The closest thing to a spiaggia (beach) is the pleasant sandy stretch at the harbor at Marina Grande; if you want to just loll in the sun, nearby jetties sports the ubiquitous umbrellas and deck chairs. While it’s far smaller than the island of Procida in the Bay of Naples, this former fishing district has a glimmer of similarity with its pastel-colored houses, brightly painted boats and fishermen mending nets.

There are some earthy seafood restaurants here as well, serving fish from the morning’s catch.

  • Very friendly, simple place to stay. Quiet and peaceful, a simple breakfast, with good evening meals as an extra. Walking into Sorrento is a serious downhill and takes about fifteen minutes. Walking back is a very serious uphill, but there are buses and taxis if needed. Highly recommended at the price.

  • My favourite part of Sorrento. It's like traveling back in time as you walk down the cobbled, stepped narrow streets through the former port gate of the town down on to the old harbour. It's a view I'll never tire of. Bustling with working fishermen, tourists and locals. An abundance of restaurants and bars located on the quayside and piers jutting out in to the marina. It really is a picture postcard both by day and night.

  • Marina Grande is possibly a bit of an over the top name. It's really a small fishing port surrounded by seafood restaurants. It is beautiful though. Bit of a trek but worth it.

  • Beautiful spot with lots of traditional charm. We walked down early in the morning and had a delicious couple of hot chocolates right on the harbour watching the place come to life. Loved it.

  • Beautiful marina. A small fishing village. Although called Marina Grande it is the smaller or the two. Marina Piccolo being larger & where the boats to Capri sail from. Recommend you have the catch of the day at the restaurant at the right hand corner (with the sea in front of you). We had sea bream & swordfish fried potatoes & salad which was absolutely delicious. We walked down & slowly back up as there isn't a lift but local publiv white mini bus runs down & back up. Catch it from Piazza Tasso square.
