sea.
Along the way it is possible to find old abandoned stone farmhouses surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation; in some places, it seems that spring has never gone away.
