The presence of shallow waters and numerous establishments along the waterfront make Marina Chiaiolella one of the most well-known and popular destinations in Procida. Here, in addition to the picturesque marina, you can find some of the most frequented hotels and restaurants on the island. Despite the lively summer tourism that has led to some necessary changes, Chiaiolella has always maintained its character as a fishing village. Walking along the pier and continuing along Via Giovanni da Procida, it is possible to admire the characteristic houses with spontaneous architecture.
The houses are centuries-old, while the hotels blend perfectly into the landscape despite being more recent. The highlight of the entire village is the Sanctuary of San Giuseppe, built in 1836 and restored over the years. In addition to the bell tower with its large clock that overlooks all sides of the campanile, the beautiful paintings preserved inside the church also deserve special attention. The characteristic harbor, formed by an ancient extinct volcanic crater, is surrounded to the west by the Solchiaro hill, once a favorite hunting spot for the Bourbons, and to the east by the promontory of Santa Margherita, which housed a Benedictine monastery in the 8th century. The fantastic sunset over Ischia and the island of Vivara, visible from all the beaches of the village, is also not to be missed.
Marina Chiaiolelle is easily reachable by bus, with the L1 or L2 lines that leave from the terminus in Marina Grande and cross the main road.
Chiaiolella is characterized by the uncontaminated nature of the sea, by the landscape glimpses of Ischia and the island of Vivara, and by the characteristic houses of spontaneous architecture.
Grazie alla presenza di bar, ristoranti e solarium nelle vicinanze, la Chiaiolella è molto frequentata dal tramonto in poi sia dai residenti che da turisti.
