Owner description: Just a few steps away from the old town and the marina, on Sperlonga's most beautiful beach, the Lido Grotta dei Delfini provides its guests comfortable, generously-distanced umbrellas and a wide range of additional services. Besides swimming and sunbathing, the Lido offers varied catering options, beach tennis facilities and part-time children's entertainment (between 4 and 6 pm during weekends and the whole month of August) in a relaxed, customer-friendly atmosphere.

“Sophisticated, Simple and pure Splendor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

There are few places that are as special as Sperlonga, with the Grotta Dei Delfini establishing why it is such an enchanting place. Newly renovated in the summer of 2013 (after apparently disastrous fire), this beach establishment is incredible!

My family has made a point to stay a week every summer in Sperlonga, and go to the beach of Grotta dei Delfini.

The Grotta dei Delfini, in addition to Sperlonga in general, is definitely a well kept secret among Italians. This is not a typical tourist destination, but overhearing conversations on the beach, you can tell that it attracts people "in the know".

Whether it be a famous soccer player looking for a low key yet sophisticated escape, or a couple traveling from the states, you can see that the Grotta dei Delfini is a go-to place.

Everything from management to the kitchen is put together quite nicely. I know its family run for a long time, so the experience is there, and the place is run very professionally.

The best times to go are clearly early July and late June, when it is quite enough to have the place practically to yourself. In August, as vacations are in full swing, it is hard to find a place on the beach, with many people reserving spots a year in advance.

Overall, this is one of the most coveted spots on the beach in Sperlonga, and with the new renovation, seems that its future looks quite bright.
