“relaxing and beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

rocky beach, but that is italy, we went to the private part, and for 10 euro each, we had reclining chairs, a beach umbrella with table, and we could leave and come back all day and not pay again or lose our spot. also, the guys got our drinks and snacks for us at cost, it was wonderful. the public part was crowded, no chairs, and you shared the beach with beached boats

“Great Place For Sun & Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Spiaggia Grande (meaning big beach) is the place to go for fun, sun and people watching. Artists work on paintings along the promenade, colorful boats lay along the dark sandy beach, local men meetup here, leaning against the boats and enjoying lively conversation, children have bike races and play impromptu soccer games and buff Italian guys play some beach volleyball. Restaurants are filled with tourists grabbing a quick bite before catching the local ferry.

“Spectacular location and feel. Wonderful spot for the last day of the year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

Came to Positano on the bus from Sorrento on Dec 31st. Beatiful warm day. Tons of folks enjoying the beach. Great gelateria right on the beach. Beautiful sunlight could have stayed for longer. Happy we made one if the last buses at 16:20. But was so full we had to stand the whole ride back to Sorrento! Well worth it.
