Villa di Pollio Felice - Bagni della Regina Giovanna, Sorrento

4.6
#1 of 15 in Parks in Sorrento
Search out the little-known beautiful swimming hole at Villa di Pollio Felice - Bagni della Regina Giovanna, a natural pool of clear water hidden next to the ancient ruins of a Roman villa. The pool's location is a little difficult to find, but ask the locals for directions and watch for a narrow cobblestone sidewalk. The path leads you to the site, where a hole in the rocks lets the sea fill the pool with turquoise water. Swimming here is allowed and encouraged; on a hot day the cold water feels particularly refreshing. Extend your visit by renting a boat at Sorrento and touring the area. You can even go fishing and keep the day's catch for lunch.

  • We found this place online while on our honeymoon. It only happened to be a short walk from our hotel. It is a very steep walk down to the lagoon but well worth it !  more »

  • One of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. Take swim wear.
  • This place was one of my favorite spots in Sorrento. When I asked the locals about it they highly recommended it. It's a short bus drive from Sorrento city center. The bus drops you off about 800 meters off a path (see photos) which takes you to Roman ruins and great spots to take a swim. It's a pretty steep path so prepare yourself for way back. Bring water, lunch, swimming suit, and towels. Do not bring glass and pick up your trash! This place is great and we should keep it that way. There is also a restaurant near by. There is a relatively inexpensive parking lot near the start of path for those who decide to drive.
  • Amazing swimming spot for those who aren't afraid of a bit of a hike. 55 minutes walk from Sorrento. Fortunately that rules put 99% of people staying in Sorrento, so go there for the best swimming and location. World class, magic and fun
  • Great beach were mostly the locals visit BUT be warned if you are not a very strong swimmer then I would not recommend you swim here but sun bake and relax.
  • It's pretty much an open air grotto, the area is so wide you could fit 50 people here and everyone would have space. But high chance since it's so out of the way you'll see a max of ten. Make sure to bring a swimsuit and walking shoes cause it's a bit of a hike to get here but worth the trip for the view.
