La Fontelina - Capri

Have you ever seen that gorgeous Dolce e Gabbana perfume commercial? The one where the bikini-clad model emerges from the turquoise waves like a sea goddess? Well, that commercial was filmed right here.

Before becoming one of the most beautiful and exclusive beach clubs in the world, the Fontelina di Capri was simply a place. A hidden, magical cove known only to locals at the foot of the Faraglioni, where the deep blue water reflects the sparkling Mediterranean sun on the dramatic cliffside, and the only sounds are the waves and the sea breeze.

Already during Roman times, a string of emperors and their courts had discovered this breathtaking beach, and made it their chosen seaside pleasure retreat. And with this winning mix of natural beauty and historic charm, the Arcucci and Gargiulo families have both conserved and shared the Fontelina with visitors for more than 50 years. Their hospitality is legendary, and their cuisine is unique and unforgettable; this is the perfect place to spend a day enjoying Capri's coast, stretched out on the soft beach mattresses directly on the rocky cliff, and sipping from a pitcher of sagria brought directly to you along the water's edge.

Complete your day at the seaside with lunch at their seafood restaurant (how could it be anything else, perched directly above the Mediterranean?). They serve only lunch, so if you would like to dine there during your stay on Capri, we strongly suggest you reserve once you arrive on the island.

La Fontelina: Location

You can reach Fontelina by private boat or on foot, via the little path which starts just beneath the Punta Tragara viewing point. For the return journey, Fontelina provides a shuttle boat from the beach club to Marina Piccola.

From Marina Piccola the center of Capri is just a short bus or taxi ride away.
