Natural Arch, Capri

4.1
#6 of 16 in Sightseeing in Capri
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • Lovely bow on the mountain. Easy excursion from well signposted Capri which ends in the same arc. In this place, there have been different commercials. There is a nearby kiosk where you can eat and drink something cool.

  • Beautiful rock structure formed due to natural agents. From this you can see the sea in a gorgeous. Fabulous views that can be seen under the arch itself with the play of light between water and rock.

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.
