An exciting boat trip in Marina di Camerota
The boat experience will take you to explore, along the entire coast of Marina di Camerota, wonderful caves and natural coves, each with its own interesting story, that the sailors will tell you. So let's find out below what are the highlights that characterize this exclusive boat tour:
1. Baia degli Infreschi
The beach of Baia degli Infreschi is at the top of the list of the most beautiful and visited beaches of Cilento, in fact it has been elected many times the most beautiful beach in Italy by Legambiente. Moreover, the surrounding natural landscapes make the Baia degli Infreschi a real natural harbor, whose name is associated with the freshness of the water springs that flow in some places along the coast. In Roman times the name was Anphorisca because the clay was quarried there for the manufacture of clay artifacts. In the seventeenth century, on nautical charts it was called Anfresca, and then later came to the present name of Baia Infreschi.
Therefore, the boat trip to the Bay of Infreschi becomes a must for those who decide to spend a day or a vacation in Marina di Camerota.
2. Blue Grotto
The grotta Azzurra di Marina di Camerota, also known as grotta di Cala Fortuna is smaller and less known than that of Palinuro, but no less fascinating. The cave is called of Cala Fortuna, because it is said that here fishing with the net has always been very profitable.
3. Cave of the Lovers
Not far from the tower of the Zancale, there is a small cave called the "cave of the Lovers". Its name derives from the curious story told by old sailors, that is, since it is a small cave easily accessible from the port of Marina di Camerota with a small beach inside, this was the ideal place for elopements by young couples, especially for those where families impeded the marriage.
4. Grotta delle Noglie
Not far from the bay of Porto Infreschi, along the east coast of Marina di Camerota, is located the Cave of Noglie, it has the peculiarity of being a cave about three meters high above the water, and this has meant that it was inhabited by humans in different prehistoric eras. The signs of human presence are many and they are preserved especially on the upper part of the wall of the cave, not reached by marine erosion.
5. Cala Bianca
The beach Cala Bianca was declared in 2013 the most beautiful beach in Italy by Legambiente. Its name derives from the beautiful sandy beach mixed with small white pebbles that characterize the surface of the beach. The beach of Cala Bianca, surrounded and immersed in the Mediterranean shrubland, can only be reached in two ways: the first is by boat from Marina di Camerota, the second is on foot from Pozzallo through a path that crosses the Mediterranean shrubland.
6. Pozzallo beach
The beach of Pozzallo is an enchanting place, and unlike the nearby Cala Bianca, benefits from the presence of a small restaurant camouflaged in the green of the Mediterranean vegetation that offers bathers all kinds of services and tasty lunches, typically based on Cilento traditions. The beach of Pozzallo is characterized by a mixture of pebbles and gravel and offers the opportunity to swim in beautiful and crystal clear waters.
