  • Great beach cashed. Pebble Beach so think about the beach shoes. A few waves for children. Attention to the elevation in the water for children maos.le edge is enough for them. Transparent and calm water are to the date you.

  • 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)...  more »
  • Positano is a village down to the sea and in particular to Fornillo Beach slightly away from the city center and "Spiaggia Grande", a short and picturesque coastal path connecting these two beaches. Very difficult (if not impossible to park his car downstairs near the beach) so you have to park in parking lots along the road coming down from the heights. Allow 30 minutes of descent by a steep staircase and therefore 45' 1-hour ascent.
