Conca Dei Marini?

Hello, we are travelling to Amalfi at the end of September. I found a great vacation rental in Conca Dei Marini and was curious... Is that a good location to travel around the area from? We will have a car. Any advice would be much appreciated.

Conca is fine, but you will be forced to drive everywhere (which can be an expensive proposition) or take the bus.

Had a place on the beach last June in Conca dei Marini ... was magic! ... if you are renting a car be certain your apartment provides parking ... most times we used a water taxi or bus ... you will be close to Amalfi which is a kind of transportation hub to anywhere on the coast ... enjoy!

Hello! How easy are the water taxi and buses to access? How much do they cost?

... there is a water taxi at the beach/fishing village of Conca dei Marini ... think it was about €5 RT to Amalfi Centro ... it's an on demand service run by Gianfranco Gambardella ... Enjoy!

... did not make the trip to Positano but it is only a little further than Amalfi ... guess the charge is a bit more than €5

... in addition to the on-demand water taxi service at Conca, the restuarants there (la Tonnarella, Risorgimento) offer complimentary water transport to and from other villages ... of course you will need to be a client but keep that in mind ... as well other beach restuarants along the Coast offer such service ... I have frequently used the service offered by da Teresa at Spiaggi Santa Croce to and from Amalfi ... Enjoy!

Don't rely on the SITA bus. I was on it yesterday from Positano to Amalfi and after the pickup at Positano Sponda it was full - packed - I was standing the whole way - and it didn't stop anywhere until Amalfi.

The looks on the faces of the people waiting in Praiano, Furore, Conca when the bus bypassed their stop because there was simply no more room? Not pretty.
