Overview
More
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.

Lovely, inconic views that span from the main beach to the castle. Smaller, more intimate setting with lovely beachfront “al fresco” restaurants ... The walk down to this beach is winding and a little steep, so may hinder some from coming, but each turn is...More

This is a quite beach in Positano away from the tourist hustling of the main beach. Family run pop up caffes for summer with lovely Italian panini and great conversation. Bring your Aqua Reef Shoe's for swimming, you should always carry a pair when travelling...More

Fornillo is a perfect place to enjoy the beach at Positano without being amongst the hundreds of tourists leaving and arriving by ferry. It is a 10 minute walk along the coastline, west of the main beach in Positano. You can spend all day there...More

This is a quiet beach on a calm waterfront area of Positano. You can relax on the beach with lounges and umbrellas.

Beach located on the west of Positano. It takes a 15 minutes walk from the docks. As we went at Autumn, there were few people there and we could sit and relax.

So glad we took the extra 10 minutes to walk down to this beach. The walk there provided beautiful views! The beach has very large rocks, no sand, and lots of beach glass! We were there for an hour and found a good palm full...More

Quiet beach away from the crowds. This beach is a great place to relax and take a swim. It's a cobble beach so you may want to bring water/beach shoes. The water is warm and inviting.

The main beach in Positano is very crowded. Most of the beach is controlled by one of the clubs where they charge for access and for lounges, thus leaving little room for non-paying visitors. A short walk to the north is Fornillo. They too have...More

Wonderful staff and food. Really loved the service of a sun lounge and towel without the hassle of lying on the sand.

Bright blue clear water, dark sand, gentle waves most days; at the base of very high, steep cliffs that would seem too steep to build on, but residences and hotels are stacked beautifully to the cliff tops, sometimes obscured by low clouds. Restaurants and bars...More
