Beaches, good food in the furthest end of the sorrentine peninsula.

On the extreme border of the territory of the peninsula sorrentina, Massa Lubrense is situated  between the gulfs of Naples and Salerno. With its  20 km˛  surface and a coastline that runs for 25 km. with splendid bays and pebbly beaches, it represents the most important bathing centre of the coast.



Punta della Campanella.
This is the part of the peninsula that is closest to Capri and divides the two gulfs. One can admire the Torre di Punta Campanella and Torre di Minerva built by the Angioine in the 14th century and reconstructed over the course of the centuries due to destruction caused by Saracen invaders. The actual tower covers the remains of the ancient foundation of a villa made by the Roman Emperor Augustus for his family. Still before all of this, probably, the Greeks had erected in the same spot a temple dedicated to the cult of Minerva.

The Beaches. Besides the fishing villages of Marina di Puolo and Marina della Lobra and the beach at Marina del Cantone, a special view lies at the Baia di Ieranto which makes up a part of the well protected F.A.I. (Fondo Ambientale Italiano, an Italian environmental protection agency), for those interested in historic, recovered landscapes.

L’Isca, Vetara e Crapolla. Just like the islets called Li Galli represent a fundamental characteristic of the territory of Positano, so do Isca and Vetara represent the particular elements of Massa Lubrense. The first, besides having the remains of a Roman villa, it was the residence of the great playwright Eduardo De Filippo. The second is home only to a substantial colony of sea gulls. In the inlet of Crapolla, instead, are the remains of an ancient abbey dedicated to San Pietro.
