From Sorrento, either take a bus to Capo or (if you are staying at the superb Hotel Bristol - on which I reported earlier) walk along via Capo to the village. When in the centre of the hamlet, take a right turn down a narrow road towards the sea. The walk down is fairly gentle, and flanked by buildings to... More

We rented a two person kayak at marina grande and the lovely woman we rented them from told us about this place to visit (a 20 minute leisure paddle from the harbor) and it was perfect. Our last day in Sorrento we didn't want to do anymore "excursions with guided tours" we wanted to go off the beaten path and... More

Having had a few days in the middle of busy Sorrento, we really enjoyed getting on the local (route A) bus, alighting at the Capo hamlet and walking the path to the Capo headland. It's about 10 minutes downhill along several 'footpaths' - though scooters and even small cars appear to get to the few properties en route, which include... More

A lovely example of a Roman Villa on the headland above Sorrento. 1km off the "main" road from Sorrento to Massa Lubrense. Easy walking.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this place. A tiny hidden inlet from the sea with crystal clear water! There are a few different spots to swim, although it'd quite rocky. Walk along the boardwalk and you will come to an American Bar with cold beer and light meals with an amazing view. Down the rocks a little... More

Just take the bus to Capo, too far to walk. It is a nice shady walk down the lane to the ruins of a Roman villa. Follow the little walk way to a secluded bar with great views and photo oportunities.

Loved this place long time!! Wasn't an overcrowded beach and the water was crystal clear. Close to M suites. You have to roll out a spot on the rocky ledges but so worth it.

This is possibly the best place to get that view you have always imagined this part of Italy looks like. A little bit of a walk through the town but well worth it at sunset.
