The caves of Camerota The infiltration of water has created caves and grottoes above and below sea level all along the coast of Cilento. Near Marina di Camerota in particular the formation has in some cases continued until quite recently, while elsewhere no water has filtered through for centuries. The cave of Cala Bianca is fossilised and filled with rock debris, but the grottoes were kept free of debris by the action of the sea. In some of these alcoves (della Cala, del Poggio, della Serratura) finds of prehistoric settlements have been found.
