Cilento on a sailing boat
Untouched nature. Crystal clear sea. Freedom.
Spend your holidays on the Cilento coast by sailboat will make you discover a pristine place, full of lonely coves, crystal clear waters, picturesque villages and landscapes with dense forests.
The territory, which extends from the plain of Paestum to the Gulf of Sapri (in the province of Salerno) is characterized by the presence of the Cilento National Park, recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Thanks to its endless resources and awards, it boasts a unique place in the ranking of the MAB (man and biosphere) of which only 350 places worldwide belong, a sustainable balance useful to protect biodiversity and development in full respect of nature that is the master.
It is an important destination, almost forgotten and therefore little beaten. This is why we came up with the idea of including it in our itineraries, with exclusively sailing boats, sailing with the same breezes that Ulysses used to escape the deceptive songs coming from the island of sirens.
Undisputed center of Mediterranean cuisine, sweet and fragrant earth, broom myrtles and rosemary decorate the profiles of the coasts along which we will sail.
