The beach is perched at the bottom of the town of Positano and offers stunning views "up" from the water. The water was very clean, clear and calm. We chilled out on rafts and floated peacefully. You can grab a pizza and snack on the beach!

No the best of the two beaches in Positano. Ferries & boats & tourists for days. If your after a relaxing swim, head for Fornillo around the corner.

Sun, scenery, food, and shopping!!!! This beach has it all, but is full of tourists. From the winding cobblestone streets that take you down to the beach, to all of the hidden shops, this beach is one of my absolute favorites. You could easily spend the entire day here people watching, or catch a ferry boat to Capri. Positano is definitely worth a day trip, but in my opinion too touristy for more than a few days.

We loved this beach, its not for everyone. pebbles which shelve of quite steeply as you go into the water, so you have to launch yourself in, but once in the water is warm and safe and the views spectacular! they also have a safety barrier to keep any boats away so swimming is really safe and a joy! The sun loungers are pricey at 12 euros, but worth it unless you want to go to the free beach area and lie on a lilo.

This beach is a hub of life day and night; shops, bars, restaurants, artists, beach loungers galore and even a docking harbour for landing craft bringing people to and from Capri, Salerno, and many smaller boats ferry people to private restaurants with exclusive beaches.
We loved people watching from many vantage points we found to seat and drink our wine without paying ridiculous prices tourists happily pay at the front.
