We visited this Marina in the afternoon. It was a small pretty bay where one can sit over a drink and soak the atmosphere. We had a drink on the pier while the sun was setting. Although we enjoyed walking down, we wished there was a bus to take us back!

Despite the name, this is the smaller marina in Sorrento. A steep walk down to a small, well weathered set of houses and cafes. The beach is small, wall to wall with loungers rented by the adjoining restaurants. The coarse black sands ring a small, roped off area of water of questionable quality. The best option would be to sit... More

Loved that the village consists of local fisherman and their families. Quaint seafood restaurants line the marina. We loved one night when we were eating, seeing fisherman "sweeping" the marina with their fishing nets for bait. Also loved the beach maintained also by the fisherman. Prices were generally much lower than anywhere else in Sorrento and it was convenient to... More

Lovely location but we were upset to see so many feral cats and kittens roaming around some of which we're suffering badly due to wounds. It may be easy for some people to ignore this suffering and focus on their own interests and pursuits but not us. It's a shame that there is no move to neuter these animals to... More

Beautiful fishing village and a must to see. Just a short walk from the main town but well worth the effort.

Nice to sit and relax watching the sea. You can use the beach or visit one of the bars and restaurants.

Marina Grande is a little charm in quiet part of Sorrento (15 min walk to Sorrento Main Street/ 5 mins by bus €1.30). Lovely restaurants and a lovely little beach where you can rent out sun beds at good prices.

The Sorrento harbour area is a the drop off for cruise ship passengers coming ashore by ship's tenders, for ferry departures and for bathing areas and a minute beach. It is also the start of the steep climb up to the town itself. Unless you have a heart or mobility problem, walk up the cliff road as it is wonderful... More

Lovely smaller marina than the marina piccolo. Watched the fishermen brining in their catches, had a lovely lunch in one of the many small restaurants dotted along the fron.

This is a really authentic local marina which is worth a visit. Not very touristy and has some nice bars/restaurants.
