Overview
More
From the port of Palinuro is possible to take the Beach Shuttle, which can easily reach the Bay of Buondormire, otherwise inaccessible to most. After departure, expected in the morning, the boat reaches the shore of the Bay of Buondormire and here it is left for subsequent re-embarked in the afternoon to return to port. On the beach of Buondormire not present any kind of organized beach service, so customers are given the opportunity to bring their beach gear like umbrellas, among other things, highly recommended. On the beach there, but only during the summer, a small bar where you can refresh during the stop. The service is subject to various limitations, we recommend that the customers inquire about the weather conditions at the ticket office, or telephone the staff for more information.

Unless you are staying at the King's Residence hotel and have access to the beach early in the morning, I recommend avoiding it. Tour boats will queue up to drop off their loads throughout the day. The beach is hopelessly overcrowded.
