Beaches at Capri
If you’re in Capri and wondering about watching the sunset, you must take a trip to Anacapri. Anacapri is the one of the best places to observe the sunset with a cocktail in your hand. You and your loved one can gather around to gaze at the blazing spectacle.
Another fascinating place to watch the sunset is the Maliblu beach club. It is situated in the south west side of the island. Maliblu beach club is the most fashionable beach club of the island.

Siren’s Rock is a place devoted to the area where enchanting mythological mermaid-like creatures charmed local fishermen, as told in Roman legend.
The Hidden Mythical Paradise of The Blue Grotto
What is It?
Finally, we come to the concealed paradise knows as Blue Grotto – which is the most fascinating place to be when you are in Capri.
Also known as the Grotto Azzura, the place is a perfect representation of a floating blue sky. The Blue Grotto is a cavern-like structure and is quite self-explanatory from its name. However, the place is not at all explainable.
The doorway to the grotto is somewhat claustrophic and that is where the excitement lies. The passage to the cave is quite low and you have to lie back in the boat. There will be complete darkness for a span of seconds second. Then, without a notice, you will be rewarded with the otherworldly light of the Blue Grotto.
The Blue Light
The blue light of the grotto is created by an underwater cavity at the entrance of the cave. This opening strains out the entering light by creating the blue light which is extremely stunning. The brilliance and glow of the light seems like a blue fire. You would feel like the whole cave is set on blue flames and blue reflections are painting the dark cave’s ceiling.
The objects in the water – like the boat’s oars – create little bubbles. These bubbles cause the light to refract in a distinctive way and silver streaks appear. Here you may actually think about the strangeness nature bears. Imagine how such an astounding beauty is kept so concealed away in a mundane ordinary veneer.
Thus to be in the lap of the cove-studded beaches and the dazzling blue water of the sea – Capri would turn out to be the best place.
Capri is an island of wild loveliness carved by wind, sea and the hand of man.
Boat and Breakfast
And if you want to really leave the island at 360°, you can also sleep on a yacht docked at Capri Island.
