Basilicata's Tyrrhenian coastline stretches for 19 miles along the short piece of land separating Campania from Calabria. The only town in the region to enjoy the beauty of this shoreline is Maratea. Squeezed in between the sea and the Basilicata Apennines, its long cliff face is intersected by little coves and bays, some of which are inaccessible by land. You will need to take a boat to enjoy the solitude of these hidden gems. Maratea is an open and welcoming town, where you will find incredible views of the surrounding scenery.
