Where to swim in Capri between beaches
private and public beaches ?

We do not come to Capri for its large sandy beaches, there is none. The beaches are rare and small, often made of rocks or pebbles. These are often small coves, but where the clear blue water invites to dive from the rocks.

Although there are public beaches in Capri, most are private. Access to a lounge chair is around 25 €.

1- The beach of Marina Grande

In Marina Grande is the largest beach on the island, just west of the port. It is made of pebbles and is easily accessible. The free beach is at the end, at the level of the cliff. From there, boats lead to Palazzo a Mare, a beach further to the west. Being in the northeast of the island, the sun disappears at the end of the afternoon.

2- Bagni di Tiberio (Palazzo a Mare)

The pebble beach of Palazzo a Mare can be reached on foot or by boat from Marina Grande. One portion is free to access. There are also various establishments including a restaurant.
