San Francesco beach

The beach of San Francesco, also known as the beach of the small Marina, is one of the most appreciated beaches of Sorrento and of the entire Sorrento Peninsula . Awarded for years with the Blue Flag by the Foundation for environmental education, the beach of San Francesco is one of the most popular in the Campania region and is composed almost entirely of platforms that surmount the rocks and allow access to the water through of ladders. These artificial constructions belong to the bathing establishments that offer common services such as bathrooms or showers as well as the rental of relaxation equipment. Always at the bathing establishments of Sorrento it is possible to rent small boats to make boat trips and admire the wonderful Sorrento Coast from the sea. The water that bathes the beach of San Francesco is clear and crystalline. You can even observe the bottom of the sea without the aid of goggles or mask because of the water cleaning. The sandy stretch of the beach is small and has a medium grain size and tends to dark, a particular color due to the crumbling of the tuff ridge overlooking the beach. To reach the beach of San Francesco, you need to arrive at the town of Sorrento. By car, you can easily reach Sorrento by taking the A3 motorway and then the national road 145. With the means instead, you can get to Sorrento by taking the EAV vehicles from Naples, in particular by taking the Bus 1 of this Line.

    La marina piccola è una delle spiagge più belle della penisola sorrentina. Mare pulito e lidi attrezzatissimi.
