This beach, which can only be reached by sea, is a haven of golden sands and crystal-clear water that appears to be tinged with emerald green. The beach, which seems to have been painted by one of the world’s leading artists, is framed by rocky cliffs and is rendered even more unique thanks to the presence of rabbit
reef, which soars out of the sea off the coast.
Located close to Palinuro harbour, this small sand and pebble beach is protected from the sea breezes by the reefs that surround it, creating a small bay. It is the ideal place for relaxing and swimming, with the colourful fishing boats completing the idyllic scene.
Arco Naturale beach
A step back in time to what has been used as the setting for colossal mythological films like “The Argonauts 2”, “Hercules and the Conquest of Atlantis” and “Clash of the Titans”. Just outside Palinuro, close to the mouth of Mingardo River, this sand and pebble beach is famous thanks to the rocky arch that soars above it, creating a small bay.
This fine sand beach is one of the most famous in the area. It is located in the centre of the village and can be easily reached on foot or by car.
Just outside the centre of Palinuro, close to the mouth of the Lambro River, this beach boasts fine golden sands and slopes gently to a crystal-clear sea whose waters range in colour from sky blue to green. The area has private parking and the beach offers numerous facilities for visitors.
This fine, golden sandy beach stretches for 5 km and is surrounded by Mediterranean scrubland. It is ideal for families with children as the sea here is shallow and the sea bed sandy, making it ideal for swimming.
Former Club Med beach
This was the beach of the former Club Med resort and is a fine white sandy beach with small reefs close to the water’s edge. Some parts are designated free beaches, whereas others offer bathing facilities and services for guests.
Barca a Vela beach
Known also as Pertuso beach, this stands on the road between Palinuro and Marina di Camerota. It boasts golden sands, with some pebbles, and is almost 10 km long. It takes its name, which translates as “sailboat” from the sail-shaped rocky formation in the middle of the shore. Given its size it never gets too busy, even in high season.
