Fortini di Mesola

Via Mesola
Sand or Rock ?: Rock
Facilities: This secret swimming spot,located close to Faro di Punta Carena, is popular with divers and locals.. Access is challenging. Please note that this spot does not really offer sunbathing and the sea can be rough. A little rock pool offers safer bathing.

How do I get there?
Ask the bus driver to let you out at Mesola and walk across the countryside to the spot. Otherwise take the bus to Faro and follow the 'Fort' trail. This has been upgraded with ceramic signage. Note however that signage in Capri can be tricky, just following the path will take you to the spot.
