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 blades made of flint stone and fossils of pre ice-age animals were found in some of them are an indication for the early settlement of the Cilento.

Five of the grottoes can be visited by boat. Grotta Azurra in particular can bear 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 to swim in the sea.

The most scenic beach is to be found at the "Arco Naturale", a natural rock arch; Baia del Buondormire conveys a touch of the Caribbean.
