Create an itinerary including Natural Arch
Towering 18 m (59 ft) above the ground stands Natural Arch. As the name suggests, a collapsed limestone grotto along the coastline of Capri has formed this shape, which provides a natural window into the deep turquoise lagoon below. The arch, spanning 12 m (39 ft) wide, is believed to have been from the Paleolithic age. You can take a short hike from the nearby town that winds through narrow streets and past villas and colorful gardens to the arch. Wear proper walking shoes, and be prepared to climb many steps. Make Natural Arch a part of your Capri vacation plans using our Capri visit planning website.

  • A bit of a walk to get to the views but not difficult at all. There is a small bar / restaurant near the Arch to get a quick snack or libation. Definitely one of the things to do on Capri.

  • Nice view on the sea! The path from Capri center to here is a 30min walk, a small hike in easy mode. What is a bit less optimal is that this is a stand-alone spot, if you want to go to somewhere else (for instance, the beach), you have to go all the way back. Hope that a new path can be built in the future that connects the intetesting spots around the island. That is why I take one star away. This place is otherwise really relaxing. Recommended!
  • Such a quiet and magnificent place. We met like 5 people during our trip to the Arco Naturale. Wonderful view of the sea, surrounded by nature and the incessant sound of cicadas. Ideal for a romantic time with your loved one. P.S. There is a grotto down under the arch, but we were short of time, so we didn't visit.
