In Meta di Sorrento, this beach has a long seafaring history. Once a popular port, it was a harbour for fishermen, naval ships and boat builders, and it was a primary commercial port for the Kingdom of Naples. Today it is one of the Sorrentine Peninsula's best beaches, with a long strip of sand that is backed by cliff walls that are sprinkled with caves carved out of the tufo rock. The cliff provides a sheltered effect while opening up to lovely sea views. There are hotels and apartments along the main road.

There are free sections of open sand as well as commercial beaches where vendors offer umbrellas and lounge chairs for rent. Some snack bars and restaurants are available as well.
