TOP 5 Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water

The Famous Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water

The Amazing Faraglioni Capri Rocks in Water – The Faraglioni are the famous Capri Rocks in Water and are one of the most popular attractions on the island. When you arrive on the island this fact is absolutely not surprising because the Faraglioni Capri is a true natural beauty to be admired from 1000 angles.

So what are the best points or ways to see the Faraglioni of Capri? Here is our list of the best spots to see them from!

  1. From the boat also passing under the Faraglioni Capri
  2. From the Belvedere Tragara
  3. From the Via del Pizzolungo
  4. From Monte Solaro
  5. From the Gardens of Augustus

1. The Faraglioni Capri from the sea

There is nothing more impressive in Capri than the magnificent Faraglioni. The Faraglioni in Capri are a real attraction. You can admire them from different viewpoints such as the Belvedere di Tragara, from the gardens of Augustus, or from Monte Solaro but the best way to admire them in their majesty is directly from the sea.

Arriving by boat in front of the Faraglioni remains the best and most exciting way to admire them. Even more exciting is to pass under the natural arch of the central Faraglione.

A tradition linked to the passage under the Faraglioni says that anyone kissing under the Faraglioni will remain together forever!

2. Faraglioni Capri from the Belvedere Tragara

The Amalfi Coast is a special place but even more special is the island of Capri. The Island of Capri has several attractions. The Faraglioni of Capri are certainly one of the main attractions of the island. How to see them without boating? No problem! There are several panoramic points from which to see the Faraglioni.

Right on the side of the Faraglioni, there is a beautiful panoramic terrace: the Belvedere Tragara. From Belvedere Tragara you can admire the sea and the fantastic and very famous Faraglioni of Capri, even if in my opinion the angle is not the best. Either way, it is absolutely a must-see in Capri.

How to get to Belvedere Tragara?

The Belvedere Tragara is only about fifteen minutes walk from the Piazzetta of Capri and to get here you walk through the streets of the center where there are the shops of the big names in haute couture.

From the Piazzetta di Capri, you have to head towards the main street, that is Via Vittoria Emanuele, and follow it until you reach the square you see in the following photo.

Once you get to this square you have to turn left. As you can see, on the wall there are tiles on which it is indicated what can be reached by following that particular direction. In fact, if we go into the small street on the right we arrive at the Gardens of Augustus, if we go to the left and follow the signs instead we can reach the Belvedere Tragara.

Turning left you will pass along the famous street where there are the shops of the big names in high fashion or Via Camerelle.

At the end of the street, you will find the indication for the Belvedere Tragara and the Faraglioni Capri. Pay attention because otherwise, you are on a street that only leads to houses and from there you cannot reach the Belvedere Tragara. In any case, to reach the Belvedere Tragara you have to turn left into Via Tragara.

At this point just follow the road to see the beautiful show of the Faraglioni!

3. Faraglioni Capri from Via del Pizzolungo

Belvedere Tragara is also the starting point of a spectacular walk that leads to other panoramic points. In the Piazzale del Belvedere Tragare you will find the sign, containing the map of the area, which you can see in the following image.

From this sign, we can go down the stairs or follow the descent that is to the right of the Belvedere Tragara and follow the Via Tragara.

To do this route we advise you to wear comfortable shoes because some points are well paved but others are more like a path! In the following video, you can see part of this path.

At a certain point, the Via Tragara ends and you are in Via del Pizzolungo. It is at the very beginning of this street that you find the Pizzolungo viewpoint which was also marked on the map above.

The walk you have to do to get to Pizzolungo is certainly rewarded by the beautiful panorama. From Via del Pizzolungo you can see the magnificent Faraglioni of Capri and the bathing establishment “Luigi ai Faraglioni Capri” from above.

In the following video, you can see the panorama from Pizzolungo at sunset. Watch the video!

4. View of the Faraglioni from Monte Solaro

We are at the top of Monte Solare Anacapri. We went up to Monte Solaro in Anacapri by chairlift. During this ascent, we have already had the pleasure of enjoying the view from the top of Capri but what we see when we reach the top of Monte Solaro is something unique: a wonderful view of the Faraglioni of Capri.

5. The Faraglioni of Capri from the Gardens of Augustus

Last but not least is the view of the Faraglioni of Capri from the Gardens of Augustus. In the following videos, you can see the Faraglioni from the Gardens of Augustus and other videos also shot at the Gardens of Augustus.

How to get to the Gardens of Augustus?

From the Piazzetta di Capri head towards the main street of the center or Via Vittorio Emanuele, go all the way and at a certain point, you will find yourself in another square as you can see in the following image.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 8

Amalfi Coast best beaches – Let’s see together some of the Amalfi Coast best beaches.

