4 Things To Do On A Day in Capri
Capri is a gorgeous, upscale island in the Bay of Naples, just a 30 minute boat ride from Sorrento, and 50 minutes from Naples. Many people take a ferry there for the day since the hotels there are very luxurious and pricey. My friend and I took a boat there from Sorrento and had an amazing day exploring the island's intricate grottoes and stunning ocean-side cliffs. Make the most of your time in Capri with the tips below.
1. Rent a boat around the island
The best way to take in Capri's stunning coastline and grottoes, colorful marinas and famous Faraglioni rocks are by boat. When I went in June the water was a gorgeous turquoise and it was so fun to jump off the side of the boat, with the Faraglioni rocks in the distance.
2. Take in the views from Anacapri or the Gardens of Augustus
In Capri, most people take the chairlift to the island's highest point, Anacapri, for a sweeping view. However, when we were there it was pretty cloudy up until an hour before our boat left (hence the majority of these photos were taken in that timeframe). Since we didn't want to waste our time going all the way to the top for a hazy view, we went to the Gardens of Augustus which is right in town, where you can see the Faraglioni rocks from a lower perspective.
3. Walk around town
Although not a highlight for me compared to the views along the water, Capri's town has lots of high-end clothing stores and restaurants to peruse. My favorite part was the bougainvillea lining the shops. There's also a stellar view of white homes tucked in the sides of cliffs, which reminded me of Greece.
4. Go for a swim at Marina Piccola
The beach at Marina Piccola was one of my favorite little beaches on the Amalfi Coast. It's a bustling area with boats coming in and out, but it feels secluded with the rocks that surround it.
