The wonders of Cilento



Ascea is a municipality located in the National Park of Cilento and the Vallo di Diano e Alburni, consisting of a territory that combines the sceneries of the mountains with those of the coast. Ascea Marina is one of the hamlets of this municipality, and it is a wonderful seaside town on the Cilento coast, which has been awarded the Blue Flag for many years. A beach with kilometres of beautiful golden sand enhanced by the blooming of sea lilies, whose collection is not permitted, surrounded by hills with olive trees and other plants typical of the Mediterranean. The promenade is flanked for more than 5 km by a cycle path and ends in a charming inlet bordered by the majestic cliffs of Punta del Telegrafo; here there are hidden coves and inlets and the Silver Bay and the Bay of Rondinella reachable only by sea.

This municipality is also home to one of the most important archaeological sites in southern Italy, Elea-Velia, home of the philosophers Parmenides and Zeno of the eleatic and pre-Socratic philosophical school. The site represents a major breakthrough in the archaeological field, with its "Porta Rosa", a splendid example of an arch carved by the ancient Greeks.

Come and discover the most beautiful beaches of Cilento: from the beach of Sapri to Agropoli, passing through Marina di Camerota.

Nicknamed the "Pearl of Cilento", cited among the most beautiful beaches of Italy by Legambiente and the Touring Club.

It is one of the most beautiful and wild areas of Cilento, kilometres long and bordered by a splendid Mediterranean vegetation, with centuries-old olive trees.

Marina di Camerota  Cala degli Infreschi
Italy's most beautiful beach of 2014 (Legambiente)

This small bay with its mirror like sea is a protected marine nature reserve. It amazes and fascinates travellers with its variety of colours, ranging from the green of the Mediterranean scrub to the white of the sand and the cobalt blue of the sea.

Marina di Camerota- Cala Bianca
Named by Legambiente the most beautiful beach in Italy in 2013, it is a little corner of paradise where you can find white pebbles, green Mediterranean vegetation and turquoise sea.  

Palinuro - Arco Naturale
just a few steps from the mouth of the river Mingrado, this beach is famous for the arch that encloses a pristine beach made up of sand and stone

Palinuro –Baia del Buon Dormire
a beach that can only be reached by sea with pinkish golden sand and crystal clear water that appears emerald green thanks to the seabed

80 municipalities, many of which are set within the hilly mountain range.
Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO along with the sites of Paestum, Elea-Velia and the Certosa di Padula, it is particularly known for the abundance of its biodiversity due to the many different habitats: the highest mountain in Campania, the Cervati, sinkholes and natural caves, rolling hills and one of the most beautiful coastlines in Italy.
