“It is full of tourists”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Capri is very small islands, but very popular and all boats come to this Marina Grande and it is always crowded during the day and full of tourists, so it is not so nice when you come to relax. But it is nice early in the morning or at night to have a coffee or drink.

“Grande indeed”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

This harbor is the entry point to the Isle of Capri, from here you can arrange a boat trip around the island or venture into the towns.

“Speed boat heaven”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Rent a speed boat at the marina for about €100 and ride around the coast, it's the coolest thing. You can pretend to be loaded for the day. My favourite thing to do in capri. Jump into the sea and swim into the grottos. Bliss.
The marina is full of hustle and bustle, great for having a beer and people watching.
It can be busy and I imagine during the summer it must be mad but it's nice to amble along, pick up a few souvenirs and enjoy the gorgeous view.

“Touristy and frenetic..”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Summertime here would be a nightmare.
With a flood of day tourists and those wheeling a suitcase this is one's first impression of the island…it gets better as soon as one is out of there.

Tourist shops with expensive cafes contact your driver, hail a taxi an the next time you'd be here is when sadly leaving the isle.

No redeeming features but friendly helpful locals makes it bearable.

“Port area for Capri”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

Marina Grande is the port where you arrive by ferry from Sorrento and Naples. It looks like a charming fishing village from the ferry but is a little grungy upon closer inspection. We were there in November and immediately caught a van to Anacapri and later to Capri for the bulk of our day trip to the Isle of Capri. You can also ride the funicular up to the town of Capri.

It is the working man's part of the island. You can catch a boat here to the Blue Grotto if the water is calm enough to get through the small rock entrance. Boat tours are also available to go around the island to see the coves and grottos.
