The Cilento Coast (Italian: Costiera Cilentana) is an Italian stretch of coastline of Cilento, on the southern side of the Province of Salerno. It is situated in the gulfs of Salerno and Policastro, extending from the municipalities of Capaccio-Paestum in the north-west, to Sapri in the south-east.



There are 16 municipalities composing the coast, but only two (Agropoli and Sapri) are directly located by the Tyrrhenian Sea, and other two (Ascea and Pisciotta) have got their Marinas very close to the towns. Other localities are frazioni of hillside municipalities.

Blue Flag

Due to the quality of its water, the Cilento Coast is the most awarded coastal area of Campania and one of the most ones of Italian Tyrrhenian Coast, by the Blue Flag beach [1]. Many localities of the coast are also awarded with the Sails, from 5 to 1, of Legambiente [2].
