  • La Spiaggia di Fornillo seems to be a haunted beach. Hidden among the cliffs of Positano stone emerges this small beach of emerald green water that looks the symmetrically arranged traditional umbrellas/parasols worthy of a postcard Mediterranean. He owns a beauty worthy of story, of an aesthetic that unmistakably makes the visitor feel that Mediterranean air. You can walk from Positano. Going to step between, in ten minutes or less we arrive at this beautiful beach of Fornillo. The route extends through an area of the cliff of the city where breathtaking views are obtained. La Spiaggia di Fornillo account with several options of beach bars / restaurants, so it is not essential to having to take something to eat / drink. A detail is the coastal strip of Boulder! . So for those who want to sunbathe in horizontal position advise taking something upholstered either rent deck because these pebbles are felt! :) . Ideal to enjoy with friends / family. A familiar and pleasant atmosphere. He would come back whenever you can! You will see my photos!.

  • We spent our Sunday in this peculiar beach of the Amalfi coast, and, despite the water being cold, she is clean and transparent. As there's no sand that we used to have in Brazil, because it's pure stones, feet hurt too much to walk and get in the water, something that the people there, used to it, using a letter Strip neoprene or plastic slippers, Melissa type. There is no service to the beach, but the beach restaurants have several options of delicious dishes and cold drinks. I had lunch a delicious Mediterranean style salad I loved!! To leave eh to take: If you're staying in the middle of the city, you can choose to climb the 300 steps, or give back to Praia Grande and up the slope by the main avenue. Plenty of exercise after the sea relax. But in Positano has no way of escape stairs and slopes, the charm of the place is in these details. Pay the price and go restore the energies in one of the restaurants of the city and drink a great wine!
