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.

Took a front row sun lounge with beach umbrella for €12.50 with Cafe Pupetto (included wifi and use of toilets). The sun lounges from the 2nd row back are €10 for the day. At the other beach the prices are €25 and €20. This beach...More

a nice beach if you want less busy than the main beach in Positano. I would recommend reef shoes as the stones are very hot and too far to walk to bare foot.

We went kayaking off this beach and at this time of year it is very busy. It is supposed to be the locals beach and less expensive than the main Positano one. There are some nice beach bars but don’t bother with La Marinella at...More

Our hotel booked us from row seats for f. Illi grassi and it was a great day. The food and aperols were pretty well priced too. Ideally we would have taken towels from the hotel to save us the hiring fee but such is life....More

We rented chairs from Fratelli Grassi at Fornillo Beach, 10 euro for the day - great experience! The beach was nice and the facilities (snack bar, restrooms) were all just fine. There's a boat that can shuttle you from the main pier in Positano, but...More

Our hotel overlooked the public beach but recommended we make the walk to Fornillo. The path is easy to walk and so worth it - this beach is clean, relatively quiet and has many options for drinks and food if you want to stay the...More

In my opinion, Fornillo beach is the best in Positano. You can take the free red boat from the main beach or access it by a trail of steep stairs. There are a few beach clubs you may make a reservation at for chairs, umbrellas...More
