Prior to this trip, I’d been to Europe several times before but I discovered Capri’s true beauty this summer. I had previously been to the island, but only on a very there and back. This time, however, I got a chance to grab dinner, spend a night, and even do some damage in the piazzeta.
Tip: get the earliest ferry possible to enjoy Capri since morning, the ferries usually range from 20 to 30 euros and they come and go every other hour but stop exactly at 5:15pm so if you need to get back to another destination make sure you make it by 5pm to the port to not miss your ferry.
After checking-out from my Positano hotel, I grabbed a ferry that took me directly from Positano’s port to the port in Capri. I stayed in Anacapri which is five minutes away from Capri’s center, but to be honest wherever you stay, the views are amazing.
We really wanted to go to Fontelina beach but it was sold out by a private party going on … a lot of people recommended me that beach club and apparently it is the most popular one, if you end up going make sure you reserve 2 weeks beforehand because that place has high demand (we will have to come again just to check it out hehe) … since we couldn’t make it to the beach club we went the safe way and went down to Marina Piccola, which is the most populated beach in the island.
The view in Capri is breathtaking. The coast is filled with sailboats, yachts, and miles of blue. I went to the Marina Piccola where the beaches can be accessed by foot downhill, but make sure to take the bus if you are going uphill. The beaches were packed with people from all over the world enjoying their touristy fun in the sun.
If you want my opinion for restaurants anywhere is good but we went to this really good one called Georgios, fully local Italian with amazing wine and great service (we were the last ones to leave as always) … don’t forget to rent a boat in Marina Piccola as well! There are group boats or private ones … if you want to splurge get the private one but either one is worth it!
Make sure to grab a drink before dinner at the piazetta. In the piazetta there were shops and restaurants all around. The place is consistent with bright colors and people with head-turning resort wear. Of course, Prada caught my attention and I walked in and got myself a little souvenir which I’ll soon post on my IG. But the handcrafted artisan details sold on the streets were also amazing. The people late at night would come out all dressed nicely and ready for dinner. Being there, you can tell that Capri is a luxurious vacation destination and still to this day one of my favorite travel destinations.
