1. La fontelina
The small, luxurious and fantastic beach club on the island of Capri. Enjoy amazing views, top-class cliffside lounging, or a lovely Italian lunch.
A bit hard to reach, but when you do, you are rewarded with one of Italy’s most beautiful beach clubs. La Fontelina is an exclusive and luxurious seaside paradise situated opposite Capri’s Faraglioni. To get here by foot, you have to walk down a path (about 300 meters), starting next to the Tragara viewing point. If you don’t wish to climb up again, there is a beach club shuttle boat taking you to Marina Piccola.
Cliffs are combined with patches of beach at this naturally beautiful location, serving up some of the most amazing views over the ocean and the Capri coastline. Relax in the sun in one of the blue and white lounge chairs and cool off by taking the ladders leading down the sea. When hunger hits, the Fontelina restaurant serves fantastic seafood and pasta as lunch, accompanied by a great selection of wines and the legendary iced sangria.
2. Conca Del Sogno
Beautiful cliff terrace with sun loungers and direct access to the ocean, complemented with a small and lovely pebble beach—all in a fantastic and natural setting.
Set on a cliff terrace overlooking the Mediterranean sea, Beach Club Conca del Sogno is the perfect spot for some high-quality daytime peace and privacy. Located beautifully in the small village of Nerano, you can either arrive by a narrow road or by boat. The beach club is accessible for people staying at La Conca del Sogno, while outside guests have to pay a fee of €10-60 depending on which day.
Relax in a sunbed on the terrace, from which you can also get into the water conveniently by using the stairs, or grab a spot on the lovely, small pebbly beach. You can enjoy light lunches and refreshing, fruity cocktails from the bar.
Come sunset, and the bar and restaurant at Conca del Sogno turn into a vibrant and romantic setting right by the ocean. Indulge in traditional, fresh and local delicacies from both land and sea, or enjoy cocktails to the DJ beats of lounge/boss to deep house. Reservations are recommended.
3. Treville Beach Club
Reachable by shuttle boat from the pier in Positano, this beach club offers casual privacy in a small heavenly corner of the coast.
Located on Laurito Beach, a small heavenly corner of the Positano coast, the Treville Beach Club offers privacy and exclusivity in a fantastic and casual setting, perfect for a full day of beachside lounging. To get to the beach club you take a shuttle boat from the pier in Positano, departing hourly from 10.00.
Reserve sunbeds & umbrellas (€25), floating bean bags or a cabana and get into a full relaxation mood, just steps away from the Mediterranean. The friendly staff will take care of you all day, serving water, snacks, prosecco or whatever you are in the mood for.
4. Bagni D’arienzo Beach Club
Retro-all-orange sun beds and umbrellas mixed with a great location and fantastic cuisine and cocktails. What else do you need for a perfect beach day?
Known for its incredible location, cuisine and cocktails, Bagni d’Arienzo Beach Club Bar & Restaurant is also easy to spot (and easy to remember) thanks to the retro-all-orange sun beds and umbrellas. However, to spot them you have to get pretty close, as it is beautifully nestled between the cliffs on the beach of Arienzo in Positano.
The easy way to get to the beach club is by the shuttle boat available from the main pier in Positano, from 10.00 am until 1.00 pm, and from 3.45 pm until late afternoon. It takes about 10 minutes and is free if you have made reservations (which you should). Another, more adventurous option, is to walk about 300 stairs down to the beach.
Apart from orange sun beds, Bagni d’Arienzo Beach Club also offers a spectacular setting with fantastic views of the ocean, Li Galli Island, Positano houses and the surroundings. In the restaurant, you can enjoy the tastes of Positano and Amalfi Coast, ranging from delicious pasta to fresh seafood.
5. Da Adolfo
Beautifully set on Laurito Beach (next to Treville Beach Club, Da Adolfo itself might not look like the most stylish place around. But the shack-like building and complementing sun loungers come with a large pinch of chaotic charm, casual vibes and history. Founded already back in 1966 by Adolfo “Pinkerton” Bella, it has been a highly popular spot ever since.
With a fantastic waterfront setting, Da Adolfo is a great spot for a full day by the beach or just a fantastic lunch. The food served is homestyle Neapolitan, ranging from fresh grilled fish to mussel soup and lots of pasta. Enjoyed best with one or two glasses of local wine.
