“Small but nice”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Can get windy, though, and the sea is never fully calm here. Not for families. Maybe a bit expensive, but you can always ask for a deal.

“Beautiful Tucked Away Beach (when the Sea is Calm)”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

My wife and I recently stayed in Sant'Angelo and were thrilled to take the steps down to the heralded Cava Grado beach to relax in the sun and dip in the ocean. Just a few minutes walk from Sant'Angelo, the view at the base of Cava Grado is stunning, and there is a small restaurant serving drinks and snacks. Beach chairs and umbrellas are available for rental (and the best part of this tiny beach is reserved for patrons who are paying), and there is a free space to the left of a rope fence for other patrons. If the sea is calm, Cava Grado makes for a wonderful nook to while away hours reading, swimming, or tanning, but if there is much of a breeze (and Ischia IS an island so for most of each day there IS a breeze), then the ocean waves come so high that there is only room for 10-15 people total on the entire beach (and over half of those people will be individuals who pay for a chair/umbrella). In conclusion, if you want to enjoy the view from Cava Grado, make sure the sea is calm; otherwise, there won't be enough beach space to enjoy anything.
