La dolce vita
It’s places like this that bring to life that famous Italian saying, la dolce vita – or ‘the sweet life’. That’s because things here centre around lazy days eating piled-high cones of gelato and big bowls of spaghetti alla Nerano between sunbathing. The pebble shoreline is south facing too, which means the turquoise-tinted waters are wonderfully warm.
If you can bear to leave your bathing spot behind, there are some scenic inlets close by that are well worth the trip. Swing by cliff-wrapped Recommone Bay to find a sweet, sheltered spot with a couple of shady grottos to retreat to when it gets too hot. Feeling glitzy? Get on a boat to Capri and pretend to be an A-lister for the day.
