Acciaroli is an Italian hamlet (frazione) of Pollica (Province of Salerno), located in Campania region and the greatest one of its comune.

History[edit]

Geography[edit]

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.

Tourism[edit]

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",[2] and the "5 sails" of Legambiente (an Italian environmentalist association) every summer from many years.

Culture[edit]

Some years after World War II, the place was one of the stays of the writer Ernest Hemingway, during his Italian trips.
