Glad to see some familiar faces and the Greeter is as charming as ever though I was disappointed that the dress code had not be enforced this year as we love to watch the beautiful people of Sorrento and we like to be part of this

Whilst staying at the Hilton Sorrento Palace, instead of talking our usual route down the hill we turned left at the corner of the road and walked downhill until we came to this lovely area. The marina is extremely pretty and has some restaurants and sunbathing areas plus a tiny beach. I personally wouldn't recommend it as a place to... More

20 euros for two beds and a parasol - you could spend the whole day there, come and go as you pleased and steps leading into the sea for a swim. People with children didn't seem to use this which was a big plus on our part. You had a pool size area of sea roped off giving you a... More

We walked to this place from Sorrento town center (around 20 mins walk) twice during our stay in July 2014. This was a quiet corner of Sorrento, with a small beach, fishermen's boats, and waterfront restaurants. Quite enjoyable with sea breeze, best to visit before sunset when you can sit down for a long dinner beside the sea. There was... More

The Marina Grande is absolutely beautiful, with very good and very cheap restaurants. The surroundings are the same and beautiful see views. Just sitting there and watching people pass by is bella, bella. Sorrento is simply a dream.

Lots of bookable boat trips, regular bus back to the top, 129 steps down, too hot to climb back up! Couple of restaurants serving nice cool drinks while you wait for your ferry.

Located in the main town, you can take a boat there and go explore Capri, Ischia, Amalfi Coast, etc. Very nice restaurants nearby and one of the best sunsets I ever saw in my life.

This is a busy marina, pretty but a long walk down and particularly back up! There isn't much down there apart from fish restaurants although these looked pretty good!

We do not enjoy sitting on the beach and, as usual, for Sorrento the loungers are packed side by side. We hired a pedalo (motor boats, canoes etc also available) from Maria and Ronato, 10 euros for an hour, cream umbrella at the right hand end of the beach as you face the church. If you go to the rocky... More
