Punta Carena Lighthouse reviews
Nice views and a good option for an afternoon beach, as you will have sun for 2 hours longer, in comparison with other points on the island. more »
What a stunning position for the Lighthouse. Really stands out as you would expect but this is a very classic style and colour. Well worth a visit! more »
Best spot to watch the sunset in Capri. To get there, take the bus to Anacapri, and then another bus to Faro. Make sure you leave quickly after the sun sets otherwise there is a very long line for the bus back to town!
This is the quiet part of the island. Best to stick to the main road if heading there on foot. On really hot days you can encounter snakes if you are trekking down the mountain. Not the ideal time to get bitten.
