The Bay of Jeranto is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful spots on the Sorrento peninsula. Located in the municipality of Massa Lubrense, it is part of the Marine protected area of Punta Campanella. The bay was once home to a limestone quarry between the late 1800s and 1952: visitors can still admire the old industrial monuments and equipment used to extract lime ready to be transported to the steel factories of Naples.
Starting from the square in Nerano (a village in Massa Lubrense), you follow an easily manageable path situated on the left of the stunning Marina del Cantone beach, with the route overlooking the gorgeous Amalfi coast as far as Praiano. Shortly after this, you will find yourself at the entrance of a pink house that was once home to the English writer Norman Douglas. It was here that he found the inspiration to write his famous book Siren Land.
The path continues downhill through stretches of Mediterranean bush, sheltered on the right by the high slopes of Monte San Costanzo, until it reaches a crossroads from where it is possible to change course towards the ancient Montalto watchtower or continue on down the steps to the beach in Capitiello. Here, you can reward yourself with a dip in the cobalt-blue sea off the bay’s tiny beach as you enjoy the splendid views of Capri and the Faraglioni.
