Baths, summer, the scent of salt, laughs, complicity: a photo of a coffee by the sea represents moments lived and unforgettable sensations.
How many times, looking at an old photo, have you remembered the place and people with whom you shared that moment?
Let’s look together the images we have selected and begin to remember, identify with, and wish to be under the sun sipping a cup of coffee.
1. @peppecant Sicily, Italy
A table, a traditional Moka, and the choppy sea as a background: an ideal setting in which to sip a good coffee and enjoy the sunrise. In this picture, there’s also a picnic basket, resting on the sand and some shrubs, typical of the Mediterranean.
2. @dolceileana Cesenatico, Italy
From Sicily to Emilia Romagna, this photo was taken along a pier in Cesenatico. In the foreground we have a cup of cappuccino and a tasty donut with cream, typical and inviting flavours of the Italian breakfast.
The flowers on the table, colour the shot and make breakfast more enjoyable.
3. @bagni77senigallia Senigallia, Italy
Breakfast by the seaside in the Marche is a must, with the umbrellas lined up, symbol of the bathing season that has already begun. Next to the espresso, some inviting croissants and two fresh juices, to colour the day and even the photo.
4. @ondanomala_suiteclub Fregene, Italy
In this picture there’s coffee made with the Chemex method, which is part of the filtered coffee family. There are many percolation systems and getting to know them, especially in out-of-the-ordinary contexts, is very interesting.
And with the sea in the background, everything takes on a different flavour.
5. @elviraph Santorini, Greece
Waking up in Santorini, in a rocky landscape that falls plumb to the sea must be truly magical. In this picture there’s a set table and a cup of coffee ready to be enjoyed.
The background is a mix of the blue of the sky and the sea, interrupted only by the rocky terrain of the island.
6. @rosanna_stanzione Pozzuoli, Italy
A photo of a coffee by the sea with a somewhat unusual diner: a little bird has alighted on the table and takes part in breakfast on the Pozzuoli seafront.
Will he be more interested in the croissant or the coffee in the bar?
7. @gala00029 Àrbatax, Sardinia, Italy
Having a coffee in the summer, maybe before sailing the Arbatax sea: it’s a must before leaving the harbour.
Without a boost of energy, in fact, it would be difficult to appreciate all the other extraordinary beaches of Sardinia.
8. @maria_luisa_ge Genoa, Italy
Priano’s flatbread and espresso coffee: put your hands up if you love savoury breakfasts! In the foreground we have an espresso coffee and a slice of flatbread, typical of Ligurian cuisine. In the background, instead, we can appreciate the beach and the sea of Genoa.
9. @ristorantelarotonda2 Fasano, Italy
Cappuccino, pastry with cream, water, and sea cliffs: What do they remind you of?
In this photo we can find a typical landscape of the holidays in Salento, in which, during breakfast, you can appreciate the sea in all its shades. The pastry is available both in the classic version and with chocolate and grains, and the cups of cappuccino are covered with cocoa.
10. @travelorientaldance Isola D’Elba, Italy
Among the photos of coffee by the sea, the photo of the Elba Island could not be missing. A cappuccino, an espresso and a croissant cut in two, leaned on a windowsill on the blue of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
In the distance there are boats moored at the harbour.
11. @laplayaacquamorta Procida, Italy
Seeing the Procida’s mountain is exciting, especially while having a coffee at the bar. In the image, the table of a seaside bar, set with succulent dishes.
Having an espresso on the rocks, with the sound of the waves breaking in the shore it’s really relaxing.
In the photo, there’s a woman with a coffee in her hand, smiling at someone. The coffee table rests on the gravel and behind it, you can see the choppy sea.
13. @sara_bonvicini_photography Rimini, Italy
A couple having breakfast on the beach, while exchanging a complicit glance on the beach towel.
The colours are soft and convey the poetry of a moment of romance. In the background, summer and the sea, ideal elements for framing two lovers.
14. @cris.bellezza.benessere Thailandia
Let’s move on to exotic images: let’s start with a good morning from Thailand. In the photo there is a set table, set with fruit and savoury dishes, different kinds of drinks and coffee. In the background, a beautiful beach of almost white sand and the sea with a lively and intense colour.
15. @globehotels Oman
Here we move to a higher and luxury level where the dream is reserved for a few people.
