Ever since 1936, when the bathing establishment first opened, Da Luigi ai Faraglioni has been attracting a celebrity crowd: film stars, models, business magnates and politicians, all keen to spend a few hours bathing in the sea washing around Capri's legendary Faraglioni rocks.
Open from first thing in the morning until late in the afternoon, Da Luigi ai Faraglioni has been designed to offer customers everything they might need for a fabulous day on the beach: a large sea edge terrace, a snack bar, tiny sundecks which seem to merge into the rocks, luxurious beach cabins, supremely comfortable sun loungers, desk chairs and beach umbrellas.
And, after a morning spent swimming in the shimmering sea or lazing in the Mediterranean sun, what could be better than a leisurely lunch, savoring Capri's traditional cuisine and dishes made with the freshest of fish and seafood? Da Luigi ai Faraglioni's terrace restaurant is one of the island's finest: famous not only for its breathtaking location but also for the quality of its food and wine, served from midday until late afternoon.
For customers keen to visit the Grotta Azzurra and the other sea caves which characterize Capri's dramatically beautiful coastline, Da Luigi ai Faraglioni organizes boat trips, sailing all the way around the island. At the end of the day, as the sun begins to fall, holidaymakers can make the most of the bathing establishment's shuttle boat service and sail to Marina Piccola, from where the center of Capri is only a short bus or taxi ride away.
The Faraglioni are one of the symbols of the island of Capri. To reach Da Luigi ai Faraglioni, holidaymakers should make their way to the Belvedere Tragara, from where a pretty little path through the coastal pine trees leads down to the sea, the island's legendary sea stacks, and the bathing establishment.
