If you are lucky enough to be able to spend at least a week’s holiday by the sea in the Cilento area (which has always been awarded the Blue Flag status), apart from the tradition beach life, you could consider some ideas to practice sport outdoors.
So, here are a few ideas:
Diving in Palinuro reigns supreme among sea sports: there are countless, extremely beautiful sea caves that you are spoilt for choice. One of the most appreciated destinations is the Blue Cave (Grotta Azzurra), the most famous limestone massif of Cape Palinuro, characterised by the presence of special sulphur producing bacteria.The Blood Cave (Grotta del Sangue), the Nativity Cave (Grotta del Presepe), the Chimney Tunnel (Tunnel del Camino) and the Sugarloaf Tunnel (Tunnel del Pan di Zucchero) are just as suggestive.
Just imagine the excitement of climbing rocks with a sheer drop to the sea below. Probably you will have immediately understood, why, rock climbing in the Cilento are is becoming increasingly popular, so much so that it a Festival has been created in its honour: the Palinuro ClimBrave Festival is usually held during the late spring period and it gives you yet another reason to visit our beaches.
TREKKING, BIKE, EXCURSIONS ON HORSEBACK
Thanks to the mild climate, it is possible to go trekking in Palinuro all year round. The The hiking trips allow you to explore the mediterranean maquis by following paths which are suitable for different levels of physical preparation.As an alternative, so that you can make the most of the natural dimension of the holiday, we recommend horse-riding trips, which start from sea level and climbing higher and higher towards the hills and the mountains.
