Great wild beach but beware of the strong surf (unpatrolled). Check it out at low tide because the rock pools are great. Also nice walks on the other side of the dunes

The back beach is a must on a trip down to sorrento, whether it’s to soak up the beautiful views, a hike around the national park or a relaxing lie down on the beach. It is incredible. But be prepared for a bit of wind!
