The great beach of Marina Grande
Located on the north coast of the island, Marina Grande beach is the largest beach in Capri and is very popular with tourists. It is easily accessible from the main port of Capri and offers a breathtaking view of the sea and the cliffs of the island. This is the best beach for swimming, ideal for families and children, with food and drink stands nearby.
Moreover, you can swim there without having to take transportation, the beach is just to the right of the port when you arrive on the island. You can’t miss it. It is the ideal beach if you are waiting for your boat to Naples to take a last swim before setting sail.
Marina Piccola beach and Torre Saracena
This beach, located on the south coast of the island, is known for its crystal clear water. Mainly made up of pebbles, it offers a breathtaking view of the cliffs of Capri, the Torre Saracena and the famous Faraglioni di Capri rocks.
It is really the ideal beach to make your Instagram photos, between the cliffs, the rocks, the azure water, the boats, one does not know any more where to give of the head. We recommend you to go there especially if you have taken an accommodation in Capri.
Bagni di Tiberio
Located on the northwest coast of the island, Bagni di Tiberio is a beach of pebbles and sand mixed with lush vegetation. It offers a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere, with modern facilities and full bar service.
This is an interesting option if the Marina Grande is already full or if you prefer to be quiet or avoid the view of the port.
Beach of the lighthouse of Punta Carena
Located on the southwest coast of the island, Punta Carena offers a breathtaking view of the sunset and is ideal for snorkeling. This beach is less frequented than the other beaches of Capri, because it is also the farthest beach from the port.
Head towards the lighthouse and park in the parking lot, walk down towards the lighthouse restaurant and the bar next to it. You will be able to put your towel on the terraces, sort of flat platforms along the path and access the sea at the end of the path.
Beach of Faraglioni
Located next to the famous Faraglioni of Capri, this beach offers a breathtaking view of these unique rock formations. It is ideal for swimming and snorkeling. You can reach it on foot from the Tragara viewpoint by walking towards the Luigi Ai Faraglioni restaurant. And yes, all the beaches of Capri have their bars and restaurants to accompany them, but we will not advise you this one. 😉
We also recommend booking a boat tour to see the Faraglioni of Capri and the island from another angle, it is really worth the detour.
In conclusion, Capri is a dream destination for all sea and beach lovers (especially for snorkeling). With its many beaches, everyone will find his or her own little piece of paradise on this island. Don’t forget your bathing suit, sun cream and sunglasses, and enjoy all the wonders of Capri!
