but not much to do here, not much in the facilities and lots of locals, in the middle of no where but at the same time that was nice. Plenty of local people and culture

I thought that Posilippo district should have a lot of beaches. Unfortunately most of them is private property and we don't have access to get there. Bagno Elena was the best public beach. 10 Euro for whole day of sunbathing and resting is OK for...More

We came for a few hours one afternoon, paid 10€ per person and chose where we wanted to sit and a man came and set up our beds for us. It was fairly quiet (it was a Sunday afternoon) which suited us great. It’s a...More

Average sandy beach, 12euro per person which includes a sunbed. Kids go free. Very busy little beach, facilities available. Easy access from Napoli city center - Line 2 Metro, stop Mergellina and walk for about 20mins. Kids loved it

We decided to visit this place since we wanted to go for a swim somewhere rather close to Napoli. The sunbeds cost 12€ per person which is ridiculously overpriced especially if you take into consideration the extremely unfriendly service (which however can be found nearly...More

After getting tired of travelling far in order to relax on a nice beach, we decided to look for something closer to the centre of Napoli. Bagno Elena is perfect, only four subway stops from the main Garibaldi Station and a pleasant walk from the...More

Considering the other 'beach' we went to yesterday in Mergellina where there was broken glass in the water and rubbish everywhere, this is pure luxury in comparison! OK you pay 12 euros for a couple of loungers, but its quiet, volcanic sandy Beach and normal...More
