20 Most Beautiful Islands in the World

Capri, Italy

Capri, Italy

Located less than an hour boat from Naples, Capri is an inevitable step, an idyllic island, where sharp cliffs rise majestically above a crystalline blue sea. Enjoy the stunning natural landscape, shop at Capri’s trendiest clothing boutique, eat some local delicacies or go clubbing all night.

The most famous sight on Capri island is incontestably “The Blue Grotto”, a magical cavern where the sea glows electric blue. This extraordinary optical effect is created by the sunlight bouncing on the cave walls which gives the water this electric blue shade. History enthusiasts will enjoy the “Villa Jovis”, ruins of the Imperial Roman villas, where the emperor Tiberius lived.

Capri can be pretty crowded in summer – our tip – rent a boat, and enjoy the sea away from the flock of tourists. Take advantage of the trip to view The Faraglioni, a massive rock formation made up of three separate limestone stacks. In the evening, stop at the trendy ‘Piazzeta’ for a drink or drive to Naples for one of the best pizza in Italy. Of course, try at least once a Caprese salad, the typical dish here, made with vine-ripened tomatoes, milky mozzarella, aromatic basil leaves and delicious local olive oil. You’ll find it on every menu. Night owls will also enjoy Capri for its nightlife; clubs don’t open before midnight, and stay open until sunrise! Whatever you like doing on holiday, Capri has it all.
