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.

Busy thriving space. Layout well constructed. Not able to get a chair close to the beach as arrived late, but the views of the water still good, and the surrounding spaces clean and orderly.

12.50E for the day the Captain gives you beach chair with head shade, umbrella and small stand. worth the price. note: the sand/rocks are extremely HOT but once in the water you won't want to come out. you can also rent a raft for 5E a day to just float around in..paradise

This is the smaller beach of the 2 in Postiano. We liked it because it is much less crowded than the bigger one. Both beaches have pebbles for sand.

We decided to have our lunch there, when paying the waiter tried to short us by 10 euro. When confronted, he smiled said sorry and pulled out the 10 euro! Geez!

Being an Aussie we're used to fine sandy beaches, so we struggled with Italian Beaches in general, as laying out in the sun all day (and paying for it) on a pebbly beach is not the Aussie thing. Having said that we came to this beach twice in the week we were there - once to swim and twice to... More

We have been to this restaurant at least twice before and had a wonderful, authentic Italian meal each time. Not any more. We originally had a Thursday reservation but had to change it to Saturday, and unfortunately they completely changed their menu on Friday. It is no longer Italian, it is a contemporary tasting menu, while not terrible, it is... More

Busy pebbly beach with a stair walk down and up. Chairs and umbrella's will cost you but there is a section if you don't require that... water is amazing!

A great place to experience a swim in the clear waters of the Mediterranean off a typical pebbled beach.

We have been there with the kids on several occasions during our 1 week stay in Positano. Nicer & quieter than the main beach, spiagga grande. The view is breathtaking. The better spots are closer to hotel Puppetto- they are friendly there and you are further from the boats coming to drop off people. Flip flops, or footwear is essential... More
