The trail is part of the splendid coast of the Masseta, which starts from Marina di Camerota and ends in Scario, in the Gulf of Policastro. This challenging hike will introduce us to one of the most beautiful beaches of Cilento: the “Spiaggia del Marcellino” with a path that is sometimes tortuous and very overhanging.
The descent is very steep but offers fantastic views, it is no coincidence that this panorama is called the panorama of the 4 regions, because it is easy, on clear days, to see 4 regions from a single point (Campania, Basilicata, Calabria and Sicily with the Aeolian Islands).
Transfer back to our guesthouse and free time before dinner.
