About the location

Set in the enormous Cilento National Park, Palinuro is a peaceful town best known for its Blue Flag beaches and coastal grottos. Surrounded by fragrant pine forest and looking out over the Tyrrhenian Sea, this sleepy seaside settlement is a refreshingly authentic holiday choice that few but the locals know about. Explore the rural surroundings on foot by hiking along the coastline and into the unspoilt landscape behind the town, or discover one of the area’s stunning sea caves.

Back in the town, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to cuisine. Options here range from chilled-out beach bars to rustic trattorie serving fresh pizzas. Make sure you try the local anchovy pasta – it’s as popular as it is delicious. Finish your meal with a lemon meringue pie for the classic Cilento finale. If you fancy getting out and about, ferries run along the coast, sometimes as far as Naples via Capri. If you’re travelling by car then we highly recommend making the drive to Paestum to see some of the remarkable ancient Greek temples preserved there.
