Tried to walk here from Sant Agata as its quite a short distance though we knew it would be steep , following a mostly marked trail downwards we had even checked the coves website before hand. Unfortunately never got to the actual beach only a view from the south headland to the sea & cove (great view). Recent brush fire... More

Beautiful little beach tucked away between cliffs. You need to walk for about an hour downhill from the village of Torca to the beach. Alternatively there is a little road but the last 500 steps you have to walk. It is quite steep but totally worth the hike down and up. Many locals also come by boat.

Don't let the name fool you--this place is heaven indeed. We had an amazing time hiking down on a warm afternoon--to our own private, secret lagoon! No one there but us. We swam au naturel, then just sat on the beach and took it all in. Go later in the afternoon so you can really "earn" the cool swim--then hike... More

We went when it was 34 degrees there, and probably should have enjoyed it more than we did. The 700 steps are very challenging but the views are incredible. There isn't a lot to do when you get down there but swim in the sea. But overall a brilliant experience.

The 700 steps are just the publicised bit. This is the third time I have made the walk from village all the way down and back again. An arduous walk to the steps all downhill and then the steps, but rewarded with a solitary cove where the locals have abt ten cobbles for fishing. Take plenty water and don't rush!

Currently sat outside the lounge bar in sant agata enjoying the best beer ever after hiking up and down to crapolla cove. I'd read the reviews and wasn't too perturbed so I insisted we try it if only for the views. Well the views are magnificent but the hike isn't. We took the usual route via Torca through the jungle...

Having read the reviews we thought we'd give Crapolla Cove a go!!. Bus from Sorrento to Sant Agata - no problem, we then followed the main road down to Torca. (1 km according the signpost), but actually quite easy. There is a brown sign for Marina di Crapolla in Torca which leads down a narrow road turning to a path... More

We hiked to the cove from Sant'Agata Dui Golfi, a small town about 45 minutes from Sorrento. It's an arduous but amazing walk, with an idyllic cove to swim in as a reward. To get started on the hike, go to the tourist information shop which is in the main square of the town. They have maps and details, and... More
