We do not enjoy sitting on the beach and, as usual, for Sorrento the loungers are packed side by side. We hired a pedalo (motor boats, canoes etc also available) from Maria and Ronato, 10 euros for an hour, cream umbrella at the right hand end of the beach as you face the church. If you go to the rocky headland between the two marinas (grande and piccola) ie turn right after you go out to sea past the swimmers and yellow and white beach huts you will see the cave in the video link below the headland, lovely for a swim. This was part of the roman Villa di Agrippa Postumo , swept in to the sea by the earthquake/eruption of Vesuvio/ tsunami around 62-79 AD depending upon which review you read. Then if you go in the opposite direction there are a couple of smaller, less crowded beaches, one with a bar. A few small boats were tied up to the buoys with their occupants relaxing or sunbathing, so much nicer than the crowded beach. The sea was lovely and warm with a sea breeze, cooler and quieter than the beach - perfect!
