Our beach - Natural park "La Secca" Maratea
Turquoise water, dark sand, green vegetation, and a quiet ambienceClick in the images below to enlarge:
Along the coast of Maratea, rich of creeks and bays, you can find the charming resort “La Secca di Castrocucco”, burned by the sun and, at the same time, protected by a scented and coloured vegetation.
The beach is about 5 km far from the hotel, and there you can enjoy landscapes of historical and natural interest.
La Locanda delle Donne Monache offers on request a free bus service to the beach and two sun beds and beach umbrella complimentary.
Here, the scents of the sea blend with the unique perfumes of the luxuriant vegetation: lentisk, myrtle, broom, rosemary, oleanders, etc: everything contributes to create a quite extraordinary and rare location. Secular trees reflect themselves in the calm water and give shade and coolness during the hottest hours of the day. The natural swimming-pool, just in front of the rocky island called “u Tuppu”, it’s ideal for children.
The sea is a play of colours and an alternation of incredible depth and transparency.
You can choose to relax on the terraces of the solarium, to practice canoeing, or if you love the adventure, with flippers and mask, you can start to explore the depths, and the clearness and the quality of the water reserve pleasant surprises...
After a long swim you can enjoy the very nice light lunch served by the bar, and don’t forget to try the famous “Lucan fresa” (that is local bread full of fresh products to choose).
The beach has got its own large parking.
Let’s enjoy the breeze, the colours, the clear water and the vegetation of this peaceful location, La Secca in Maratea!
