Among the many nature trails that surround Sorrento, one of the most stunning is undoubtedly the one that leads to the Bay of Jeranto.
The picturesque bay is part of the Marine Protected Area of Punta Campanella and legend has it that here lived the sirens that tempted Ulysses in the journey described by Homer in the Odyssey. There are those who say they still can hear them singing in the backwash sound.
To reach the picturesque beach at the bottom of the bay can take about forty minutes from the village of Nerano, close to Massa Lubrense.
The trail is only 3.5 miles but the height difference of 250 meters can make it challenging, especially due to the difficulty to look away from an exceptional panorama to pay attention to your steps !
From the central square of the village of Nerano after a few tens of meters, turn in via Jeranto to embark on a path extremely varied : after Villa Rosa, home of writer Norman Douglas, you walk in the olive groves and dry stone walls bordering then to dive into the breathtaking view Faraglioni of Capri that stand right in front , until you get to the beach via a staircase a bit ' rough in the last section.
It is even possible to reach the bay by sea and in this way you can also visit some isolated coves not accessible from the mainland.
