It might be a challenge to find this place if you walk from the center of Sorrento, but it definately worths it to try to find it. In our case, we were circling in the narrow Sorrento's streets for 20 minutes until lthe moment we went down to the shore. As soon as we arrived, the calmness started. The place... More

Feels like a small fishing village. Quiet, pretty port area which is far more tranquil than the main port by Piazza Tasso. This is a nice area to hangout with good restaurants and a swimming area. To get there Walk down by the Via Sopra le Mura so as to avoid the other road which goes through a long tunnel.

Is an originally fishing village with some nice views. There is a shuttle bus from Piazza Tasso to the Marina Grande and back. The shuttle is going every half hour approximately.

You don't need to get a lift, just fins the Grand Hotel Continental and follow the road down, which is a lovely walk in itself. Once there are loads of bars and restaurants and a small if rather crowded beach, but at night it has a pleasant sea breeze and it's a great place to spend an evening.

You can take a walk around the beach. You will be attracted by the wonderful color of the beach. Prepare swimsuit!!

Amazing how many people are reviewing the wrong marina! Marina Grande is the smaller marina, not the one with the lift and ferries to Capri. Marina Grande is small - about 500m in length - with a small beach, some lovely restaurants and a couple of small shops. It's very relaxed, uncommercial and a super place to spend a few... More

To look down at the water is to look into Heaven itself, the views from some of the cafes that we had coffee and cake in are amongst the best views in the world, you could just stand and look for hours at the aquamarine water.

We walked down a windy and steep road from the main drag to get here. It is a working fishing village and it rather attractive. It has a variety of restaurants from high end to local fishermens! There is a beach and a couple of piers that you can sunbathe on. There are a few tourist shops too. To save... More

Just a 10 minute walk from Sorrento centre, Marina Grande has the feel of an old world fishing village. Half a dozen cafes and some really good restaurants (inc the #1 in TripAdvisor for Sorrento). Take a boat ride for an hour or get a drink and watch the world go by. Worth a visit if you tire of the... More

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.
