Acciaroli is a port of Cilento, on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is the largest in its "comune" (the other is the hamlet of Pioppi). The town is 6 km from Pollica, 20 from Santa Maria di Castellabate, 17 from Velia, 30 from Agropoli, and 70 from Salerno.
The town is a part of "Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park", which natural environment is composed of "Maquis", typical of mediterranean countries. It is strongly receptive for tourism, especially on summer; principally because it has gained a national fame due to the quality of its water, which give it the "Blue Flag beach", and the "5 sails" of Legambiente (an Italian environmentalist association) every summer from many years.
