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.

Positano beach was busy and crowded so we decided to walk towards the stone castle to the right of the beach. The path is paved and weaves around the cliff to a small less crowded beach. We went the next day with bathers, books and drinks and hired a beach lounge and umbrella (8 euro each). It was warm, sunny... More

Less touristy than spiaghia beach. We found free toilets which is always a bonus in Europe. We also spent about an hour collecting larger chunks of sea glass. This is a hidden gem.

We walked from the main beach in Positano on a path built above the sea into the side wall so the views are exceptional. To get from Positano to this beach is only a 20 min walk on mostly flat path. There are approx 30 steps bringing you down to the path but they are wide steps and much more... More

This place was amazing, really lovely friend family run cafe great service, it is along walk with many steps and I suggest you bring aqua shoes for the beach and to protect your feet when swimming. The water is divine clear as crystal, if you dont mind all the stairs you need to climb just to reach it.

Had our 18-year old granddaughter with us and we all agreed that this restaurant was the worst dining experience that we had in our 3 days in Positano. Not a single person was friendly or made an attempt to make us feel welcome. The food was mediocre at best. They put bread on the table and oil and vinegar but... More

We took a day trip to Positano during April. It was a bit too cold to go swimming, but our kids had a fun time collecting rocks and "pebbles" (they were actually broken beer bottles that were smoothed out from the waves/water). Beware there are a lot of broken glass shards all over this beach. It is also not sandy.... More

Positano is a gorgeous town in Costiera Amalfitana. Its main beach is said to be always crowded. Though it was off-season when we visited there, there were many people sunbathing or playing beach volley or even painting. There are many restaurants where you can have lunch or dinner or take a cold margarita

This is such a gorgeous beach. Yes it has pebbles. But the views are stunning. It's not that busy. You could just rent a chair and spend the day splashing about in the water.
