This is the third time that we walk the Fortina Coastal Walk (Sentiero dei Fortini Borbonici) and it is even more beautiful in October (the two previous walks was in March). Everything is greener and the see is bluer. The trail is rather steep and...More
We caught the bus to Faro. Was disconcerting the ticket booth was closed but we were able to purchase on board. The older buses are quite run down and the drivers pack you in like sardines. Which is great if you really want to get...More

We did it in flip flops it’s do-able but not recommended.

If you like walking, this is a must do walk in Capri. Well marked track taking you along the coastline. Flora and fauna signage is very interesting plus you go past a number of Napoleon era British forts and pass through farm land. Views is...More
We started the walk around 10am in August and immediately started sweating. However, we enjoyed every minute of the walk! It's not good for young children or people scared of heights. You do walk pretty close to the edge of the cliffs. That said, I'm...More
Maybe the most beautiful walk on Capri, don't miss this. Bring good shoes, lot's of water if it's warm and keep your eyes on the path. I wouls say that some experience helps here but it's propably ok anyway

We commenced the hike from the lighthouse end. A quick coffee from the cafe and we were away. So much time and effort has been committed into this paths construction and quaint signage it is a not right that more should not utilise this trail....More
This walk was a highlight for us. Well signposted throughout - both with the direction of the walk and lots of detail on flora and fauna - the views were magnificent - and the path largely very good. A download of the Avenza map of...More
The coastal path meanders, climbs and falls along the mountain side. Take training shoes. We walked from the lighthouse up to the Blue Grotto, which took about 3 hours (with rest stops, photo stops and at an easy pace). Parts of the path are exposed...More

I thought the best views were in the beginning of the walk when starting from the lighthouse. If you start there and go until the first fort, that would give you some good views without going too far. This part of the trail is an easy walk up and down, no cliffs, some paved surface with some dirt/trail sections. Should be well less than an hour round trip back to the lighthouse even if you walk slowly.
There is also a place where you can get on the trail from the road. It would save you some up hill walking but it's an unofficial entrance.

There are a number of bars and cafes that run beachclub facilities and they have shower options, however you may need to pay a small fee for this. You mention 'early morning swim', I'm not sure what time these cafes open... More
There are a number of bars and cafes that run beachclub facilities and they have shower options, however you may need to pay a small fee for this. You mention 'early morning swim', I'm not sure what time these cafes open either, so I'd recommend you ask at your hotel to see if they know the opening hours.
Enjoy, it is a fabulous place.
