Ideal place for walking and enjoying the Vesuvio view when in Castellamare! There are some cafes and places to rest and drink.

Popped down to the coast to walk the promenade, wish I didn’t bother tbh. There is no beach, just grasses up areas of rubbish. People walk their dogs along and obviously don’t pick up after themselves. Lots of tweens hanging around this area during the...More

Castellammare was once a resort town. Bad management meant that the thermal baths went bankrupt. (They had one of the biggest spas in Italy). At the moment there is talk of it being sold and reopened. The promenade has recently been done up and is...More

Recently finished, this walk along the seafront is very nice. The path weaves along beside grass and planted islands and there are water fountains every so often. Popular with joggers and cyclists as well as locals going for a stroll. Nice views across the bay...More

This recently renovated stretch of seafront is perfect for wandering up and down to find where you might want to eat or drink but also to soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the views across the bay to Vesuvius and Naples. It's relatively busy in...More

The refurbished promenade is enjoyed by people of all ages. Fantastic views across the gulf to Napoli and Vesuvio, grey sunsets and loads of bars, restaurants and ice cream, some for as little as 75cents a cone. There are often events as well. While we...More

I think there is probably still some pollution there but it is improving. I swam on several days with my cousin who is from Castellammare and we had no problems but were careful not to swallow any water! It is one of the... More
