Just enough beach (brown volcanic sand!) to catch some rays and paddle in the sea, many benches, plenty of eateries and shops to grab a drink and a pier to view beach huts or Vesuvius from. Can be accessed from some steps near the hospital...More

While it hurts me to say this it has to be done. Yes Sorrento is beautiful, yes the food is fantastic, yes the Italians are so friendly and welcoming but pollution on the Amalfi coast is being ignored to such an extent by officials and...More

We were lucky enough to be in Sorrento in July when the Festival Of St Anna was on and the whole marina was lit up. We slowly strolled from one end of the marina to the other in amazement before having a beer in Nonna...More

Good selection of places to eat. However, although a sign points to public toilets, they are closed. We found this the only draw back in Sorrento.Hardly any public toilets anywhere, and those that existed were absolutely disgusting. There is a bus service from this harbour,...More

Pretty place, and typical of the photos you see. We preferred Marina Piccolo, but it is a matter of choice.

Great service, food and warm welcome. Their cocktails are amazing. If you are pure vegetarians, chef will make all attempt to tailor menu to your needs.

This is the best bay in Sorrento. There is a lot of local family type eateries. Nothing flash just a good meal at a good price with lots of atmosphere. Very busy at night for food.

Stumbled across this oasis of calm by accident, always the best method of finding hidden gems! A short walk from the madness that is down town Sorrento, surely worth every step, however steep. A small bay of bobbing fishing boats, its sedge lined with surprising...More

It’s a steep walk down (and back up!) the steps to the quaint harbour, but plenty of pavement cafes to choose from, whether you prefer to sit in shade or sun. Fishermen’s boats and the fishermen mending their nets mingle with pleasure craft and a...More

This is a great place to have a drink and grab something to eat. Extremely pretty during the day and night. This is a must stop when staying in Sorrento for more than a day. I would not recommend walking here should you have mobility...More

Took a stroll down to the Marina Grande one afternoon and was very disappointed. It's the only place in Sorrento where there was a significant amount of litter. The beach area was covered in plastic bottles, cans and hundreds of cigarette butts. Didn't linger there...More

Hello there, from the Piazza Tasso you can either walk along Corso Italia (the main road) or down 'the drains' Via. S. Cesareo and Via Fuoro. At the end if the drains you will see a few paths that lead down to the Marina... More
