This is a small but beautiful cove only reachable be sea or a 6 mile walk. We went by boat. Delightful.

The path to Marina di Crapolla runs past our holiday apartment and I'd read previous reviews so we just had to visit. Down was easy but it's a good half hour of mainly steps til you reach this small secluded cove. It wasn't particularly quiet when we went (August) but nothing like the beaches you see elsewhere here with about... More

I am 9 years old and I went to Crapolla and I thought that it was amazing. My dad found a little grotto tucked into the side of the cove. I walked down the stairs and there were lots of lizards. My sister started climbing up the rocks and couldn't get herself down. There is a small chapel near the... More

Try Crapolla! And the reason the beach isn't crowded becomes evident when you've descended the 700 odd steps in full summer sunshine enticed by the twinkling blue of the cove below and remark to yourself - this won't be so good coming back up. When we got down to the beach (stony) there were a few kayakers and another couple... More

Wow, wow, wow. Very strongly recommended. Hike starts from church parking lot in Turca, which is also the bus stop for Turca, with a big sign that says "Crapolla," so you can't miss it. Get a good local map, the one they give out at the tourist office is fine. You'll notice that shortly into the hike, there are two... More

We had an awesome day walking to and from Crapolla; and let's face it, with a name like that we had to go once we found it. The route we took was from the church car park in the centre of Torca and the early section once you were on the edge of town was a bit slippery in the... More

This is just an unbelievable day hike! Fairly steep, but we had three people in their 50s, in average physical condition at best, and they made it just fine, albeit a bit slowly. The teenagers flew up and down with no problem at all. Bring water and food. Took us about 90 minutes down, and about 2 1/2 hours back... More
