Lounging, Laurito and Limoncello

A perfect day in Positano is all about the sun sea sunbed and lunch!

  • 1. Ristorante da Adolfo

    A lunch-time only restaurant located on a little beach called Laurito, a short 15 minute boat ride along the coast from Positano. Take the 'red fish' boat from the main pier every half an hour between 10am - 1pm (it's free) and after you arrive, hire a sunbed and soak up some Southern Mediteranean sun, take a swim in the clear waters all before lunch (which is served from Noon). After indulging in mozzarella grilled on lemon leaf, spaghetti con vongole (clams), freshly grilled fish, the adolfo salad, and any one of the many dolci on offer - accompanied by a large carafe of local wine - linger over a little glass of Limoncello. So that's Laurito, Lounging and Limoncello all if you happen to have one spare day in Positano. Da Adolfo is a casual, family-friendly restaurant located right on the beachfront at Laurito. Perfect for a day of swimming, sunbathing and lunching. On my first trip to Positano many years ago I enjoyed a fun relaxed day at Da Adolfo and whole heartedly recommend this place for a perfect day out in Positano.

  • 2. Eat and Drink Like a Local

    Where do the locals hang out for a drink or a bite to eat? This is the question most seasoned travellers ask. If you would like to experience the local side to Positano I recommend taking the Interno Positano bus to the very top of town at the Chiesa Nuova, and stopping there to have a glass of vino or a coffee at the Bar Internazionale. After that you can pop in next door to the Grottino Azzurra restaurant for lunch or dinner -renowned for its freshly home made pasta and garden grown produce - it's like stepping into mama's kitchen for a home-cooked meal, at an affordable price.

  • 3. Off the Beaten Track

    Way up the winding mountain road high above Positano is a tiny little village called Nocelle. Once you arrive there you will find a piazza and a church and a glorious panoramic view down to Positano. It almost feels like you are in heaven, way up here above the soaring cliffs of the Amalfi Coast. In fact, Nocelle links up to the famous Walk of the Gods, a hiking trail that winds its way along the coast to Amalfi. If you don't feel like trading in your sandles for sandshoes/walking boots then I suggest you make your way to Ristorante Santa Croce. It's the only restaurant in Nocelle, where you can enjoy the view comfortably from your window table. It's off the beaten track but well worth the 30 minute bus ride from Positano.
