Capri
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We took the funicular up to Capri town (beware, there may be a line - and you have to buy your tickets behind the line before entering).

We then walked down to the other side of the island to relax at Da Luigi ai Fariglioni for swimming in the Mediterranean and enjoying the craggy views. Beware that there is a charge for sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as towels. Also, if you wish to dine at the restaurant, there is a cover charge. Food was great, but many bees.

Finally, the shuttle to Marina Piccolo (NOT the cruise marina) doesn't leave until 3:30. If you have a short day, talk to the lifeguard and he can book you a private water taxi for about 20 EU per person, which can be a beautiful way back to the port.

We hiked the city walls, and then headed to a very "wild" beach - Galebova Stijena beach. Very close to the port city (about 5 EU for 6 miles travel). Arrange the taxi to pick you up on the return at a set time, though - because it's not easy to find one when you're ready to go.

The best part about this beach is that there were absolutely only locals. Clear, beautiful water, but a very pebbly beach so bring water shoes. Also bring snacks and drinks because there ain't much around them parts.

We went on a kayaking adventure around the old city walls, and around Lokrum Island. REALLY tiring, but worth it when Marco showed us some cliffs we could jump from! Great history on the island - it has a curse!

The kayaking was great to give a different perspective - because since we climbed the walls in the late afternoon, we could really get a good feel for where we were.

BTW, do NOT climb the walls before 4. It is way too crowded and hot! Wait until late afternoon, and you will thank me later!
