Fontelina, Capri, Italy - Paradise on earth

"If there's a sea in Paradise, it will be exactly like the sea caressing Fontelina's beach..."

How would you spend the perfect day on the island of Capri? Swimming beneath the Faraglioni, soaking up the summer sun on a comfy beach lounger, eating freshly caught pezzogna in the shade of a pretty pergola, drinking a glass of sangria whilst the sun begins to set...

There's a place in Capri where you can do all this: the Fontelina beach club.

  • Fontelina is open
    from April 18th to October 13th 2019
  • Bathing establishment:
    every day from 9am to 7pm
  • Restaurant: open daily for lunch,
    from 12:00 noon to 3:00pm
  • Opening hours may vary according to the weather


Fontelina is situated opposite Capri's Faraglioni. You can reach the beach club on foot, via the little path which commences next to the Tragara viewing point. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes: the path winds its way down to the sea through the myrtle and broom bushes for a good 300 meters.

If you'd rather not make the uphill return journey on foot, you can take the beach club's shuttle boat to Marina Piccola and from there take a bus or taxi to the Piazzetta, instead.
