Natural Arch, Capri

4.1
#10 of 59 in Things to do in Capri
Towering 18 m (59 ft) above the ground stands Natural Arch. As the name suggests, a collapsed limestone grotto along the coastline of Capri has formed this shape, which provides a natural window into the deep turquoise lagoon below. The arch, spanning 12 m (39 ft) wide, is believed to have been from the Paleolithic age. You can take a short hike from the nearby town that winds through narrow streets and past villas and colorful gardens to the arch. Wear proper walking shoes, and be prepared to climb many steps.

  • Seeing this arch up close is nature at it's best. The walk is not bad at all. You start from the center of Capri and follow the signs.Give it a try!  more »
  • Beautiful hike, to do in following good by the Arco Naturale because there are a series of stairs for the suite that comes down, personally not too keen to mount, short... The Ark is really nice with a brief contrast of color with water and greenery, amateur photo you will be served. The tour takes account a good 2 hours with photos and break ;)

Where to stay in Capri

A popular island retreat, Capri offers some of the world's finest seaside lodging options. Most luxury and boutique hotels are located along the water, offering top-notch amenities and access to the best beaches. This tiny island has a big tourist following, which means that in high season even the most economic hotels might cost as much as four- or five-star establishments on the mainland. To avoid the high costs of big chains, consider booking your stay at a traditional B&B farther away from the island's main tourist areas.
