Marina Piccola, Capri

3.8
#2 of 6 in Nature in Capri
Marina Piccola, located on the south side of the island of Capri, has a history stretching back to Roman emperors Augustus and Tiberius. As the smaller port on the island, it sees less traffic. From here, you can take the Via Krupp, a historic switchback paved footpath that connects the marina to the Charterhouse of San Giacomo and the Gardens of Augustus. Bring suitable shoes as the beach is made of small stones and not sand. Consider eating in one of the seaside restaurants while here.

  • Capri is always Capri!! I really like the beautiful landscapes to the lush green prickly pears, the brooms, the lemon trees and Mediterranean flavors, the white houses, I mean I love the look of nature and landscape of the island. I dislike his worldliness, the little square always full of characters, its shops, its "built" to give the image of luxury. I prefer the more discreet and quiet Anacapri, from here you can climb Mount Solaro chairlift, or walk, to visit the remains of the Fort of Brutus, is the highest point of the island from where you can admire a magnificent view stretching from the Gulf of Naples , Sorrento, the Amalfi coast. I like to visit it always off season, to avoid the rush of people, and even a dip in the sea of Marina Piccola with in front of the Faraglioni, always off season (time and water permitting).

  • We landed in this complex with a rented Sorrento boat to discover the island. The sea is really beautiful, and when you get surprised us with the colours of the waters surrounding the island. In regards to Marina Piccola, it's small corner of cobbles and stones, on which swimmers lie on towels or a wedge or Chair rental for a few hours in one of the restaurants that stand out of the small and narrow coastline. It is a pity that the care of the beach and the adjacent sea is not among the priorities of the tourist, whose eruptions of hasty meals break the beach and water. From here starts the ascent of Capri, which can also be done with one of the small pink buses travelling for two euros in half an hour the narrow road that joins the two deposits of departure and arrival. You can eat at one of the restaurants on the beach.

  • The Bay is located in the southern part of the island, where there is one of the most famous attractions of Capri: the stacks. This area is warmer than the rest of the island, because the sheer rock protects it from winds and, moreover, its seabed is low. It is no wonder if this pebble you can swim even in winter, without forgetting that the color of the water goes from blue to Emerald green. It is divided into two beaches (Marina di Pennauro and Marina di Mulo) from the Scoglio delle Sirene, where according to mythology the sirens were mentioned by Homer in the Odyssey. Nearby is the Saint Andrew Church from the early 20th century and there are several bathing establishments.
