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!

You can wonder around this beautiful place, walk by those streets specially if you do it between 2-5 p.m. it might be too hot if you do summer walk but you see none in the street and you can take pics or swim in the ocean, worth the walk around.

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.
