Marina di Pioppi

Overview

The capital of the Mediterranean diet

Located 90 kilometres from Salerno,Marina di Pioppi is a hamlet of Pollica as well as a renowned tourist resort in Cilento. Born as a small coastal town, between Acciaroli and Marina di Casal Velino, in recent years it has become a popular tourist destination due to the quality of its waters, for which it has often been awarded the '5 sails' of Legambiente and the Blue Flag award.

Its beaches are very characteristic and of different conformation. The seafront promenade is about one kilometre long, some of which can be walked in the village along a beautiful promenade. There are many places where you can stop and swim. Towards Casal Velino, the beach is made of pebbles and stones, as is the town of Pioppi. For children, we recommend the sandy beach near Palazzo Vinciprova. If you continue north of the village, you will find the beach of Porto del Fico.

In the village, it is worth visiting Musea - the Living Museum of the Sea, at Palazzo Vinciprova, an exhibition space dedicated to marine habitats. The museum also hosts a festival dedicated to the Mediterranean diet, an event that originated thanks to the American physiologist Ancel Keys, who theorised on the benefits of eating the local diet here.

For trekking enthusiasts, we recommend a walk from Porto del Fico, along the Black Grape Well Trail. The route is a couple of kilometres long and ends with a waterfall.
