Beach holidays in Campania

 

Campania is home to several famous destinations and sights: buzzing Naples, glamorous Capri and the beautiful Amalfi coast, along with Mount Vesuvius and Pompeii.

The region also has a good selection of beaches and enough variety in its other sights and activities to suit all types of traveller, including families and couples. It does tend to get particularly busy during the peak season, so it may be worth considering visiting in May and June to benefit from warm temperatures while avoiding the largest crowds.

Gulf of Naples

The Gulf of Naples is home to the bustling city of Naples and lies in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. The best beaches are to be found away from the mainland, however, on the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.

Procida’s best beaches are Pozzo Vecchio and Chiaiolella, while its pastel-coloured buildings and 16th century Castello d’Avalos are also top attractions here.

Marina Piccola is the pick of Capri’s beaches. Capri’s other attractions include its Roman ruins, buzzing bars and cafes, and some beautiful old villas that are well worth exploring.

Visit Ischia to find the most scenic beaches of all, including Spiaggia dei Maronti and Spiaggia Citara. Strangely, Ischia is the most developed but attracts fewer visitors than Capri, making it a great place to head to if you want to avoid the crowds. Its south coast is particularly quiet and scenic.

 

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is one the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula in Salerno and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List as an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape thanks to its coastal mountains, pretty villages and forests.

The beaches are nestled between the cliffs and the sea and include Duoglio Beach near Amalfi itself, Furore Beach (which is situated at the end of a fjord) and Conca dei Marini. Marina Grande di Amalfi is the main beach in Amalfi but can be pretty busy as a result.