  1. Positano Beach
  2. Il Duoglio Beach
  3. Marina di Praia Beach
  4. Lido di Castiglione Beach
  5. Sorrento beach

Positano Beach

Positano is of course one of the best Amalfi Coast towns so we place its main beach at the top of the Amalfi Coast best beaches. The main beach of Positano is the Spiaggia of Marina Grande. This beach is not only the main beach of Positano but also the most photographed because it is very scenic.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 9

If we want to enjoy the beautiful sea of ​​the Amalfi Coast, however, we must choose well where to position ourselves.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 10

The Spiaggia Marina Grande of Positano has an area dedicated to free beaches and another area dedicated to bathing establishments. The free beach is located on the right looking at the sea, right next to the embarkation of the motor ships. This causes some problems for swimmers who would like to relax in peace on the free beach and swim.

Top 5 Summer in Amalfi Coast best beaches 11
The free beach of Positano on 18/08/21 at 4:30 pm

Especially in the middle of August, when you get to the maximum crowding of this portion of the beach, the experience can be totally negative! The portion of the beach is limited, therefore extremely crowded and not always clean. The sand is large, dark, and difficult to remove. In addition, the great comings and goings of motorboats make the air not well breathable because it is full of smog.

A completely different experience is lived a few meters away in the area dedicated to bathing establishments! The further you move away from the free beach, the more you will find peace, tranquility, pebbles instead of dark sand and it is pleasant to enjoy the sea.

It is incredible how passing from right to left on the beach of Positano you go from rags to riches in terms of comfort, but you also reach the stars in terms of costs.

In fact, it starts from a zero cost of the free beach of Positano, but with the disadvantages described above especially in high season, then moving on to the beaches such as the Lido Incanto which in August has a cost of about 50 euros for 2 sunbeds and 1 umbrella, until you reach the end of the beach and the cliff.

The end of the beach and the adjoining cliff is right where the exclusive La Scogliera Beach Resort is located. Here too, the more you push to the left with the position of the sunbeds, the more the prices rise. Here are some prices for September 2021 in the progression of the position. Of course, in August 2021 they were higher.

Going to the far left of Positano beach, in addition to finding more tranquility and less smog, we also have a fantastic view of the beach with Positano in the background: truly beautiful and unique!

Il Duoglio Beach Amalfi

The Duoglio beach is located near Amalfi. It is a very beautiful beach and is particularly appreciated for its crystal clear waters. It is suitable for those who want to relax on deck chairs, for those who simply want to relax on the shore listening to the waves of the sea that become more lively every time a boat arrives from Amalfi and it is also suitable for those who like to swim and snorkel.

Duoglio beach Amalfi how to get there?

The Duoglio beach can be reached by bus thanks to the staircase that connects the beach to the main road or by a boat service that leaves from the port of Amalfi. The boat transport service is usually paid but some beaches offer a private service included in the rental of beach umbrellas and beach chairs.

Scala Duoglio: How to reach the beach thanks to the staircase?

As we have just said above, The Duoglio beach can be reached not only by sea but also by bus, thanks to the staircase that connects the beach to the main road that runs along the Amalfi Coast.

For more details watch the following video:

Text of the video:

Hi everybody, we are sailing along the magnificent Amalfi coast, and we see two beautiful beaches. How to reach them? In this video, we want to talk specifically about the beach on our right: The Duoglio Beach.

You can get to this beach by boat from Amalfi but also by bus. If you look attentively, you can see the road that runs along the Amalfi Coast above this beach. The beach is connected to the road by a long staircase. But let’s take a closer look!

We arrive at the Duoglio beach from Positano by bus. The closest bus stop is Lone, a hamlet of Amalfi, a few steps from the staircase gate to get to the beach. As you can see, access to the staircase may be limited. In this case, the sign indicates that only those who have a reservation in one of the two bathing establishments can access the stairs.

We begin the descent along this staircase. The steps are said to be more than 400, but to tell the truth, we started counting them, but then we were distracted by the magnificent view and lost count.

As we go down, we have a different view of the beach below. A pleasant descent, as the view is breathtaking and downhill, the effort is reduced to a minimum. The fatigue is undoubtedly much greater uphill.

For this reason, if you do not want to face the climb, you can opt for the boat service that takes you to the port of Amalfi. You can opt for the paid service of the Amalfi Battellieri Group or, as in our case, the shuttle service included in the rental of sun loungers and umbrellas at the Lido Degli Artisti bathing establishment.

We have now arrived at the beach, ready for a beautiful day at the Duoglio beach. The adventure continues in the following video! Bye, see you soon!

The Duoglio Beach by boat

The Duoglio beach can also be easily reached by boat. The Amalfi Battellieri Group offers a transport service from the port of Amalfi to The Duoglio Beach and vice versa. In addition to this service, there is also the Lido Degli Artisti which transports free of charging its customers who have rented sunbeds and umbrellas for the day.

