One of my most favorite ways to spend a day in Capri is at the fabulous La Fontelina beach club and restaurant.

Set right on the ocean, just a stone’s throw from the foot of the dramatic Faraglioni rocks, the Fontelina is considered one of the most beautiful beach clubs in Italy, and the ravishingly rustic Fontelina restaurant with its straw covered pergola and local Italian cuisine is the epitome of effortless chic.

The Faraglioni rocks.

The Faraglioni rocks.

It’s quite a hike down the hill to get there, but the reward for reaching this exclusive spot is worth every bit of effort. That being said, if one is feeling less adventurous, there is a shuttle boat that leaves every 30 minutes to and from Marina Picola which can be reached by taxi from the Piazzetta.

Enjoying a delightful bottle of Italian Rose at the Fontelina restaurant, I’m sporting a Michael Bastian for Gant rugby style shirt in navy and white cotton, Orlebar Brown “Setter” swim shorts in white, Louboutin black leather sandal/espadrilles, vintage Rolex watch, a smashing straw hat with black grosgrain ribbon trim from India Hicks’ The Sugar Mill, and white Tom Ford “Miguel” sunglasses.

    Oh you do look so fabulously and effortlessly handsome…and such a bad influence! I read your missive, then of course, went on to India Hick’s website, and I’m sure you know where this is going…

    It seems everyone went wild for your smile, n’est-ce pas? Perhaps because you don’t always smile, (sometimes you just smolder!) it makes it all the more special when you do?

    So clever you are! And the only man I’ve seen in a long time who really can wear and be photographed in your swim shorts! How do you do it? Look modern yet classic all at the same time?!

    …and please, pass the Rose!
