The smaller of the two harbors on the island, Marina Piccola has a more laid-back vibe than Marina Grande. The attraction offers a gorgeous view of the Faraglioni across turquoise water, and it is home to the famous Siren's rock, where it is rumored that mythical sirens seductively sang to Odysseus. This marina is a great place to spend the day at the beach, as the warm ocean and charming small beaches provide ample opportunity for relaxation. Just beware that the sun leaves the bay at around 4 p.m.

Recent visitors who swam at Marina Piccola praised the warm water temperature, while others were pleased with the variety of cafes surrounding the beach.

To access Marina Piccola, you can take a taxi or public bus from Capri. You'll enjoy the switchback road that leads to the marina, and you'll be stunned by the views of the Mediterranean. There are numerous restaurants and bars at the harbor, but there aren't many public restrooms or places to change, so plan accordingly. This attraction is free and always open, though it is better to visit during the warmer months. If you want access to a beach chair or umbrella, you'll need to rent from a beach attendant.

#1 Mount Solaro

The tallest mountain on Capri is also a top attraction on the island. From the top, you can see most of Capri's major towns and points of interest; however, you can also see the Bay of Naples and the distant Amalfi Coast. Past reviewers said a trip up to the top does not disappoint, with some calling it the experience of a lifetime. Plus, a chairlift from Anacapri will take you from the town to the summit in only 12 minutes. In your rides up and down, you'll pass quaint farms, local vegetation and pristine neighborhoods. If you'd prefer the challenge of climbing the mountain yourself, you can take the trail from Anacapri, which takes between an hour and 90 minutes.
