"U sapore ru mare vero..."
Small fishing village with a appealing charm.
Door of the Protected Marine Oasis, the most beautiful beaches in Italy.

The Greek colonizers of the 5th century BC called it "Scariòs", "small shipyard"; the Roman triremes came to buy the "garum", the succulent and expensive fish sauce. Holed up with its small jewel-like port in the heart of the Gulf of Policastro.

SCARIO Notte.jpg

Scario has been able to preserve his identity and the dreamy and collected appearance of the seaside village, with the houses of the medlar tree in Verghian memory and a walk of heart-rending nostalgia on the waterfront, among palm trees, oleanders and begonias, where bars, restaurants and bistros welcome guests eager to discover these small enchanted places.

At the Olive Tower, which continues to scrutinize the sea, evoking sad memories of looting raids by pirates and marauders, in Punta degli Infreschi, the mythical port of antiquity, there is a succession of stunning surprises. White and sinuous beaches, rocky bastions that sink into transparent and deep waters, sweet bays, hidden coves, mysterious caves, crevices and cliffs: it is "La Masseta", a corner of legend, a stretch of coast among the most beautiful of Italy and, perhaps, of the world.

A truly delightful intimate glimpse, but adjacent to the nightlife of the waterfront.

You can embark at the small port of Scario, for only 5 euros, reach the beaches of Palinuro and Marina di Camerota with a pleasant trip.
Or directly on the Scario waterfront, our partnered seashore "Simone".

We will retrace the events that led to their foundation, as evidenced by the numerous archaeological findings, to the many churches and chapels, which represent the expression of the profound religiosity that has pervaded his people over the centuries. We will descend into their uncontaminated nature by crossing historical paths and fairy-tale woods, looking out over landscapes that approach infinity.


A vast and varied territory characterized by sea and mountains, karst and marine caves, rivers and waterfalls, ancient historical monuments and realities with deeply rooted peasant traditions, suggestive hilltop villages, castles, archaeological areas dating back to ancient Greece, celebrations and festivals, ideal destinations for those looking for holidays in places where time seems to have stopped and nature is still untouched. And, in fact, this area lends itself very well to walking and trekking in the open air, as it offers a vast choice of mountain routes, but also coastal or along rivers. Among the many we mention the Infreschi Bay, the source of the River Bussento with the Inferno Valley, the Mount Cervati, the Gorges of the Calore River, the Valley of the Orchids of Sassano... Discover them with us!


The Oasis is the most important conservation project of the WWF in Italy and represents the concrete intervention in defence of the natural territory and biodiversity. The inhabited center rests on the top of a cliff that dominates the WWF Oasis of the Morigerati Cave, in which you can admire the wonderful resurgences of the River Bussento. It has a nature trail and an equipped area for visiting the caves. The Oasis is above all a safeguard of a territory, protection of biodiversity, maintenance of landscapes and natural values, but not only. The WWF has decided to set up nature trails so that everyone can appreciate and fully enjoy the natural environment in which they move, offering valid stimuli for all the senses. The Bussento River is the fundamental element that characterizes and profoundly marks the territory, constituting one of the most significant phenomena from a landscape-environmental point of view; moreover, the underground part of the Bussento generates one of the most important karst phenomena in Italy.
