Sorrento is closely associated with lemon-growing, a fact which won’t escape you as you wander past shops stocked with every conceivable citrus-themed souvenir. While there’s a wealth to explore in and around the picture-perfect coastal city, Sorrento makes for a terrific base to navigate the dramatic Amalfi coast, which stretches south for mile after exquisite mile. Without question, it’s best viewed from the sea. Sailing south, there’s a slew of places to drop anchor and enjoy some of Italy’s most splendid scenery. Here we reveal some of the best day trips to do by boat from Sorrento.
Sail the coast of Sorrento in style by chartering a boat with SamBoat.
Crystal clear turquoise water laps the boulder-strewn beach at Cala di Mitigliano and floods the cave nestled within the rocks. You can only reach this wild and unspoilt cove on foot or by boat, but such seclusion only makes it more attractive. The outlook across to Capri is a delight. If you’re in the mood for a hike, follow the path up to the Church of Santa Maria di Mitigliano where you’ll be rewarded by highly Instagrammable views.
