In the port of Cetara fishing boats and small boats have an important space, in line with the development of the tuna and anchovy processing industry.
At the same time Cetara is also a tourist destination, and so during the summer hydrofoils and fast motorboats moor and depart from / to Salerno, Capri and the municipalities of the Amalfi Coast. This kind of connections are a valid alternative to road traffic and together with yachting contribute to the fortunes of the area.
Special mention for the marina. About 150 berths and all the services that compete with a modern port: 24-hour security; mooring / unmooring assistance; drinking water; electric energy; mechanical assistance and so on.

Unlike the other places on the Amalfi Coast, Cetara has remained (relatively) out of mass tourism. This allowed the survival of the typical characteristics of Mediterranean architecture.
To see the Church of San Pietro Paolo Apostolo and the viceregal tower. This tower is located at the end of the promenade and represents a typical example of a coastal tower with a sighting function and defense from the dangers of the sea, in particular from the fearsome attacks of Saracen piracy (especially in the 16th century).
Special mention for gastronomy. Cetara is famous all over the world for the processing of tuna and anchovies.
