Marine protected areas

The Cilento sea is among the cleanest seas in Europe and is a World Marine Biosphere Reserve.

The coast of the National Park also has two other very important awards: two Marine Protected Areas.

One opens the Cilento coast to the north, the other closes it to the south: Santa Maria di Castellabate and the Costa di Infreschi and della Masseta.

 Exceptional marine environments, where Posidonia oceanica meadows meet red corals, gorgonians corals, stony corals, and a thousand more other animal and plant species.

Inestimable naturalistic and also historical value: Punta Licosa, Infreschi and the Masseta were well-known places since ancient times, and still today rich in historical and archaeological finds.
