It has repeatedly been awarded the blue flag because of its well-kept sandy beach. In addition, you can arrive by train, but if you want to experience the Cilento Nature Reserve's beautiful slopes and mountain towns, we advise you to have a car.
Being awarded the Blue Flag is recognition for the Ccystal clean sea water and clean beaches, and also the amenities that are available on the beach. As a result, it is a very popular beach with the locals, and many Italians choose to spend their summer holidays or long weekends here. There are several restaurants where you can enjoy the good cheese and meats from the hinterland, and if you like fish and seafood then you will find this in abundance, caught fresh every day by the local fishermen.

If you arrive by train and want to get around by public transport you will easily be able to get to the Velia excavations and move along the coast to include Palinuro south and Castellabate to the north. However, you will have many more options if you arrive by car. In a car, you can head all the way up into the mountains where the view is amazing (the trip to Monte Gelbison and San Severino di Centola are recommended), and on the other side of the mountains to Padula, where you can spend a wonderful day between the ancient Cosilinum, the medieval centre and the monastery Certosa di San Lorenzo.
