Atmospheric Old Fishing Marina

Only a little ways out of town, but feels like a totally different place. Rustic, charming old fishing village feel. Nice walk down, visited twice, lots of fish restaurants.

The Marina Grande is well worth the visit, especially at night - we were taking the ferry back to Capri and the sunset was stunning - highly recommended.

A bit of a hike to get there, but to sit by the water was well worth it. We had a few hours to kill before catching the ferry to the island of Capri. I was with someone who knew the streets of Sorrento very well, so that made that easy. There were plenty of places to eat and drink,... More

The name is a bit misleading in that one would expect a big marina with lots of ferries etc but what one gets is a very pretty little marina which is well worth a visit.

There was something about this little picturesque fishermen village that delighted both of us and we spent a beautiful evening there. The dinner was on a covered large boat stationed on the water and of course we ordered fish. But what made us so mellow was the carafe filled with local wine, that we took our time sipping and they... More

Marina Grande to enjoy this special attraction of Sorrento I chose to do it from the balcony of the city near the church of San Francesco, from here you can enjoy a breathtaking view over much of the "Marina Grande" and can assure you will get amazing pictures.

We hiked down in January. It was nice to see - but there was nothing much open - so just took a few pics and hiked back. Very quiet in the winter.

Just a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento town is this delightful little fishing port and harbour, surrounded by picturesque houses, restaurants and an old church. The view across the bay was wonderful - Vesuvius seemed quite close, and the colourful fishing boats added to the scene. Unfortunately we couldn't find a cafe open - it was... More

We where there Dec.2014 and you really cant hide the beauty of the marina even in the winter it is a place to visit and enjoy. The fresh sea food is beyond words and can only be enjoyed at the marina. This is a definite must see place if you are in the area.

Walked up from Piazza Tasso; not easy to find out of season & ended up walking through building sites to get to it?! Totally closed up in Winter & freezing cold as seemed to be an arctic wind tunnel across the bay. Even the decking on what I guess were nice outdoors coffee spots in summer had been ripped up,...
