Capri Beaches

A crowded beach in Capri

Capri is not famous for its beaches but for its beauty. So we would not suggest going there just for the beaches but if you around the crystalline water and the atmosphere may be deserving a nice sun bath.

Needed to say, do not expect sandy long beaches easy to access but mostly overcrowded tiny stretches of pebbles mixed with sand. Also most of them are private and it will cost you in between 10€ to 30€ to access to the seafront and beach. So be ready to pay for it.
