My wife and I took a day visit to the delightful and beautiful island of Capri on the 15th September, 2014. We first enjoyed some very good pizza and a pleasant walk to the garden of the Emperor Augustus where we enjoyed some wonderful views....More

Let's face it - Capri is going to be expensive, so I'm not marking the beach club down for this, but you do need to consider this value vs service received. However when I've read 'mattresses being thrown on rocks' I thought this must have...More

Every summer we spend a few lunches at Fontelina. The staff always welcomes us back as if we are family. The food is divine and the setting is perfect. Definitely a must if you go to Capri. Take the walk down and boat back. Fun!

We ate and spent the day at the "beach" and had a blast. I wrote "beach" because you don't actually get sand but rocks which makes it different. Our lunch was delicious with great service and they have us a great chair and mattress on...More

It's all about reservations. Just tell them what you want and the staff will handle it. I wouldn't stress, the whole idea is to relax and the Fontelina staff will handle everything.

I don't think that possible because of the limited amount of time you have and La Fontelina is not equipped for sip and dip excursions. Changing facilities and swimming areas are for guests that reserve space.
