Marina Grande, Capri

2.7
#5 of 9 in Parks in Capri
An ancient fishing port used by the Romans in Augustinian times, Marina Grande is now a bustling tourist hub. Catch a boat tour to explore the caves and grottoes around the island, or rent a speedboat for the afternoon. For a calmer experience, stroll along the water and take in the views, perhaps picking up a souvenir along the way, or relax on nearby Marina Grande Beach, the largest on the island. With ferries from Naples and Sorrento arriving regularly, it can get very busy during the day: evening visitors may have a more peaceful time.

  • The beach of Marina Grande is a small strip of beach almost entirely of rocks near the port of Capri. I have been there out of season, so it was empty, by tourists. From here you can enjoy a beautiful view of both sea island. Restaurants and shops nearby and the bus stop for both Capri and Anacapri.

  • Marina Grande is located in the northern part of the island at the foot of Mount Solaro. Here's the only landing on the island by vessels and hydrofoils from Sorrento, Naples, Salerno and the Amalfi coast. There is also a Marina, the funicular leading to the Piazzetta and the departure for boat tours of the island. In front of the harbour there is a little square (Piazza Vittoria) which is surrounded by the typical colorful houses of the fishermen of Capri. In Marina Grande, there is a public beach on the island, but also the embarkation of the speedboat to Palazzo a Mare. It's a beautiful beach of white sand surrounded by rock formations covered with dense vegetation. The sea is bright turquoise color, crystal clear and transparent. It is equipped with equipment behind it.
