Marina Piccola of Capri
This natural, protected harbor on the south side of Capri is one of the most enchanting spots on the island. Here you'll find the gorgeous scenery of crystal-blue water, yachts moored off the shore, and the beautiful backdrop of the Faraglioni, which are the symbol of Capri. There are chic beach establishments, along with some more casual spots, too.
Marina Piccola is a contrast to Marina Grande, with its larger port for the ferries, its shop-lined street, and sleek funicular to the center of town. Here you'll find meandering pathways that lead to coves and scattered restaurants and beach facilities. It is a beautiful spot where you can swim amidst the rocks, gaze at the enormous and costly boats that pass through and give Capri its glitterati title, and enjoy a seafood lunch at a breezy water-side eatery. You can sunbathe on the rocks, rent a kayak, or hire a boat to take you to a hidden cove.
There are a few options for arriving in Marina Piccola. You can take a bus from the town of Capri or Anacapri. You can walk the paved, steep, switch-backed street called Via Krupp that leads down from town. There are open-topped taxis that can bring you down along the road. Or you can hire a boat from Marina Grande to give you a little tour around the island, dropping you off in Marina Piccola.
