Have a hike

Excursion to the wonderful Ieranto Bay, half day trip


We suggest comfortable shoes, hat, sunscreen, water, and some snacks as it is an unspoiled area.

From Sorrento or Massa Lubrense drive towards Marina del Cantone , you’ll stop at Nerano Village square, after a few meters turn right on the signalized trail “Via Jeranto” as far as Villa Rosa where the famous English writer Norman Douglas wrote “The Sirens Land”, here you can enjoy the view of Marina del Cantone and the Amalfi coast on your left. The trail starts to descend advancing in the Mediterranean shrubs.

Leaving on the right some wild fig trees, the trail starts to be steeper, you can see from the top the area of the “Mortella” and the beach so called “Spiaggia dei Tedeschi”.

On your left in the territory of “Montalto”, you will have a truly spectacular view of Punta Penna and Punta Campanella and in the center the superb island of Capri with the Faraglioni rocks.

Here if you are lucky you may have the chance to meet the peregrine falcon that after many years has now returned in this place.

Continuing your trip you can visit the “Montalto” watch tower, an admirable example of a coastal defense system dating back to the fifteen century, or… (suggestible for good walkers) walk downhill to the “Capitiello” beach, and swim in its green and blue Clear water.

Have a rest enjoying the fresh air on the terraces of olive trees, heed land of FAI (Fondo Ambiente Italiano).

In the past years Ieranto was a quarry for the extraction of Limestone, you can see part of the mountain missing and the Industrial settlement that now is part of Archaeological Industry.
