marina chiaiolella

"Chiaiolella" (little beach) is the third historical marine area of Procida and it is characterized by the longest beach of the island and the little port.

There is also a square, where especially during summer, are organized traditional initiatives for the promotion of the territory.

Among the characteristic row houses, rises the Sanctuary of St. Giuseppe (XIX century).

At the end of the long beach, and after the beach area called Ciracciello, you can find a marshland, irrigated with the employment of special noria, that extracted the water from Artesian wells.

Going on visit, in front of the square, if you look on the left, you can see Simone Schiano Street, a famous and narrow slope, from which there is a beautiful view of the port of Chiaiolella and of the row houses.

This street leads to Villa Chiaiozza, a neoclassic villa, owned by the English consul M. Wentworty Gurney, who built it during the post-war period.

The path continues until another lookout, from which you can see the Chiaia beach, the Corricella harbour and Terra Murata.
