This stretch of coastline has often been described as the most beautiful in the entire Mediterranean. One after another, green and rocky mountains plunge dramatically into the Mediterranean blue sea. The famous Amalfi Coast road clings to the mountainsides revealing a succession of picture book views 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.

On the quieter side of Positano, where the locals go. Casual beach restaurants and bars - sun loungers to rent. Visit da Ferdinando Beach Bar for great ambience, food and vinol

We stayed up the steps in Hotel Vittoria so quite handy for us to get to. We just lay on towels on the beach rather than pay 10/12 euros for a bed. Pebbles are quite hard to walk on but you get used to it.

Fornillo is a great and easy thing to do, less than 2 mins by boat from the main pier, its best to book ahead to get a front seat, but that doesn't guarantee an Italian won't move their chair in front of you anyways! which...More

A little more of a walk but Worth the walk - very quiet n comfortable area to relax. Surprised there was not sand but the pebbles added to the attraction. Many places to eat too.

We rented chairs from De Ferdinando for 10 euros each. We also ate at their beach bar and were impressed-very good food and friendly people. The bathroom is very accessible and it was nice to have the beach bar steps away. Beware of jellyfish in...More

For ourselves, we prefer Spiaggia Grande. For one thing, the "pebbles" on Fornillo beach are downright rocks; for another, the service is slightly better (in only in the sense of better accoutrements) on Spiaggia Grande (where, for instance, you will receive your bottle of water...More

What a find! Fornillo Beach is an EASY ten minute walk from the maddening crowds of Positano, with sun loungers and umbrellas being available from Hotel Pupetto and Da Ferdinando, both of which have restaurants on the beach.

Hotel Puppetto is the hotel there that rents the chairs. You pay at the bar/deck.
