Travel Itineraries: Cilento


The Cilento promontory represents a destination less traveled by holiday traffic, despite
the fact that its sea is among the clearest in the Tyrrhenian Sea. We describe it starting
from the Gulf of Agropoli with its roadstead and marina. It is a good base for visiting the
temples of ancient Paestum, and the medieval village of Agropoli. The coast to Punta
Licosa is relatively shallow and dotted with beaches with some shallows to watch out
for. Turning the point there is a good anchorage ridged by the Mistral in the Rada di
Ogliastro. The coast continues southeast with alternating beautiful beaches and rocky
areas, along the route some marinas nearing completion and some marinas already
operational, others lacking services (San Nicola, Acciaroli and Casal Velino, Marina
di Pisciotta, Palinuro).

Cape Palinuro extends out to the west creating two wide bays, to the north the bay of
the Port protected from southerly winds, to the south the Bay of Buondormire,
protected from northerly and westerly winds. At the Cape many beautiful caves to visit
by SUP or swimming. Beautiful cliffs and lovely beaches before arriving at Marina di
Camerota, the best equipped port in Cilento. After Camerota the road goes inland and
the coast becomes wild, verdant and devoid of urban settlements; this area is regulated
by the Marine Protected Area of the Infreschi and Masseta and it is not possible to
anchor, but the beautiful bays are equipped with mooring buoys. Cala degli Infreschi
is a magical place, very well sheltered, with ice-cold water due to freshwater springs
emerging from the overhanging rocks. Numerous caves, beaches and lonely coves until
we reach the delightful village of Scario with its marina. We have now entered the Gulf
of Policastro, which we meet after a few miles, the coast lowering hemmed in by
beaches to the gulf of Sapri, which has a good marina and a well-protected roadstead.
The town is connected by high-speed trains to all of Italy.
Below, the mountains approach the coast again near Maratea, which also has a tourist
marina. Here too there are beautiful beaches, caves and coves all the way to Dino
Island.
