Bagni Tiberio beach

Is the most cozy beach in Capri

Small Bagni Tiberio located on the north coastline of the island. Among the rocky bays of the island - an almost perfect place for the beach.

There is everything necessary for the rest: wooden terraces for sunbathing, a restaurant to satisfy hunger and pure turquoise water for bodily and emotional rest.

Beach description

Bagni Tiberio belongs to the category of beach clubs. Entry to the club is paid. As in all similar clubs in Capri, the average price, which includes rental of loungers and swimming, is for about 20 euros. But there is also a very small free area. On Capri there is almost no sandy beaches, Bagni Tiberio is no exception. There are small shingle and rocks. The length of the beach strip is about 50 meters, it is even called miniature. Wooden steps from the restaurant, which is called after the beach, lead directly to the sea. The entry into the sea is smooth and shallow, so the beach is comfortable for families with children. Although it is not recommended to enter the sea without special shoes, it is possible to run against large shingle and rocks, that start already from half a meter.

The water is calm here. The inconvenience is created by boats, which scurry back and forth, bringing tourists. A transit route to the Azure Grotto is also here. The bathing area is enclosed by buoys, over which it is dangerous to swim because of the same boats. Sunbeds and parasols are located directly on the wooden terrace and along the beach strip. There is catastrophically little place, especially in the high season, which is opened from May until September.

The beach of Bagni Tiberio is reached by boats from the seaport of Marina Grande or by bus. It takes 5 minutes to swim by sea, the bus stops 10 minutes walk from the beach. Thanks to calm water and a smooth entry, the beach was loved by family vacationers, but there are plenty of guests of coastal hotels here. After all, the places here are picturesque, the water is incredibly pure, and the sights around are interesting.

When is it better to go

In terms of climate, the period from May to October is the most favorable for visiting Italy. The air and water temperature becomes ideal for a classic beach holiday, followed by a trip to the coast of Italy. However, it is necessary to remember that a long summer with the scorching sun, warm sea and pleasant sea breeze attracts crowds of tourists.

It is no coincidence, that the Roman emperor Tiberius himself chose this place. He arranged for himself 12 villas in Capri. All of them were discovered during archaeological excavations. The tyrant was terribly afraid of the treacherous attack, so no one knew, which of the villas he would spend the night in. Roman baths or thermae (hence the name of the beach) were inherited from the predecessor of the emperor Octavian Augustus. That did not welcome luxury, but used to say about Capri, that this place was for lazy bliss. So, he built here baths, which Tiberius improved and expanded later.
