Location

Sea grottoes, bathing and diving paradise

For Italians, Palinuro is the best-known seaside resort of the Cilento today, in particular because of the more than 30 sea grottoes around the cape. Stone-age flint stone blades and fossils of pre ice-age animals found in some of them indicate early settlement of the Cilento.

Five of the grottoes can be visited by boat. Grotta Azzurra in particular need not shun comparison with the famous Blue Grotto on Capri. The other grottoes are accessible only for divers. Several local diving schools offer equipment and excursions.

Clean sandy beaches stretching for kilometers on end and crystal clear water – Palinuro is a paradise for those who love the seaside. The most scenic beach is found at the “Arco Naturale”, a natural rock arch; Baia del Buondormire conveys a touch of the Caribbean.

Various possibilities for active holidays

Numerous shops and boutiques, good restaurants and many sports activities – Palinuro is an attractive holiday resort.

Hikers can start onto several scenic tours from Palinuro, e.g. right onto the Cape or along the marked trail Sentiero S. Iconio, which offers beautiful views of the Cape of Palinuro.
