  • Positano has two beaches, "marina grande" is the main one, "fornillo" is the little one, not chaotic and some time is a very good place to relax.  more »
  • The volcanic beaches have pebbles that can be annoying and a good deck chair, sunshade and access to showers and bathrooms is essential to. Good service, price according to the place, clean and care.

  • A smaller, much less busy beach in Positano. Clear water stone beach with various restaurants and bars.
  • The best beach in Positano but that's not meaning it's perfect. By far. If you like stone beaches, this is the place. Ok restaurant and bar.
  • Crystal clear water. Super quiet and calm place. Best beach in Positano! Loved it
  • smaller beach
  • Whereas it is one of the few, if not only beach outside the town of Positano, deserves a generous rating, BUT: 1) is massively and furiously colonized by narrow shores baits. 2) is tiny. 3) the sea isn't up to much, especially in light of the alternatives that the coast offers. 4) like all coastal facilities, you suffer 50 years ' tourism mentality ... for example, if you don't catch the lido right and if you escape pee, you'll have to go hunt for the bathroom key, located about ten meters away, behind a wooden portaccia , ask the lifeguard Hat white, turned to another it will ask you what color is your umbrella or nothing key, pass the test of fire, walk on hot coals, watch an episode of men and women and via discoursing. The end? Simple, force you to free yourself in the sea not to dirty the bathroom.