Text of the video:

Hi and welcome back! After a beautiful day at the Duoglio beach, it’s time to reach our next destination. It is 4 pm, and the shadow begins to arrive on the beach.

As we saw in another video, we arrived at this beach by bus, and then we went down the staircase that connects the road to the Duoglio beach.

For the return, we opt for the boat instead. In this way, we avoid all the uphill steps, and we have the pleasure of admiring this magnificent beach and Amalfi from the sea.

In our case, we use the Lido Degli Artisti service, but it’s also possible to take the boat of the Amalfi Battellieri Group. Let’s enjoy the beautiful view now!

Here is Amalfi! Do you want to see the rest of the navigation and Amalfi more closely? Watch the suggested video here that you also find in the description and comments!

Marina di Praia Beach

Marina di Praia beach: very characteristic as it is set between 2 fjords. The beach of Marina di Praia is not the best known but it is really very characteristic.

Watch the following video! The video is in Italian but you can enable the subtitle in your favorite language.

Text of the video:

Hello, we have just arrived in Praiano and more precisely in Marina di Praia. This beach is an extraordinary place, and during this video, we will get to know it better. You can get to Marina di Praia by bus or by car. Parking spaces are available here, even if they are limited. We are observing this magnificent beach from above, from the road where we find the bus stop. Below we see the beach set between 2 majestic rock walls.

Here we also find some hotels and restaurants. We go down to access the beach. The beach is very characteristic, and the sea is fantastic. The only negative note is that precisely because of the two side rock walls that make this beach so unique, the sun illuminates the beach only in the central hours of the day. However, we can go beyond this beach by following the path that runs along the coast to find other options to relax and swim. Let’s explore. To conclude, you cannot miss an excellent lunch on the beach.

Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view
Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view

It is an elegant restaurant with a nice view, good food and it is not too expensive. The staff is very friendly but at the same time professional.

For the food, we all appreciated the appetizer offered by the restaurant: Fiori di Zucca in pastella. It was very delicious. We also appreciated the ravioli because they had perfect combinations of ingredients: pesto, tomato and mozzarella di bufala was a great combination.

The pasta linguine with the lobster was delicious. The linguine were amazing because the taste was excellent and also the portion was big. Also, the lobster had a good size in the pasta for the price.

We also appreciated the dessert Delizia al Limone because it was super creamy, sweet and just the right amount of lemon.

The atmosphere is perfect because you have an elegant restaurant, with a special view on Positano, a good service, the people in the restaurant are friendly. Furthermore, there is also the music that makes your experience at the Tridente restaurant more special.

La Sponda

Eating in this restaurant is a really nice experience especially if you’re not on a budget because this restaurant is very expensive. La Sponda is very elegant and the menus offer a different taste and not simple dishes.

Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view
Top 3 Best restaurants in Positano Italy with a view: La Sponda.

The atmosphere is the best among all the restaurants in Positano. There were the mandolins and 2 men normally play and sing typical Italian songs and other famous songs such as the Godfather. They also come next to your table and they make you feel very special. Furthermore, the view is amazing.

It is not a good place for kids because the menu doesn’t contain typical food and the taste of these dishes may result in a little strange if you’re not used to eating it and you are used to eating simple food.

We could insert the Sponda to the very top of our list but it is very expensive and it is not for everybody.

La Tagliata

The Tagliata is very good, they give you huge portions and so you get a good value for your money. The quality of the food is good, they don’t give you fancy food but it’s homemade food, rustic.

The view of the Tagliata is excellent. If you go for the sunset you have an amazing view especially if you ask for a table close to the window in order to sit near the balcony because the view on the inside isn’t as good.

It’s a good place especially for families because it isn’t super fancy. You don’t need to dress up and it is also convenient because they bring you up with the shuttle and they bring you to the restaurant. In this way, you don’t need to worry about the drive because it’s not so easy to get here by car because in this area they are quite crazy drivers. ;).

The following video shows you the amazing view from this restaurant terrace at sunset time.

Terrazza Celè

Terrazza Celè is another good restaurant in Positano. It is located at the left of the beach if you have in front of you the beach and the sea. In this way, you can see Positano from a different point of view. Terrazza Celè is in fact at the opposite side of the restaurant Il Tridente.

Terrazza Celè is a very cute restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere and quite elegant. You can get to this restaurant on foot and you don’t need any transportation if your hotel is close to the center of Positano.

The food is good, the portions in the dishes are just right, well presented and you can spend a really good evening at this restaurant without spending too much if we consider Positano’s prices.

Last but not least the Delizia al Limone, one of the typical desserts of this area, was very good. A good balance between the cream and the sponge cake.

