The weather is nearly always good in Campania. Since many of the interesting towns enjoy a coastal position, it is often possible to combine a cultural and historical break with sun and sea. Long sandy beaches are not typical for the region, but small sandy coves are found amongst the rocks. Generally though, the more south you go, the wider and sandier they become.
The coastline is an unbridled haven for snorkelling and diving lovers and for those that just like to swim. Cilento reserve at Capri
is a good place for snorkelling in particular. Sailing is also popular along this coast. If sailing is not your thing and you would prefer to have a captain at the helm, then you can take ferries from Naples
to the Islands of Ischia and Procida
