Also known as Sorrento Cap. About a 20 minute walk from the bus stop down so rough paths and steps. Your almost there when you pass the bathing pool. If you like sunbathing a great spot - if not look at the view and turn around. The roman ruins can be seen but for the best view see it from... More

We walked from Puolo Beach (another great out of the way spot) to Punta del Capo by taking the path to the left halfway back up the lane from Puolo . This lane does bring you out on the main road (go left when meet road) but you only have 250 mtrs (ish) before you come into Capo. There is... More

A group of ten friends found ourselves with a free day in Sorrento and had had enough shopping. We searched tripadvisor for a suggestion and quickly decided to try Punta del Capo. We didn't have enough time to read lots of reviews so we weren't sure what to expect. We were told to catch the EAS bus and get off... More

About a ten minute bus ride from Sorrento city center is a lane that leads to the point of the cape. Ask driver to let you off there because it isn't marked. From the bus stop walk toward the sea down a lovely lane lined with olive trees. There is a gorge where you can swim (no lifeguard) and a... More

Walk up from town out to the point. Take a break at the restaurant on the rocks. Dip into the sea. Watch surveyors and excavators uncover a roman ruin.

Take the bus to Capo and walk down the path to the beach. You can combine the visit with a walk around the Roman fort and a swim in the Regina Giovanna Bagni pool. At the point, there is only a rocky beach and a beach bar. The bar is good value and a lovely quiet spot for lunch. The... More

It's very easy to walk here from Sorrento if you don't mind a short steepish climb to begin with. On the main road heading west out of Sorrento (in the Positano/Amalfi direction) there's a cobbled zigzag drive (via Capodimonte) that rises steeply (it's opposite the road leading down to the "international camping" site). When you get to the entrance leading... More

Nice rocky beach with awesome views. Lots of flat rocks to lay out and bask in the sun. Not many shallow areas for children to wade around in. Nice, peaceful outdoor activity. It is a bit of a trek but jumping in the water made it all worth the sweating.

First, let me agree with everyone before me that if you are tired of the souvenir shops and tours and just need a day to decompress (but still want an adventure) then this is a definite possibility. The views are FANTASTIC!! Just a couple of pieces of information: - You can get to Capo by bus but make sure you... More

The swimming hole and view are so unique and beautiful. I recommend this spot for anyone visiting the area. Close by and lots of fun. Our best day in the Amalfi Coast!
