Best beaches in Sorrent

Looking at the picturesque coast of Sorrento, it is hard to believe that these beauties are of natural origin: rocks of bizarre shapes, fragrant citrus trees, a warm sea playing with sapphire and turquoise hues, and sparkling southern sun. The local species inspired artists and poets from around the world. Sorrento called Goethe, Nietzsche, Rossini, Stendhal, Dickens and many other prominent people their home. Representatives of the royal dynasties, wealthy businessmen from Europe and America consider it a good form to have a modest villa in this unusual area.

The city of Sorrento perched on the rocks, so the descent to the Gulf of Naples cannot be called simple. Bathers will have to go along steep paths or down stairs, but tourists quickly get used to the minor inconveniences that cannot ruin the long-awaited vacation.

Most beaches are paid, because they belong to hotels or the municipality, you will have to pay from 5 to 15 € for entry. If you try, you can find free plots, but for the use of sun loungers and umbrellas you have to pay about 3-4 €.

In most cases, it will be necessary to rent these attributes of a comfortable beach holiday, since the coastal strip is very narrow, and it is hardly possible to settle a towel in the aisle in order to sunbathe.

Almost all beaches are west of Sorrento. Moreover, the closer the beach is to the tip of the peninsula, the more rocky and harsh it is. Only a few sandy areas securely hidden in chamber bays are accessible.
