The view from the water of the long series of very step steps made me glad I was on a boat. The "Virgin Mary" like rock formation was inspiring. From the water the statue looked like its namesake.
I'm not sure the view in the cave would be as good
Marina piccola is real natural beaty but you can not find a place swim in the sea. The beach is horrible, it narrow and everybody on each other. The sun beds and umbrellas are too expensive. Everbody sit and lie where they can find places.
