Santa Maria di Castellabate is situated on the unspoilt Cilento coast in a National Parkland reserve 50km south of Salerno and the Amalfi coast. Its location means that it is somewhat off the 'tourist' track allowing it to preserve a natural Italian ambiance and yet is within easy reach of tourist attractions. It is ideally situated for those wishing to enjoy a holiday in a coastal region and also have access to places of historic and cultural interest. The medieval village of Castellabate dominates the hillside above Santa Maria and is a UNESCO heritage site reached in a 10 minute drive whilst the neighbouring fishing village of San Marco can be reached in a short drive or walk along the beach. Day excursions offer the opportunity to visits the unspoilt coastline further south to Palinuro or north towards the Amalfi coast.
