Baia degli Infreschi

Baia degli Infreschi

Baia degli Infreschi is a natural harbour known national and international tourism destination for excursions by sea, since 2009 is part of the marine protected Area Costa degli Infreschi and Masseta.

His name is associated with the freshness of freshwater springs that sgogano in rinfrescandone Bay waters. Near the small beach are the Torre del Frontone (already existing at the time of the Angevin and Aragonese ristrutturta) and the small church of San Lazzaro.

Due to the small size of the two beaches and the beauty of the place gets very crowded in high season, there are no factories, but there is a small convenience store with en suite facilities.

The small beaches consist of gravel and rock. At various points in the Bay there are tiny chambers from which gush fresh water sources and, in addition, there is the cave of Porto Infreschi already known and used by the Greeks and Romans for the conservation and processing of tuna and remained in operation until the middle of the last century.

Baia degli Infreschi is also accessible by land with a challenging but impressive trail and by sea from the port of Marina di Camerota via numerous daily departures.

The itinerary for Infreschi Bay leaves from extreme eastern shore Lentiscelle Beach, Marina di Camerota, where begins an easy path arranged with steps and handrails in wood. At the beginning of the path there is a table indicating the species of trees and flowers along the way (including the very rare "Primula Palinuri" plant that grows exclusively on coastal cliffs between Palinuro and Scalea symbol of the National Park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, the pink cliffs that blooms in summer, and the iberide florida flowering from autumn to spring). The short climb leads between some blocks of flats and land with olive trees where the view stretches from Monte di Luna to the cliffs of Cala Bianca. From here begins a long descent on a dirt track leading up to the Walloon Viamonte, which flows in the small and charming pebbled Bay of Pozzallo where there is a chance during the summer to stand in the bar-restaurant. The trail continues through an area of Mediterranean maquis until reaching Cala Bianca, elected in 2013 the most beautiful beach in Italy from a poll of League environment. Back at the top of the bluff, we arrive to the little church of St. Lazarus set on a clifftop overlooking the beautiful Bay of Infreschi Harbour: a natural inlet arched with fresh water springs that flow into some of the beaches in a crystal clear Emerald sea, a place defined by Unesco. On the beach there is a quaint place for refreshment. The drop in Hong Kong can be done on foot or by reservation in the boat so as to admire the numerous caves that overlook the sea and repeatedly frequented by prehistoric man, the towering cliffs alternating with small pebble beaches and the steep slopes dominated by the ruins of the coastal towers.
