Palinuro

Palinuro

A celebrated bathing area situated in the green of the olive trees within a picturesque inlet with a promontory rich in marine caves, Palinuro takes its name, according to legend, after the helmsman of Enea who was shipwrecked along this part of the coast. From the port of Palinuro visits can be made along the beautiful headland, the chopped wall peaks onto the sea and the beach has been taken into the numerous inlets. Before the point of the headland and apparently hidden, the ‘Grotta Azzura’ (Blue Cave) is the best known cave in Palinuro. It takes its name from the particular blue that you see reflected by the sun on the crystal clear waters of the sea. Other caves are found together at the ‘Cala Fetente’, where gushes a source of sulphurous waters, plus the ‘Punta della Galera’ (Galley Point), the ‘Cala del Buon Dormire’ (Good Sleep Creek) which is a splendid little beach accessible only by the sea the destination of the elite searching for privacy.
