Every summer, Ischia’s beaches attract countless visitors, tourists and locals to the many bays of the island. Those who prefer things a little quieter should come in the low season from September to June, when the idyllic spots by the sea are not taken over by masses of tourists. The beaches can be easily reached by boat as well.
Bay of Sorgeto (Baia di Sorgeto)
The Bay of Sorgeto is known for its hot springs, allowing visitors to even take a dip in the water during the winter months – something which is particularly beautiful at night under a clear starry sky.
Citara Beach in Forio
A flat sandy beach with pristine white sand attracts visitors and bathers. The thermal park of Poseidon Gardens in the bay are as romantic as the sunsets on the island. The beach owes its name to Venera Citera, the goddess of beauty – and for a good reason!
Maronti Beach in Barano
More than three kilometres long, this is the longest sandy beach on the island of Ischia. Several hot springs are also found here.
Swimming in winter is no problem at all in Cartaromana – thanks to the hot springs. The beach is around 300 metres long and is close to Aragonese Castle.
The beaches on Capri are absolutely beautiful and world-famous for their grottos. Yet they can often be partly cragged and, because of the danger of falling rocks, swimming is not allowed everywhere. If you take care and precaution, however, then there is nothing to be said against a refreshing dip in the stunning turquoise waters.
Marina Grande Beach
Located in the north of Capri, this is the island’s largest beach. Sunloungers and parasols make a visit here particularly pleasant, especially in the hot summer months.
This beach is found close to the famous Blue Grotto and, with its crystal-clear waters, is absolutely divine for swimming.
Cala Ventroso Beach
Simply out of this world – this beach can only be reached by boat. Its proximity to the beautiful grottos makes this beach an ideal destination for a day’s excursion.
