Where to swim in Naples?
While in this region, temperatures are around 30 degrees in summer, there are unfortunately few beaches around Naples, most of them are private and paying (count about 15€ per day to access them). We have selected the 6 most beautiful beaches near Naples, most of which are public and free.
We do not recommend the nearest beach to Naples, Mappatella Beach, because it is full of garbage.
The more remote beaches are clean and the water is often translucent. Small linguistic point, beach in Italian is called Spiaggia and Bagno means bath.
