“Absolutely beautiful”

Fortini Coastal Walk

Well marked trail with interesting signs on the local fauna, flora, and history along the way. It's not hugely strenuous, but is up and down, and I suspect would be more challenging in Summer. You do need to take your own supplies.

You truly can see forever!
Wear comfortable shoes, it’s quite a treck but worth every step.
We started at the lighthouse and walked toward the Grotto Azzurra, easy to pace yourself and you need to do that so you can drink in the views. You will never forget them!!!!

We completed this walk in about 2.5 hrs starting at the lighthouse and going to the Blue Grotto.
We loved the variety of the scenery and the spectacular views. It is a great way to get a feel for the west side of the island.
We downloaded the free Avenza map of Capri prior to starting (we do this for all our hiking around the world) as it shows us offline where we are on the map of the area. A couple of times we weren't sure if we were on the right track but with this map it was quickly confirmed or rectified.
We ended with a rowboat ride into the Blue Grotto which we accessed from the road side.

Quite long walk. Beautiful views and interesting with the old castellos. Bring your best shoes and a lot of sun screen. We were drenched in sweat when we arrived at Faro so bring swimwear so you can have a dip.

We took note of previous reviews and started our walk from the Faro Lighthouse end, walking toward Grotto Azzurra. We started the walk a little late around 10am. The sun was shining and warm. We took plenty of water.

As with previous reviewers I agree that the path is a little rocky and narrow in some parts. It has lots of ups and downs with staircases and very little rails. Despite this at no time did I feel unsafe. My husband and I are in our mid 50's with reasonable fitness and we walked this track very comfortably.

The plaques along the path are informative and we used our map and these plaques to guide us and we found our way easily.

We did the walk in an hour and 20 minutes, but I fess up that this was because on commencing our walk we checked with the bus driver to confirm the start of the path. Due to our poor Italian I think our bus driver was concerned so told us to jump in the bus & he would take us. This resulted in him dropping us up the hill.

In hindsight we feel we missed a bit of the path and realised that where we thought the start of the path was near the bus stop in Faro was correct.

Despite the rocky & narrow path it wasn't slippery due to the warm summer weather. Some parts of the walk are shaded. We passed about 3 other walkers, young, mature and one with a child of about 4.

Stop to read the beautiful ceramic tile information.

An enjoyable walk I would gladly do again.

The buses to and from Faro and Grotto Azzurra are easy to catch from the main towns on the island.

As other reviewers have said there are spots to take a swim along the way, however they are not easily accessible and we waited and went to the public beach at Grotto Azzurra, which was fabulous.
