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

2 adults and 3 children, 4, 6, 9. 25 euros EACH for front row, various additional charges for showers and other activities. Insane price for a rock beach. Beach is a mixture of black rocks, medium smooth gravel and sand. Your feet will hurt, sandals...More

I do not recommend this place, first of all most part of beach has been privatized if you want to have a normal space you need to pay and this is so ridiculous that the hungry Italian government makes money upon something that should be...More

Positano is beautiful. The beach is not. It is crowded. Sunbeds crammed in, row after row bed after bed. 40 eyes to lay next to and almost touching a complete stranger, no thanks not for me. I didn't have the opportunity to look further as...More
