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

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

We are a couple in our mid fifties and early sixties. We are relatively fit but certainly not athletes. This walk is very do-able but you need to make sure you have plenty of water, sunhats and good shoes. Also, try to do the walk...More

If you are looking to escape the tourist infused chaos that is Capri, this is an ideal escape route. We hiked the 2.25 miles from Anacapri to the Forta (accessible via local bus in lieu of walking. Note this bus uses different tickets than the...More

We went to Capri principally to go on this walk. It didn't disappoint. Go to the lighthouse, then back track on the road until you come to a sign for the first fort on the left. Just before the fort, on the right the trail...More

Well marked trail with interesting signs on the local fauna, flora, and history along the way. It's not hugely strenuous, but is up and down, and I suspect would be more challenging in Summer. You do need to take your own supplies.

You truly can see forever! Wear comfortable shoes, it’s quite a treck but worth every step. We started at the lighthouse and walked toward the Grotto Azzurra, easy to pace yourself and you need to do that so you can drink in the views. You...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... More
