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.

...go to Fornillo. It's less crowded, less expensive, and staff is so friendly. They'll do everything to help you feel comfortable (this includes some very good cocktails too). The water is more clear than on the main beach, make sure you wear some crocs or water shoes because just like on the main beach it's not a sand beach, the small back rocks become hot and are uncomfortable to walk on barefeet.

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.

Clean, cozy and usually just for locals. Perfect. Our family and friends went everyday we were in Positano.

Great for swimming with very reasonable prices, well worth the required walking with stunning views.
