Highlights and Sights
The busy and picturesque port of Marina Grande is framed by groups of colorful little houses. Boat trips usually commence here.
The Grotta Bianca is easily visible from the sea, but to best appreciate its beauty passengers will need to disembark and climb up the steps in the rocks which lead inside the cave via a small tunnel dug out of the stone. Only in this way will they be able to see the white stalactites and stalagmites and enjoy the view of the sea from above, through the mouth of the cave.
Bay of Matermania
One of the most beautiful and sheltered of the islands bays. The level of the sea is quite low and the colors of the sea incredibly varied. On dry land, a pathway through the wood of holm oaks, past the Natural Arch and Casa Malaparte makes for a stunning walk. Opposite the bay, on the other side of the water, the Amalfi Coast and the islands of Galli can be seen. A swim in the bay is an unmissable and unique experience!
From the sea, the famous Casa Malaparte, residence of the eponymous writer, Curzio, can be seen in all its avant-garde splendor. Dominating Punta Massullo, the outcrop on which the edifice was built, Casa Malaparte starkly contrasts with, and yet also seems part of, the beautiful natural environment which surrounds it. Unfortunately, at the present time, the building is not open to the general public.
The Monacone sea stack rises up behind the Faraglioni as if to cordon off the small bay where the much-loved Da Luigi bathing establishment and restaurant are located.
These imposing rocks are the best known symbol of Capri and populated by blue lizards and seagulls. At their feet, the Fontelina bathing establishment with its sea edge platforms and restaurant, should not be missed. The view which extends from the Faraglioni across the whole of Marina Piccola and beyond is quite exceptional. The cuisine is deliciously simple. The service is impeccable. The Fontelina is famous throughout the world and to lunch here is a quite ,unforgettable experience!
A tiny sea cave with water the color of emeralds, and on either side, two small bays. Although the boat is too large to pass through the cave, passengers can chose to swim from one side to the other.
Punta Carena Lighthouse
Capri's lighthouse is one of the tallest in Italy and marks the point where the South and West coasts of Capri meet. The restaurant situated on the rocks directly beneath the lighthouse is excellent.
Cala del Rio
An enchanting bay, with rich natural vegetation, Cala del Rio is dominated by the Villa Rovelli and more than merits a stop, which should include time for a swim. In the distance, the island of Ischia can be seen, rising up out of the sea.
Bagni di Tiberio (Baths of Tiberius)
Once the site of an ancient Roman villa, the ruins of which can still be seen, the Bagni di Tiberio are today home to a beach club and one of the island's finest seaside restaurants, famous for its "Fritto Tiberio".
The Blue Grotto (can be reached by sea or by land with a 10-minute bus or taxi ride from the center of Anacapri)
The Blue Grotto is one of the natural wonders of Capri that no visitor to the island will want to miss. Named after the intense blue light which penetrates through an underwater fissure and fills the sea cave with beautiful reflections, the Grotta Azzurra, or Blue Grotto, is a major tourist attraction that can get quite crowded in high season. You often have to wait in a long line to enter and will only be inside the cave for a few minutes. Tickets to enter the Blue Grotto cost €14/person and access is via small rowboats guided by expert skippers, how often sing traditional songs that echo magically inside the sea grotto.
Some visitors enter the cave by swimming through the opening in the early morning or late afternoon when the tourist rowboats no longer operate, though it is forbidden to do so. Though the cave is quite large, the entrance is very low and managed by the expert rowboat skippers to ensure safe passage. The grotto closes in case of adverse weather or sea conditions when it is impossible to pass through the small cave entrance. Near the Blue Grotto, the famous Beach Club Il Riccio restaurant sits directly on the water and can be reached by land or sea. They are known for their gourmet seafood and fish dishes, and uniquely chic design and atmosphere.
