This stretch of coastline has often been described as the most beautiful in the entire Mediterranean. One after another, green and rocky mountains plunge dramatically into the Mediterranean blue sea. The famous Amalfi Coast road clings to the mountainsides revealing a succession of picture book views each seemingly more stunning than the one before. Not so many years ago much of this coast was only accessible by boat. Now it is a fashionable resort area which retains the charm of past times.

For ourselves, we prefer Spiaggia Grande. For one thing, the "pebbles" on Fornillo beach are downright rocks; for another, the service is slightly better (in only in the sense of better accoutrements) on Spiaggia Grande (where, for instance, you will receive your bottle of water...More

What a find! Fornillo Beach is an EASY ten minute walk from the maddening crowds of Positano, with sun loungers and umbrellas being available from Hotel Pupetto and Da Ferdinando, both of which have restaurants on the beach.

Large free beach area was great and not nearly as packed as the main Spiaggia Grande. Being from the USA, was not used to the rocky beaches of the coast, but water was very refreshing. Be ready to brave the 300+ stairs to get there!

Great little picturesque beach which has everything you need, decent beachside food options, plenty of beach space and chairs if you want them, and the water is nice and clean/clear. It can be a bit of a trek to get here from the main road,...More

Much quieter than main beach, pay for chair rental for the day, and you can use the establishment's water taxi service to and from main beach.

Loved fornillo beach!! It was my favourite in Positano. The pebble beach was just that. No dirt or sand in between the rocks to mess your clothes and feet. The beds were clean and appeared to be much newer (or better kept) than those on...More

We stayed in Positano for three days and went to this beach every day. Compared to the main beach, Fornillo is quieter and water is cleaner. My son and my friends' daughter really enjoyed swimming and snorkeling in the water. There are also plenty places...More

Tucked away by a few hundred stairs that make this beach worthwhile. The beach has more of a local feel and the stairs down offer views not to be missed. Great beach for families also!

We visited the beach when we were staying in Positano. You get there by boat ( 2 minutes). It's free if you rent the sun-loungers and umbrellas from the company that runs the boat (there are two companies but I honestly forgot the names), You...More

Absolutely loved this little beach! We ate lunch at the main beach but we soon looked elsewhere when we saw them trying to charge €15 per sunbed!! Luckily fornillo wasn't far, just a matter of walking around the cliffs and down some stairs. Was only...More