In the picture we have a table set with fresh fruit, pastries, coffee, tea, and juices. But what stands out, is the infinity pool in the boulevard leading to the beach. In the pool there are flower beds with palm trees, and then you reach the sea.
16. @breakfastmoodd Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria Sorrento
Among the Instagram accounts to follow if you love coffee, you cannot miss @breakfastmodd who shares beautiful photos of places all around the world.
This photo was taken from the terrace of the Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento, overlooking the harbour and the entire Gulf. The table is full of delicacies, fruit, pancakes, waffles, and coffee.
17. @eatdrink_seafire Cayman Islands
A coffee overlooking the Cayman Islands: a daydream! From the terrace of the resort, a young lady sips her espresso coffee, looking at the Caribbean Sea.
The sand is almost white, and the sea is transparent. There are many palms all along the beach and the sky is of an intense blue.
18. @claudejapswe Como Lake, Italy
Not just sea and coffee, also the Como Lake has its extreme charm and the location where the photo was taken kidnaps.
The breakfast table is set on the terrace, next to the jacuzzi. The coffee in a large cup is accompanied by juices and pastries to be enjoyed with a view on the landscape. The background is made of rich in vegetation mountains.
19. @breakfastwithaview Positano, Italy
Positano is lively, colourful and has a varied landscape in which the mountain ends directly in the water.
Here breakfast is served on a small balcony from which it’s possible see the whole town. The coffee is strictly with cream.
20. @2infood Capri, Italy
Espresso, cappuccino, fresh fruit, and pastries for a breakfast with a breath-taking view of the Faraglioni di Capri.
In a privileged position it is possible to enjoy these natural monuments, symbol of the island, and be embraced by the vegetation.
21. @breakfstmoodd, Zanzibar
Here we have a breakfast by the sea in Zanzibar.
The colours are that beautiful that they seem to be fake, as are the food, drinks, and coffee. The vegetation drives you directly to the beach with a sea between green and blue.
22. @dzabello Corse, France
A coffee-based drink on the boat? This is also possible on every summer Monday! The photo was taken in Corsica and portrays a woman on a boat sipping a coffee-based drink. In the background you can see the crystal clear and transparent sea of the French island.
It would be nice to start every week in this way!
23. @breakfastmoodd Vakkaru, Maldives
A breakfast tray ready to be enjoyed in the swimming-pool. The image is of a hotel in the Maldives, where the room leads directly to the swimming-pool.
The contrast between the white building, the blue of the sky and the green of the water is truly unique.
24. @wildmela Madonna di Campiglio, Italy
A coffee by the sea? Not only! Even in the mountain it is possible to drink an espresso while taking a bath.
Splashing in the water with the Brenta Dolomites in the background is fantastic, as is enjoying breakfast while getting lost in the green of the mountains.
25. @larahpalacio Amalfi, Italy
A woman in a bathrobe drinking her coffee outdoors. The sun is already high on Positano. There are many boats moored in the gulf.
26. @barpiccolasostacatanzaro Catanzaro, Italy
This time, the sea is painted on the coffee tray. A real artistic breakfast offered by a Calabrian bar, that uses hand-made trays and glasses to serve its customers.
The photo was taken on the beach.
27. @xpositiv Thíra, Kikladhes, Greece
The Cycladic Sea is a mix of history, beauty, and emotion. And the colours in these Greek Islands are always in strong contrast with the white of the furnishings and houses, and with the bright tones of the sea and the ground.
28. @gentleman_society Santorini Island Greece
Breakfast overlooking the sea, with the table set between the rocks that follows the shape of the ground.
Looking at this photo it seems to dive directly into the water. The table set for four diners, with plates, cutlery, bread, juice, and coffee.
29. @breakfastmoodd Greece
Here we go far beyond the coffee by the sea. Breakfast is a juxtaposition of goodness, both sweet and savoury. From the brown tones of the table, the coffee, and the floor, you get directly to the swimming-pool without borders overlooking the sea.
The photos of the coffee by the sea made us dream a little. But it is not necessary to reach exotic places to make breakfast magical. Thanks to Pontevecchio lever coffee machines, the espresso coffee has such a unique aroma that makes you hear the waves wherever you are.
