Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Campania / Province of Naples / Island of Capri / Capri / Natural Arch
Towering 18 m (59 ft) above the ground stands Natural Arch. As the name suggests, a collapsed limestone grotto along the coastline of Capri has formed this shape, which provides a natural window into the deep turquoise lagoon below. The arch, spanning 12 m (39 ft) wide, is believed to have been from the Paleolithic age. You can take a short hike from the nearby town that winds through narrow streets and past villas and colorful gardens to the arch. Wear proper walking shoes, and be prepared to climb many steps. With our online itinerary creator, Capri attractions like Natural Arch can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Perfect! Enjoy this early in the morning before the people all arrive. Serene and picturesque. Tuesdays the restaurant- bar Grotto is closed so more quiet than usual.
Amazing rock formation that can be seen as part of a boat tour. You can pass through the arch. Some cool caves and swimming areas nearby. I would highly recommend Capri Whales if you're looking for a tour provided. We had an amazing time!!
