Via dei Bagni, 3, 80079 Procida NA
The Spiaggia della Chiaia is the most central of Procida's beaches, but at the same time also the most 'isolated'. This little paradise, mostly a public beach, can only be reached in two ways: on foot or by sea. On foot it can be reached via a descent of 186 steps located in an alleyway that starts in Piazza Olmo, or by taking Via dei Bagni from Piazza San Giacomo, taking a descent that also has final steps.
Your gaze is lost among the many wonders that surround what is one of Procida's most beautiful beaches: on the right-hand side is the rocky ridge on which stand a few houses with typical island architecture, on the other is the small port of Corricella, a small nativity scene made up of colourful houses set between the rock and the hill on which Terra Murata stands, Procida's oldest nucleus. Opposite, the absolute protagonist is the azure blue sea.
The Spiaggia della Chiaia is a single large strip of black sand at the end of which are two small establishments, one of which not only has a bar but also an excellent restaurant overlooking this magnificent panorama.
