Cala di Mitigliano
Cala di Mitigliano is the right place to go if you want to enjoy a relaxing moment on the beach in a breathtaking landscape.
You can reach Cala di Mitigliano on foot or by car from the village of Termini. From the little square, piazza Santa Croce, take Via Campanella; after about 200 meters there is a fork in the road: the road to the right leads to Monte San Costanzo, the left one to Punta Campanella and, before, to Cala di Mitigliano. After few meters, take the steep footpath that branches off to the left; walking on this path you will admire the Church of Santa Maria di Mitigliano, built on the rests of an old abbey. After about 30 minutes you will reach the beach of Cala di Mitigliano.
If you prefer to go by car, follow the street Via Campanella and turn to the right at the second branch: this is a private street ending in a small parking, between olive trees and Mediterranean maquis. From this point, there is only a short walk until the beach.
Cala di Mitigliano is a cave enclosed by high perpendicular rocks. The most impressive thing of this place is the clear water and the fantastic landscape, with a viewpoint on Capri and Punta Campanella. The beach of Mitigliano is a pebble beach, here you can find different sized stones and rocks. On the right side of the beach, there is an ancient circular building, similar to a tower. In the past this building was used for the production of lime, it now seems to be there to remind the time when the cave was active.
Along the coast you will see a circular grotto with a diameter of 5/6 meters, on a seabed of about 15 meters. The grotto is a paradise for snorkeling lovers, but is possible to enter it only if the sea is quite and the tide is low.
