La Fontelina, Capri

Beach Bar


Paradise on earth

“If there’s a sea in Paradise, it will be exactly like the sea caressing Fontelina’s beach…”

How would you spend the perfect day on the island of Capri? Swimming beneath the Faraglioni, soaking up the summer sun on a comfy beach lounger, eating freshly caught pezzogna in the shade of a pretty pergola, drinking a glass of sangria whilst the sun begins to set..

There’s a place in Capri where you can do all this: the Fontelina beach club.

“Spend a day with us and we guarantee you’ll want to come back – soon!”

Everybody who comes to Capri’s Fontelina agrees that ours is one of the most beautiful beach clubs in Italy. It’s also one of the most exclusive: the kind of place where you might easily find yourself sitting in the sun next to a high profile politician or Hollywood film star.

For us, it is a place so incredibly beautiful that nothing we do can make it more so. For us it is a place to value and to love, just as our parents and grandparents did before us.

Here, where the waves lap gently against the Faraglioni rocks before breaking on the island’s sunny shores, you’ll experience the true heart and soul of Capri, and the legend which accompanies it.

A corner of the island lit by the turquoise reflections off the water.
A simple retreat, where hospitality is part of our history.
A magical place where each and every client is offered the warmest of welcomes, the finest food and memories to treasure – forever.



Fontelina restaurant

“That special ingredient which makes a day by the sea truly perfect”

Fontelina first opened in 1949 as small seaside restaurant: a simple place, where the catch of the day was cooked to perfection on the grill, the fire was always burning and where there was always a great pan of fish soup bubbling on the stove.

Today there might be a few more tables, a professional kitchen, and a straw-roofed pergola to shade customers as they eat, but the simple nature of the restaurant has remained the same.

Each day, chef Mario prepares a number of tempting off-menu treats, and fresh pasta served with flavoursome fish sauces and vegetables.

Classic, seafood favourites such as spaghetti with clams, fried paranza, and seafood salad are never missing from the menu. Providing the perfect accompaniment to your meal, there is an excellent selection of wines and, of course, Fontelina’s legendary iced sangria …
