Opposite of the yachts in 2004 opened the Monument to fallen sailors (map). Inscribed on the Board - a memoria di quanti in operando mare in pace ed in guerra non tornarono - "to the Memory of those who never returned from sea in war and peacetime".

Most of the shore is covered with huge boulders of white tuff, but even here there are a couple of beaches - Funder (Spiaggia della Fundera) and the beach Angela ( (Spiaggia di Suor Angela). Of course, in the beginning of April, all beach infrastructure hid prior to the season, which opens in may.

in the Distance you can see the island of Procida in scarlet. It is now up to about 10 kilometers, but at sunset, it seems that the distance is much less. This optical effect I noticed 3 years ago in Capri.

Since time was of evening and was noticeably cooler here, I decided to call it a day with the study of the Northern part of the island, and sat down to wait for the bus under a monument on the Sea area. At the bus stop was a stand with the schedule, and even the electronic scoreboard (naturally, broken), but the bus, marked in the timetable all not appeared. It was getting colder, and when ignored the schedule as well, and the next, I began to think about a taxi (most are waiting and so did a taxi rank around the corner) but then on the coastal road we saw the bus.
