“Great place to spend a day in the sun”

This is a great place to have lunch and spend a day in the sun after you take the walk from Capri town to Arco Naturale. They have all the amenities you need, including changing rooms, shower and sun beds. Only thing missing is the drink service directly to your sunbed. You can either continue your walk to Capri or take a boat to the Marina Piccola.

There are two restaurants at Faraglioni. One is da Luigi and the other is Fontelina. They both are nice. But I prefer da Luigi.
Da Luigi is smaller, with less seating capacity. The food and service is good. The view is amazing. I ate calamari and pasta with lobster, both of them were delicious.
The only problem is there were many bees around the table. So if you are with kids you wouldn't feel very comfortable.
The bathing establishment is good, but you have to make reservation before you go. If they don't know you they are trying to give not the best places, they are trying to keep them for their best clients.
We arrived at 11:30, the sea was very choppy, but in the afternoon it became calmer. The entrance price is quite expensive, they charge 22 € per person(enterance, deckchair, one towel), if you want additional towel or umbrella, they charge extra.
Going back to Capri, you can either climb back, which is quite difficult and tiring, or go with a boat to marina piccola.

Dear Madame,

thank you for your preference and for the information that you've shared with the community of tripadvisor. In high season the entrance at the beach club with deck chair costs € 18 per person, € 23 preferring the bed, and includes the locker room, hot and cold showers, and a towel. Unfortunately or fortunately, we must manage the many reservations that come to us via mail and telephone, to which we give priority, which is only a temporal precedence. In high season, we suggest you to book or come very early in the morning in order to award the best seats. For us, all customers are our best customers.

I hope to see you again in this 2013 to make you enjoy the improvements, we have also solved the problem of the bees!

I have been going to luigi for the past 15 years, the position is excellent especially if you come by boat you can leave the boat at the buy.
I recently took friends there because i really wanted them to taste the ravioli caprese that are excellent.
We order four portion of this really good primo, we received a dish with 5 ravioli each, it was more like a taste than a main course.
I complaint with waiter and owner underlining that i have been a customer for years and this never happened to me, nothing the reply was a gentle rephrasing of "this is the standard now, if you dont like dont come back".
We paid 30 euros each for water and a first dish (nothing else) and left.

We wanted to spend a sunny afternoon at this bathing location. Entrance is 17 EUR a person. For that you get a deckchair and a towel. In mid May we were obviously before the season. The Male changing room was blocked by the lifeguard boat. Construction work was carried out. The ladders into the water were not installed yet. We were the only guests. As it was very windy we asked for the chairs to be moved to a less windy spot. This was refused by the attentant (who was busy with the construction work). We left after 30 mins. No apologies offered by the staff, no refund of course.

AMAZING scenery. The beach is located at the base of the Faraglioni. FANTASTIC restaurant (which serves on Saturday nights now in the summer). Worth the hike down 400 or so stairs to reach the bottom. The beach has no sand, but neither do most of the ones on Capri. Order a mat to lay on and relax! The water is deep and green, perfect for taking long swims to the cave around the cliffs to the left. Also good for jumping off of the rocks and cliffs, which the owners do not support, but you ca get away with. The restaurant is also divine. They know just how to cook their pasta so it is al dente! The classic penne scui scui is always a hit. If you do not want to climb the stairs back up, you can take a boat to marina piccola and take a cab, bus, or walk up to the piazzetta. The only rival beach would be the free beach at marina piccola, though it gets crowded on the weekends.
