From Palinuro, to discover the most beautiful sites in Campania
Marbella Club stands in a prime location that makes it easy to reach some of the most beautiful sites of the Cilento and Campania. Every day you can decide whether to go on wonderful boat trips to visit extraordinarily beautiful bays and caves. And if you love riding, we also arrange fantastic trips on horseback.
Guests can also take part in characteristic evening lamparate (traditional trips organised by local fishermen taking guests out at sea at night to angle for oily fish), with a spaghetti party on the beach afterwards. You’ll enjoy a unique experience, surrounded by an atmosphere rich in tradition and savouring some of the delicacies of our sea.
