Nice viewpoint but as we were staying close to centre of Sorrento it was a very long walk to get there , not easy to find and would not recommend unless you are staying on the Napoli side of town

We walked from the Hotel Belair about 20 minutes. The second right turn after Via Capo is not very obvious. There is a small store on the corner where you are supposed to turn. It's a nice walk but surely not for everyone. After the store keep following the signs. The road gets narrow and then turns into a foot... More

Punta del Capo is situated immediately west from Sorrento. It takes around one hour to hike from Sorrento. Punta seems to be popular picnic area among the local inhabitants. You can swim in the lagoon near the peak of the Punta.

They have certainly done a great job of expanding the swimming area below the Belvedere...delightful for swimming in the daytime, watching the glorious sunset or just enjoying a summer evening...sitting in the seats above it all!

The Punta del Capo is just down the peninsula from Sorrento proper and this location gives great views back towards town, panoramic coastline, the Mediterranean and Mount Vesuvius in the distance. You could walk down a ways to the rocky beach below. ....

With a little exploration you'll find many good places to take photos along and near the cliffs. This is one of the best and is worth the effort to get there, as the views are probably the most panoramic of the Sorrento portion of the Amalfi Coast. If you're looking for someplace right in Sorrento that's almost as good, try... More

This is a lovely setting to take some great photos. The ocean, the cruise ships, the beaches and Mt.Vesuvius in the distance all make it a hot spot for photographers. Its a lovely place to walk around for a view of sorrento too.

This is a great place to take a photo of Sorrento with all the marine traffic coming and going into the harbors. I was able to watch an open water swimming race one time when I was there. You never know what you will see unless you look.
