When pronouncing the word Sorrento, one immediately thinks of the sea. You can capture its scent and imagine its beaches.
From Vico Equense to Massa Lubrense and Capri; is a succession of beaches where one can sunbathe admiring the majestic Vesuvius which stands out from across the bay.
The Beaches in Sorrento Coast start from the Scrajo with its natural hot springs, then Marina of Aequa, surrounded by high cliffs.
The nearby Meta, just 3 kilometers far from La Terrazza, is notable for the large sandy beach Alimuri.
There are also seaside resorts in the charming seaside village of Cassano in Piano di Sorrento; with under the spectacular terrace of Marinella, in Sant’Agnello is its homonymous beach.
Volcanic sand and shallow water, suitable for children, features the beaches of Marina Piccola and Marina Grande, Sorrento.
At the Capo di Sorrento, greeted by acres of olive groves, you can dive off the cliffs of the Queen Giovanna; a few meters from the remains of a Roman villa which belonged to the nobleman Pollio Felice. Just beyond, an area LGBT-friendly: the wide expanse of rocks La Solara.
La Marinella in Sant’Agnello is a small black “sand” beach. This was the greatest little treasure. Like most “beaches” in the area it’s not really sand, but rocks and pebbles. However, this was very pleasant, the pebbles are minuscule and there is a small inlet that blocks waves and is very calm. If you want to swim in the ocean proper just walk over the cement dock and climb in, it’s fantastic. The price is about average, 10 euro for a lounge chair for as long as you like, plus there are servers around if you do not want to sit in the restaurant who can bring your food to you.
The beaches in Sorrento Coast are beautiful. But it is Massa Lubrense, just seven kilometers from Sorrento, to host some of the most beautiful sea resorts of the Sorrento Coast. On the border with Sorrento, is Marina di Puolo, equipped with parking and other facilities. Another fisherman village is Marina della Lobra, whilst in Marina del Cantone, Nerano; there are several white pebble beaches, where crystal clear waters dominate the scenery.
Following foot paths and trails, from here you can reach the many inlets and coves of the Bay of Ieranto, natural beauty managed by the FAI Italian Environment Foundation.
