Owner description: 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.

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?

Sea kayaking, cheap sun loungers and clean and tidy. Great experience. Short walk to the main part of Positano. Love it

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.

The water here is nice and clean. Just note: the beach is pebbly/rocky. There are plenty of great restaurants (and they are not overly priced) close by so when you get hungry you can grab something to eat or grab some gelato. You can rent chairs and your hotel should provide you with a beach towel.

Not much to say here except that there is nothing better than sunning or swimming on a Positano beach.

Short walk from the main beach (Spiaggia Grande) area is well worth the effort, with a slight incline walkway and then stairs down to the beach. Beautiful serenity hard to find elsewhere on the coast. Restaurants overlooking the beach are a romantic treat.

My third time here and I won't go into how lovely the beach is as it's all been said below. However, there is a Thai lady who roams around offering massages. DO IT. Her massage was far and away better than any expensive spa massage I've had on cruise ships, in hotels or in spas. Even if you just get... More
