Da’ ‘a preta ‘e Puolo fin’ ‘o Monte ‘e Torca
saglie p’ ‘e rive e scenne nu cunfino;
‘a là ‘o sole se sceta, ‘a ccà se corca
e addora ‘e mare a vespro e a mattutino.
Massise e Surrentine, sempe ‘nguerra,
accussì se spartettero sta terra.

‘O paese mio – Francesco Saverio Mollo

Marina di Puolo 3

Its name comes from the Roman Pollio Felice, a distinguished member of a noble family of Pozzuoli and owner of a villa whose ruins are still visible nearby, in the locality Calcarella.

The small village consists mainly of fishermen’s houses. The beach is made ​​of pebbles and sand, there are free areas and several bathing establishments, bars and restaurants, with tables directly on the beach. The beach offers rental pedal boats, charter boats, etc.

The first beach of Marina di Puolo is pebbly and with bathing establishment, going forward there is a free beach with sand, then a wide cemented space used as a “solarium” where you can rent chairs and umbrellas. In the water in front of the solarium fishermen moor their boats. Finally, after a long cliff called “Muraglione” there is another small beach predominantly made ​​of pebbles; here the sea is generally clean and the water cool.

The other Puolo beach, known as “Cala di Puolo” was until the sixties a quarry for gravel extraction. The bay is accessible from the provincial road Sorrento-Massa, through a toll road that runs through what was once the property of the Commander Achille Lauro. Currently, the square of the quarry has become a huge parking lot, serving a bathing beach, with sun terrace and bar-restaurant.
