La Fontelina - CapriGo to the top
In the shadow of the Faraglioni, within steps of the crystal clear water lapping Capri's legendary sea stacks, there's a truly magical place: Fontelina.
One of the most beautiful beach clubs in the whole of Italy, Fontelina has been run with the same passion and enthusiasm for more than 50 years, by the Arcucci and Gargiulo families.
Book a day by the sea at Fontelina and you can expect to spend hours of blissful relaxation, bathing in the sun on one of the beach club's white linen mattresses, on the rocks, within millimeters of the sea!
To make your day at the foot of the Faraglioni even more unforgettable, you can lunch at Fontelina's highly acclaimed restaurant, savoring delicious local specialties prepared with the island's abundant fish and seafood.
The restaurant is one of the most popular on Capri and, especially if you're coming in the height of summer, you'll want to book your table as soon as you arrive on the island.
