For those wanting to avoid the tourist traps of the Amalfi Coast, follow the locals to the Cilento Coast for an unspoilt look at Italy’s natural beauty. The small village of Villammare in southern Italy emerged when wealthy families took up residence around the fishermen’s houses surrounding the lovely Church of Santa Maria di Portosalvo. Today, you’ll still see these fishermen’s houses, but alongside stately palazzos. With the beach only 600 metres away, the marina at Vilammare is very popular, although still less so than the Amalfi Coast. The lovely sandy beach offers great beach facilities, cafes, pizzerias and trattorias to sit and enjoy the spectacular views, there’s also a wonderful promenade to stroll along. Walks around the area are highly recommended. The village is at the southernmost point of the stunning Cilento National Park, and a visit to the enchanting hilltop town of Vibonati is a must.
