The fishing at moonlight is called Lamparata.  It is an ancient technique of fishing that the fishermen of the Cilento region have been able to transform into a tourist attraction. In summer this fishing evening is a tradition for who lives in Cilento all year long but it is a can’t miss event of the season for the tourists. The Palinuro and Marina di Camerota sea gives emotions even at night.

From di Marina di Camerota Harbor, around 9 pm, this strange team of fishermen and tourists weigh anchor and leave for an amazing fishing trip. Friends, families with kids and sea lovers are in boat and shove off, leaving behind lights of the old village of Marina di Camerota.

At sea the expert crew guides tourists over the waters discovering the Infreschi Coast’s spectacular landscapes. The crew tell tourists the use and ways of life of Cilento fishermen.

Fishes are attracted to light of the lampara, the big bull fixed on the boat, so fishes come to the surface really close to the boat. All eyes on the actions of seamen that immerse their nets explaining the technique. They use a special fishing nets called the purse seine. When it is full, it takes a human effort, a team effort, to bring the fish aboard. A thunderous applause to reward the fishermen’s effort.

When the fishing is over, the boat heads to the little hide beaches that you can reach only by boat. While the fishermen crew makes dinner, the tourists take a bath in warm sea of Cilento.

Before to set a course on home, one last dive in the beautiful water sea of Baia degli Infreschi. On board to warm the tourist’s soul a limoncello glass. Now it is time to came back to the harbor.

The lamparata is one of thousands thing to do in Palinuro. You have the possibility to discover the Cilento Coast at moonlight, to learn an ancient fishing technique and to taste fresh fish cached right in front of you.

Villamirella - A Jewel In Cilento Region
“We booked Villamirella at the last minute via and on a recommendation of a fellow traveller to visit this area - we were so lucky to have chosen such a lovely place to stay. Carmelo and his wife are wonderful hosts. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We stayed in a hotel room which had its own outdoor terrace. If we return (which we hope to) and a for a longer stay, we would book one of their self-catering apartments - there is a great supermarket right next door and amazing local restaurants close by.”

Лучший отель!  Я провел тут несколько ночей с комфортом на «5 звезд»! Тут очень хорошо!  Это мой идеальный выбор из 30 отелей, которые я рассматривал для отдыха. У Villamirella самая красивая и зеленая территория в округе. Её комфортные номера полностью соответствуют своим описаниям.  Отличное покрытие Wi-Fi. Владельцы предельно внимательны и дружелюбны. Я влюблен в это место, как в сказку.

“Surrounded by nature, is a little jewel set in the Park of Cilento and it recalls the fundamental common good: clean water, sweet and salty, air and soil; respect for the environment and cultural heritage. The apartments are comfortable and tastefully furnished coherent context. Hence the polite and persuasive charm of this country that I discovered only now, unfortunately late. Incredible oasis, Villamirella and Cilento...”
