La Fontelina - Capri

Go 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.

4/5 26 September 2015

A lunch there is full of fun and atmosphere. Not cheap but it's good food. A beach type environment - without any sand. There are day beds on the rocks if that's your sort of thing. But we just went... more »

La Fontelina: Location

Back to the top

You can reach Fontelina by private boat or on foot, via the little path which starts just beneath the Punta Tragara viewing point. For the return journey, Fontelina provides a shuttle boat from the beach club to Marina Piccola.

From Marina Piccola the center of Capri is just a short bus or taxi ride away.
