Very good beach on the pontoons. Clean, comfortable. Umbrella and sun bed cost 25 euro for two for the whole day. The restaurants and cafe are just a few minutes away, as well as the parking slot. The price tag for parking is 2 euro per hour.

Fun visit where you can see the fishing boats, the nets, the men bringing in their catch. Take in one of the nearby restaurants that sell the fresh fish… as good as you'll find anywhere. Don't come here looking for a beach; it's a working place that offers you a real sense of the Italian sea.

Much as I hate to go against the grain of many reviewers, I believe the marina ain't worth the time and effort. Two Euros for the return lift, a long walk on an ugly and dirty dirt road and nothing but tourist traps-tipe restaurants. Look elsewhere.

Ok it's a Marina but as it says "Grande" and that it is... Lots of restaurants or places to get a drink... Ok a small volcanic sand beach but it's not why you visit the marina, you visit it to catch a taste of local life... The Portamarina fish restaurant has to be the most friendly place I've ever been... More

It's a nice place to visit, have a beer, have a lunch and maybe spend couple of hours in the water. It's not a beach destination but it's nice to have a swim and enjoy it's serene location with its surrounding.

Long leisurely lunch at the restaurant on the jetty. Delicious food and the waiting staff are so funny and friendly. Walk down to the Marina Grande and then get the bus back when you are full and sleepy. One euro. BLISS!

If you want to eat & admire the views across the Bay of Naples then you would find it difficult to find a better place than this. The Marina Grande is the smaller marina on the Sorrento Coast line & the Marina Piccolo is the larger of the two marina's which seems rather strange as Piccolo means small & Grande... More

I wouldn't say Sorrento is a beach town but when one of the local highlights is supposed to be the beach, it has to be better than this. The beach is very tiny and crowded and the boardwalk has outdated restaurants and simple convenience stores. There isn't much of a view. This wasn't worth the walk down the hill.

Local fishermen prepare and serve the days catch. And if you are staying in a B and B in the area you can hear them leave to go catch the fish in the very early hours of the morning. Nice little beaches to catch the sun and cool off in the water. Colour and sound. This is our favorite part... More
