A UNESCO World Heritage Site, lush vegetation, crystal clear waters and a coast stretching for 100 km:
The Blue Grotto
Is the cave most known to tourists and the easiest to get by boat, just outside the harbor of Palinuro, and is therefore the most visited, also thanks to the spectacular play of light that can be seen on the surface of the water, which magically, especially at certain times of the day, is colored by an intense blue. The maximum depth of the cave is 33 metres.
To reach it you can catch a small boat which departs from the port of Palinuro and which may also include the possibility of excursions to discover the caves of Capo Palinuro like this one, the Blue Grotto. Current charge is €15 p.p.for a 90 minute boat ride.

Baia del Buon Dormire

From the port of Palinuro is possible to take the Beach Shuttle, which can easily reach the Bay of Buondormire, otherwise inaccessible to most. After departure, expected in the morning, the boat reaches the shore of the Bay of Buondormire and here it is left for subsequent re-embarked in the afternoon to return to port. On the beach of Buondormire not present any kind of organized beach service, so customers are given the opportunity to bring their beach gear like umbrellas, among other things, highly recommended. On the beach there, but only during the summer, a small bar where you can refresh during the stop. The service is subject to various limitations, we recommend that the customers inquire about the weather conditions at the ticket office, or telephone the staff for more information.

eat and drink at the beach cafe but relax and feel secluded. until a boat tour comes along.. you do still feel even when busy that your not being trampled on while trying to relax like some places.. all in all a lovely spot to chill out.

Well worth a stop if you are passing by/through Palinuro. No entry fee, but a donation is expected. The staff person there provided us with a small explanation of key artifacts in the collection (he only spoke Italian).

Spiaggia della Molpa

Reviewed By michelangelodeleo - Capaccio-Paestum, Italy

Si rimane stupiti di fronte alla Potenza della natura espressa qui dalla falesia della Molpa. Dopo un breve sterrato si arriva in un ampio parcheggio custodito e da qui, dopo un breve sentiero, si arriva sulla spiaggia della Molpa, lunga e molto stretta dominata da un'altissima parete di roccia liscia. Caratteristica è la grotta enorme, dominata da un ambiente iniziale molto alto. Dalla spiaggia ci si tuffa in un mare straordinario e si procede verso sinistra seguendo la parete rocciosa e facendosi sorprendere dalle calette e dalle grotte di una suggestione indescrivibile. Sulla parete della Molpa si pratica l'arrampicata
