While nothing beats a traditional passagiatta or wandering around the streets at sunset marvelling at the sites of Capri or Anacapri, a boat trip gives a sense of the dramatic nature of the island and allows visits to parts of the island not accessible by land. Plus you'll feel impossibly glamorous while doing it.

Harriet, Kate L and Victoria are here to help give you the inside track.

As you skirt the dramatic coastline, rocks jutting boldly from the gloriously blue water, you see Capri from a completely different perspective. And what a photogenic perspective it is. Explore shimmering caves and hidden coves, including the Blue Grotto, as well as the Faraglioni rocks and dozens of other bays, inlets and promontories. A boat trip also offers the chance to explore the island away from the crowds. And while you'll doubtless spend most of your boat trip around Capri scraping your jaw off the floor at all the spectacular scenery, it also offers the opportunity for fishing, swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing.

For the ultimate in romance, take an evening trip on a high-powered speed boat across to the Italian Riviera and one of the excellent shorefront seafood restaurants. Or sail through the gigantic natural archway of the Faraglioni rocks near the ancient Roman harbour. The middle of the day tends to be the busiest for boat tripping around Capri so to avoid the crowds, go either early in the morning or later in the afternoon.
