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. « less

This was a relaxing beachfront tucked a bit further away from the center of town. Well worth the extra time to find a place to relax away from the crowded beach.

It's a beach but not as we know it. Sunbeds were cheap (8Euros) but packed like sardines. Today was cloudy. We were entertained by numerous helicopters collecting water from the sea trying to put out a fire in the mountains. Lovely Positano but we' all try another beach.

I enjoyed my time at Fornillo, but I felt it was a bit more crowded than Arienzo. So I would go to Arienzo again if I could choose. We stayed right in the beginning in the blue beds, the restaurant had many options. The chairs were slightly cheaper (8 euros). My bf favored this place because of a seafood risotto... More

I prefer Fornillo over all of the beaches in the area. It is far enough away from the main beach so it is quieter, smaller and cleaner, but close enough to walk, so you are not tied to a water taxi to shuttle you back and forth. I love the beach bars, the chair rentals and the overall "local" vibe... More

The beach is a little more distant to the harbor but much more nicer, more empty and also cheaper then the main beach directly at the harbor. The way to it is also nice and has a good view on the sea. Ask for the prices at the different beaches, we paid 8 Euro for a day with sunbed and... More
