An island of jaw dropping natural beauty, excellent cuisine and shopping elegance with the jet set
A true jewel in the southern Italian Mediterranean. The island of Capri, a limescale rock set in the Gulf of Naples, is famed as a classy, stunning holiday destination. An island of contrasts from stunning panoramic sea walks to crowded mazes of luxury boutique shops, many say this means you either love or hate it. However, the latter is usually derived by day trippers who have not given it a chance. If you stay overnight, the crowds return to the mainland, the sun sets and you will discover a peaceful very romantic side to the island.
The famous Blue Grotto, with its enchanting azure waters and perfect acoustics, is a must see sight during a visit to the island.
Beaches - visitors should note that Capri, given its rugged rocky cliffs, is not an ideal beach desination. There are a couple of small shingle beaches and a few rocky shores, where you pay for sunbeds.
Shopping - the island is a well known shopping destination for the priviledged ultra rich and celebrities. You will spot many people wearing the famous trousers named after the island and the marina is usually full of luxury yatchs, making star spotting common here.
The island of Capri is a dream honeymoon destination for many people. If you are looking for a relaxed holiday then its larger sister island of Ischia might be worth considering
