The Best Beach Clubs in Capri
La Fontelina Capri
Without a doubt, the most exclusive beach club in Capri is La Fontelina. Which is rather unusual as it’s a beach club that is essentially perched on a series of rocks.
However, it is the dream-like setting that is the most arresting part of La Fontelina Capri. Surrounded on all sides by tropical azure water, you also happen to have one of the best seats on the island for superyacht watching. The waters in front of La Fontelina are during the summer months a hive of activity and one of the prime reasons to visit Capri. It’s hard not to be impressed by the sheer scale of the superyachts and megayachts that lurk just offshore.
The famous sea stack – Faraglioni is located just beside the beach club La Fontelina Capri, which also happens to be a popular day-trip destination for most visitors who visit the island of Capri. From the comfort of your deck chair or sun lounger, you can spend the entire day watching the many boats in the waters zipping around and trying to count the number of superyachts and millionaires in one small area.
La Fontelina Capri was originally set up in 1949 and throughout its history was destroyed by sea storms and the elements that surround the small island of Capri. It has been rebuilt over the years and now enjoys being one of the most prestigious beach clubs in Capri thanks to its simplicity, history, and location.

Fish lovers will love rejoice in the superb selection of freshly caught fish.
