“Paradise on Earth but not in July/August”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

I have been spending my summer vacations here over the last 56 years and since 1965 I am a resident. Therefore my perception of this gem is strongly biased. The past somehow obliterates the present. It was a fishermen village and nowadays is trying to become a toristic resort with a well defined personality.... failing, badly failing.... You cannot put together refined or at least self-declared refined restaurants and a camping which accepts everybody playing loud and disturbing music till very late at night, or allow everybody to disturb with loud music and noise
You cannot conjugate small beaches with mass tourism or no parking places with loads of daily commuters...
Therefore if you want to visit, come here in late September or in May... when the camping is closed, the restaurants are not overcrowded, the beaches are empty and the water is still warm enough to allow a good swim. Rediscover the pleasure of old fashioned (not highly priced, nouvell cucine parvenues) restaurants such as Lo scoglio, or Esterina or Le Sirene. Enjoy the pleasure of a sunbath at Mary's Beach or rent a boat a la cooperativa..... and rediscover paradise

“Might not want to go in October”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Picked this area because of its isolation and relaxed environment. What we did not anticipate is how completely empty it was. Bare-bones staff at every hotel and restaurant. While everyone was very pleasant, sometimes it felt as if we were more like intruders than guests. Still, great memories.

“Nice protected not crowded beach”

Not full of tour buses. Famous restaurant taverna del Capitano. Can get there on a calm day by boat from Capri, Sorrento, or Positano

“Lunch, beach and walks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The village seems remote but immensely popular at peak season. You can get here by sea, car or regular bus service from Sorrento. If you drive, go through Massa Lubrense keeping to the right. You'll have splendid views of Capri. At Marina itself there are plenty of excellent restaurants to choose from. If you want a great before or after lunch walk, turn to your left facing the beach and wind up to the coastal path which goes to the next bay (where there is also a restaurant accessible only by sea). On the way you'll pass a ruin Saracen tower. The path is full of wild flowers in the spring.