Best restaurants in Positano Italy without a view

There are other very good restaurants in Positano but that they don’t have a view. Here you can find the list of the restaurants in Positano we have selected for you.

  • La Taverna del Leone
  • Il Saraceno
  • Da Vincenzo

Da Vincenzo

It’s a very good restaurant. The panzerotti they have are very good because they are crunchy. The ravioli with scamorza, pomodori and melanzane were very appraciated in our table. The shrimp tempura was very good. The tempura was light but crunchy and they give you big shrimps.

The best dessert in this restaurant we have tasted is cheesecake with berries.

This restaurant offers a very good value for the price. They have very good food, the restaurant is nice and is located in Positano. You don’t need any transportation to get here if you stay in Positano.

Da Vincenzo, you don’t have the view but you can see an amazing view soon after you are out of the restaurant.

Il Saraceno

It’s a good restaurant, especially for the pizza. The pizza is very good for a good price in Positano. It’s a place where you can go with your family and a place where you can eat good Italian pizza.

The pizza is excellent and it has a good quantity of toppings in the middle and the crost wasn’t too big. For example one of our pizzas had good tomatoes, bufala and mozzarella. The crost was also cooked perfectly.

The location isn’t special because there is no view it is an easy place for a pizza. It’s a place where you can go with your children. About the service, the waiters are sometimes pushy but also friendly.

La Taverna del Leone

It’s not in the center of Positano but you don’t have a problem getting to the restaurant because they have a shuttle service. The restaurant is along the main road and you don’t have any view.

For the amount of food and the quality, the price is reasonable. They have scallops with bacon that are very good. We also liked the cheesecake but the best dessert was the Croccante con Torroncino: very delicious!

We appreciate the service because it wasn’t super professional but they were very reasonable to adapt the tasting menu to our needs. In fact in this restaurant, you can choose a tasting menu of 5 dishes.

Italian Amalfi Coast Towns

Sorrento

Sorrento has a big city center with many shops of any kind. It’s more like a city than a town and despite it’s a perfect place for shopping and where to spend the evening, this can make you lose the Amalfi Coast atmosphere.

Anyway, it has a very nice balcony on the sea where you can have your coffee or drink with a beautiful view. Then from Sorrento, you can see something you can’t see from Positano or Amalfi: the volcano Vesuvius.

In the summertime, I would prefer to stay in a more Amalfitan style town than in Sorrento. In low season, however, it’s the best place to be in.

If you are In Sorrento in summer for many reasons you can go to Marina Grande for a day on the beach. As I’ve already said it’s not the best beach on the Amalfi Coast but it’s cute.

In Marina Grande, there are many restaurants. Dinner in one of those restaurants, especially those in the see it’s a beautiful experience. You can enjoy the sunset on the sea.

Ravello is a town built on the side of a mountain. Consequently, you don’t have the beach in Ravello, but you have a beautiful view of the Amalfi Coast. If you want to relax on the beach, you can go to the beach or Amalfi or Castiglione Beach.

Vietri

Vietri is a town located at the end of the Amalfi Coast, near Salerno. It is a very characteristic town with a strong personality. Vietri Sul Mare is in fact the City of Ceramics. A walk through the streets of Vietri is definitely something to do on the Amalfi Coast.

When you walk around Positano you are immersed in Positanesi-style fashion, when you walk through the streets of Vietri Sul Mare instead you find yourself in a beautiful display of colors on ceramic. Ceramics are not only found in shops but Vietri is also an open-air exhibition of his art.

The ceramics cover portions of the walls, form the cornice of the staircase of the municipal villa and even the benches overlooking the sea are of many different colors.

If a lot of walking has made us hungry, we can satisfy our appetite with an excellent sandwich with the exquisite buffalo mozzarella that we find at the La Contadina shop. It is located not far from the municipal villa where we can go and enjoy it with a beautiful sea view!

When you think about Vietri, you think of its colorful potteries. You can’t go home without anything. Here you can buy very nice gifts for your family and friends.

As a result, maybe Positano is the best town to stay in especially in the summertime but not in the low season. Positano is the town most affected by the tourist seasons!

Precious Advises

For our own experience, we want to give you the following precious advice.

  • In August and the more busy seasons prefer the boat to the bus when you have to move. When there are many people, the bus times aren’t trustworthy and if the bus is full it doesn’t stop and it leaves you at the bus stop :(. The boat times are instead always right.
  • Do not pack too many things because Positano is full of stairs and it isn’t easy to arrive at your hotel with big and heavy bags. If you don’t want to renounce to some of your stuff use the porterage service. The porterage service brings your bags from the tourist port of Positano to your hotel. In this way, you’ll not have a heart attack 😉 if you’re not trained.
  • Avoid the 2 central weeks of August if you can. Too hot and too crowded.
