  • Small beach accessed via a path with very evocative views. Clean sea and not so much assault by tourist troops. The beautiful nature and the air of peace that we are here are engaging. Here relaxation is a rite that must be enjoyed in full. Typical restaurants where you can eat at good prices. To see!

  • Fornillo Beach is very scenic. It is a 10 minute walk from Positano city center. Beautiful views of Tyrrhenian Sea and an ancient stone watch tower.  more »
