This stretch of coastline has often been described as the most beautiful in the entire Mediterranean. One afther another, green and rocky mountainsp lunge dramatically into the mediterranean blue sea. The famouse Amalfi Coast road clings to the mountainsides revealing a succession of picturebook wiews 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.

Friendly relaxing atmosphere

Definitely one of the friendliest beach bars in Positano with a nice well maintained beach area. Good food and drinks and value for money.

From the great beach, facing the water, walk the pathway to your right and you will reach Fornillo. Since it is January, the beach was empty. Someone told us that in summer, Fornillo would be better, less people. It is a smallish beach - but clean.

Positans "second beach" has a tranquillity far different from its main beah nearby which affords you a choice. During season it has its concession stands and umbrella rentals along with a selection of excellent luncheon restaurants. Off season it is a paradise of serenity and great beauty. The sea affords a calmness which pacifies the spirit into wonderings of ancient... More

While in Positano at the end of October for five days, we asked hotel staff about the beaches nearby. We wanted to spend a very relaxing day in the sun and ocean for the afternoon. Staff recommended we walk to Fornillo Beach. There are many more beaches near Positano and transport can be had via water taxi from Spiaggia Grande.... More

Escape from the tourist masses, walk 10 minutes and find yourself on a small, almost private-like beach without the clutter and loud noises.

Quite a busy, bustling restaurant in Positano. Service was ok, as was the food - I can't really say more than that. It didn't get us excited, and it didn't make us grumpy either. Which makes it fairly pricy for average fare. It had none of the little touches that some Italian restaurants have - like a free tot of... More

Beautiful place to relax, people watch, and appreciate that you are relaxing along the Amalfi Coast! The beach is rocky, but do you really care?

This is what people were calling the local beach. It was more quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed swimming, having some pulpo stew and peach wine spritzer at the small beach shop, and laying on the lounge chairs. The beach snack shop will run you up to the main beach for free via boat after.

The beach was very pretty and not too crowded but you may want to bring along water shoes because it is rocky.
