Imagine a summer evening in Capri...
The terrace at Torre Saracena is the perfect location for events both big and small. In the evening, the terrace can be booked exclusively for private events. It's a magical place that reveals all of its charm as the silver moonlight shimmers on the sea, illuminating the Faraglioni.More...
Torre Saracena is located in the bay of Marina Piccola, and can be reached on foot, by bus, or with a taxi.
From the center of Capri, head to the Via Mulo stairway (starting at Due Golfi) and walk down until you cross the road. Continue down for about 300 meters and immediately after the bend you'll see the stairway that leads to the beach club entrance.
From the Piazzetta in Capri take the bus in the direction of Marina Piccola and then follow the signs along the road.
A traditional Capri-style taxi can drop you off directly at the top of the staircase that leads to the beach club entrance.
The secret beach of Capri, since 1906
Torre Saracena is one of the oldest bathing establishments on Capri, founded in 1906 as a quaint trattoria with a down-home, authentic atmosphere. At that time the port of Marina Grande was mainly a beach, and a single daily steamer connected the island with the mainland in Naples. The now-famous Piazzetta of Capri was still far from being known as a place to see and be seen, and it was the site of a local market.
Swimming in the sea and spending the whole day on the beach wasn't a custom at that time. People came to Torre Saracena to have lunch and perhaps take a rowboat tour out to the nearby Faraglioni sea stacks.
The Torre Saracena beachfront was originally managed by Giovanni di Pennaulo and his wife Raffaela. It is currently managed by Giovanni's nephew Domenico, along with Domenico's children Gemma and Giovanni, keeping their family's historic tradition alive with a style of unpretentious, homespun hospitality.
