Owner description: 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.

“Fabulous Beach and Lunch!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Totally worth the walk! Beautiful beach, not as crowded as the main beach, and not as expensive for a chair and umbrella. Enjoyed a FABULOUS bruschetta for lunch that now is one of the top two I've eaten in Italy! Free wi-fi nice as well.

“Chrystal clear waters and fewer people than Spiaggia Grande”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

For some time out while visiting Positano, take the stairs to the right(looking out to sea) and walk along a lovely paved cliff path to the Beautiful, less crowded Spiaggia Fornillo. There are a couple of good beach cafe/ lettina(lounge) bars along the beach. We personally had great service from Guido and his family at Ferdinandos( look for the green and yellow umbrellas)! Great food also up on their deck and we made good use of the Kayaks they have for hire!
