The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast?
Choosing one of the most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast is an almost impossible task. All are beautiful, with crystal clear water, fresh breeze and lush landscapes, but today we have gathered the most beautiful of all in a small post for you to know which are the most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast. Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”
In the Campania region, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful in the peninsular country, it is also one of the most sought after, especially during the Italian summer and, therefore, during this period it is very busy. The beaches of the Amalfi Coast are among the most impressive in the Tyrrhenian Sea and are often on the list of the most beautiful in the world, even if they are not very extensive. It’s not hard to understand why, is it ?! Tour from Sorrento to the Amalfi Coast!
Calm, blue and refreshing sea, is the ideal recipe for the hottest days! They say that “the beauty of things likes to hide” and here, between steep cliffs, rocks and games of light and shadow, the beauties call our attention. Many compare the Amalfi Coast with Caribbean beaches: far from it! Here you will discover a completely new way to spend the day at the beach! The cities of the Amalfi Coast are above sea level, so to reach the beach strip itself, it is necessary to descend by small stairs, paths immersed in the green and often ‘discreet’ (not to say hidden) !), but it’s really worth it!
1) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN AMALFI AND ATRANI
Let’s start from Amalfi and Atrani, which is where the beaches that most probably suit all tastes! All kinds of tourists are enchanted by the beaches here! The beaches are well structured and one of the highlights is the beach of Marina Grande, in Amalfi, which is quite lively and suitable for those who want a sparkling summer, besides, the place is one of the centers of coastal nightlife during the summer.
Another beach that deserves attention is Duoglio, which is 1 km from Amalfi, another incredible beach is the Lido Degli Artisti: to get to the beach get ready to go down (then go up!) 400 steps, but it’s worth the pain in your leg the next day! Hahaha… Wind surfing and diving are possible here, there are options for sea sports lovers! For those looking for tranquility, we have Due Scugnizzi beach, which offers a great option for those who prefer to escape the agglomeration. There is a great restaurant for those who love seafood! For those who want to reach the beaches via the sea, every day, from 9 am to 5 pm, every 30 minutes, boats leave from the Amalfi dock; from there the boats go to more distant beaches, like Santa Croce.
- Choose the beaches of Atrani if you have children, the waters are shallow and warm, delicious and safe!
2) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN RAVELLO
We left for Ravello and its “hidden” beach! Castiglione beach is little known and an ideal destination for those who do not want many distractions while enjoying the day “al mare” (at the sea)! The historic center of this village located on the hill serves as a “curtain” to the beach and it is behind it that is a great seaside resort. As in many Italian beaches, there are limited spaces on the Amalfi Coast with free access, in case you want a “spiaggia libera” (free beach), here in Castiglione there are two sides where you can experience an experience that borders the “wild”, in the shade of the scrub of the Mediterranean. As always, to reach these places, access is not the easiest: you need to take the stairs on the main road, just before the crossing to Ravello.
- SITA buses make several stops in front of the steps that allow access to the beaches.
3) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN CETARA
In Cetara, the first name that comes to mind is: Colatura di Alici. The small beach was formed after an earthquake in the 80’s and offers a seaside resort with all the basic services for a day at the beach, including a fantastic restaurant! Despite being an extension of the village, the seabed is very clean and until the end of the afternoon the sun accompanies tourists who are there in search of an impeccable tan! Another very good option is Lannio beach, which is just a few steps from the center of Cetara. Access to Lannio is “camouflaged” behind the harbor tower with the famous and inevitable staircases.
4) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? MAIORI
Maiori beach, on the other hand, has a very unusual scenery when compared to other beaches on the Amalfi Coast. With one kilometer of beach and 15 bathing establishments lined up on the flat shore, this kilometer was made after a catastrophic natural event in 1954. It has an excellent structure with restaurants and even hotels. At the ends are two stretches of free beach with small kiosks, the establishments also offer the possibility to book jet skis and boat trips so you can go through to the Pandora’s Grotto or to the Sulfur Grotto. If you want you can go to Erchie, with 200 meters of beach that are marked by Saracen Towers. Again: to get here: stairs!
5) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN MINORI
In Minori, the scenario has always remained the same: narrow streets, access to the sea immersed in nature, blue sea and cool breeze! The beach here is a little bigger, it is 250 meters. To get here it is mandatory to go through Maiori and take a few turns. Because it is smaller, it is much more crowded, but it is a beauty impossible to describe!
6) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN POSITANO
Once in Positano, head to the beaches of Laurito and Fornillo. Here is a very common destination for the international jet set! No wonder it makes us fall in love instantly! Laurito takes its name from the laurel bushes that grow easily here and frame the stairs that take you to the sea. Despite the movement it is the quietest because of the few free areas, since most of the beach strips are private, just like Fornillo. At Arienzo beach, which is well known for its 300 steps set in an impressive landscape, you will find peace and calm, ideal if you want something more tranquil and unpretentious! The main beach, and one of the most beautiful in Positano, is the beach of Marina Grande. With its 300 meters of coastline, it offers a magical view of the Li Galli Islands.
7) The most beautiful beaches on the Amalfi Coast? IN FIORDE DE FURORE
In Furore, Furore Fjord is just a few steps from Praiano and, every year on the first Sunday of July, there is a very popular diving competition. The waters around here are obviously deep and do you reach the sea through? Stairs!
Nearby is the Marina di Praia beach, part of the municipal area of Praiano and famous for its Torre a Mare, which has a cinematic view! The beach has an excellent structure with bars, restaurants and sun loungers. For those who want to go further, options like Africana Grotto, Suppraiano Grotto and Cala Della Gavitella, are choices that can please; access only by boat, but right there you can hire the service, which operates every half hour.
- Cala della Gavitella has a majestic view of Positano and Capri and can also be reached on foot after 413 steps! 🙂
