The Marina del Cantone, in the Massa Lubrense municipality, is one of the most famous marinas in the Sorrento peninsula. Known for its landscapes, the crystal-clear water and the famous restaurants, it’s the place where the famous Nerano spaghetti recipe was invented and represents a stop sought after by tourists and travelers who choose to visit the Sorrento peninsula and the Amalfi coast.
It’s possible to get here with your own car or with the buses that depart often from Sorrento and take visitors all along the way up to the beach. To get to the beach, the road goes through Sant’ Agata, through Termini (where it’s possible to take the pathway for Punta Campanella) and Nerano, a fishing village known, among other things, to be the access for the Ieranto bay.
