Italy is among the countries that boast a great naturalistic heritage and it is not surprising that it is one of the most popular destinations for travelers. Undoubtedly, Massa Lubrense is one of its natural wonders there is, rich in coastal and hilly landscapes.
Precisely for this reason, we have selected 10 photos taken by the Instagram community that show one of the most beautiful Italian locations.
Congratulations to the photographers, professionals and amateurs, who inspired our selection!
Regardless of the view, the protagonist of Monte San Costanzo is certainly the white church, pictured here from above. Therefore, from the top of the hill you can admire a 360degree view of the Lattari Mountains and the gulfs of Naples and Salerno that embrace the coast.
Firstly from the top of Monte di San Costanzo, we overlook the Bay of Ieranto, an enchanting rocky inlet. Moreover if you take a look from a precise perspective, the bay forms the suggestive shape of a heart.
The Bay of Ieranto is a property protected by the FAI (Italian Environment Fund) and can be reached on foot by a marked path. Starting from Nerano, the journey takes about 40 minutes. Alternatively, the bay can be reached directly from the sea, but only by using a canoe.
This is a photo of Marina del Cantone taken from above. It shows the beauty of the crystalline sea of the Lubrense coast. In the background, you can see the gulf of Salerno, up to Punta Licosa.
In the image above, in the foreground, there is the Montalto Tower. This was completed in 1570 and placed in a strategic position to guard the coast. From the top of it you can admire the Bay of Ieranto and the Bay of Marina del Cantone.
This shot portrays the Recommone Bay. This small pebble beach can be reached on foot along a short path, departing from Marina del Cantone.
In the previous photo, there is a shot of Crapolla. It is a natural inlet, reachable by going down 700 steps.
Marina di Puolo is located at the very beginning of the town of Massa Lubrense, coming from Sorrento. In summer, some of the local restaurants have their tables directly on the beach, giving customers a unique experience.
In this photo we can see the Marciano bridge, it is fascinating because it’s one of the most panoramic points of Massa Lubrense. In particular, walking on it you can admire the island of Capri in the Gulf of Naples.
In conclusion, in this last photo, there is part of the Sirenuse path, which is a trekking path between Sant’Agata sui due Golfi and Colli di Fontanelle. It is called this way because during the walk you can see in the background the islets of Li Galli, also called Sirenuse.
