2019-08-22 Anchoring off Grand Hotel Tristone to Marina D’Arechi, Salerno, Italy

Early morning light over Positano
Time for our morning swim
The Grand Hotel Tritone precariously perched high on top of the massive cliffs above the sea
Ballet on the water!!!
We say goodbye to our wonderful picturesque overnight anchorage
Looking back to Positano with an armada of super yachts moored nearby
We return motoring in a north easterly direction along the Amalfi Coast towards the larger port of Salerno
Capo di Conca
Once again we pass the lovely town of Amalfi
Continuing along the coast the large town of Salerno comes into view
Once around the cape we pass the small hamlet of Erchie which has an ancient torre, La Torre Cerniola standing on the northeastern point
The popular beach attracts many visitors to the tiny town in the summer months
Wind surfing along this coast is certainly a great pastime for the young and fit !!
Cetara, only 6 km from Salerno is known as a fiercely traditional fishing village and the world’s tuna capital. It also has a reputation as a gastronomic hotspot
Another attractive hillside village is Raito
In the western end of Salerno is Rione Porto, the main port of the city
Entering Rione Porto
High above the port stands the ancient Castello di Arechi
We had made a forward booking for a berth in a marina in Salerno however after radioing in we found that the marina we had chosen was actually east of Rione Porto
Turning around we head back out of the large port
Salerno is an ancient city founded in 197 BC and is the capital of the region of Campania
Motoring east we near our destination
Approaching the modern Marina D’Arechi where we had made our booking for a berth
Looking back to the entrance of the marina and to the large city of Salerno
Tangaroa safely moored in Marina D’Arechi
Tonight we dine aboard and have prepared a Pesce al forno with tomatoes, basil and potatoes
