Sorrento: what to know about the best beaches to see in the boat
Those who stay in Sorrento and look for long stretches of clear sand may be disappointed. In fact, the beaches of Sorrento are very small and often crowded, but from Sorrento you can move a few kilometers to discover charming and little known beaches.
Some of these offer a magnificent show that we recommend not to miss. The best way to enjoy them is at sunset, when the sea turns red and the air is warmer. For lovers of this experience there is the Sunset experience, a half-day boat tour with a choice of departure from Sorrento, Capri, Positano and Amalfi.
