The enchanting town of Positano makes us swoon at first site. It’s no wonder celebrities want to live here. This grand beach seems to be at the center of it all. With people in and out of the many restaurants and shops, they all find...More

Positano has a pebble beachfront which was absolutely packed when we were there. It is far busier than Amalfi – full of tourists. Positano is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a visit. However, there isn’t a lot to do there and it’s very busy and...More

Amongst one of the nicest beaches that I have seen and the most amazing back drop. If you want to take some gorgeous photos, this is the place to take them. While it is beautiful, there are a lot of tourists that do come here...More

Travelled late October and the weather was not kind. The sea was so rough no ferries were running. So we took the Sita bus from Sorrento and was pleased the driver was cautious! We got off the bus at the second Positano stop which gave...More

Travelled on a Sita bus (public transport) great value at €4 return each but you may have to stand. Don’t get off at the first stop in Positano as it’s a very steep way down. Get off at the Sponda stop and walk down the...More

Like most Italian beaches, there is a public and private area for this small beach. Like most of the below reviews, I agree that it’s extremely crowded and not really worth it. When I came five years ago at the same time of year, the...More

After spending months looking at pictures of Positano we couldn’t wait to get on the beach here but it was the worst beach I have ever been to. First we were told that we couldn’t go on a sun lounger at the start of the...More

It's about 20 Euro to rent a chair for the day, but for me, enjoying the view was worth it. The beach is packed for a reason, especially during tourist season. This definitely isn't a place where you will enjoy privacy, but if you're in...More

After strolling the streets and shops of Positano in the morning we grabbed lunch and thought we would spend the afternoon relaxing by the beach. We went into L’incanto to rent 2 chairs and an umbrella; 20 Euros per person for the afternoon. Great spot,...More
