100 Beaches

100 Beaches

The 100 beaches of the Amalfi Coast: a dive into where the water is bluest!
From Vietri sul Mare to Punta Campanella forget long sandy stretches: along the Amalfi Coast, beach means a remnant of pebbles torn from the cliff, which drops vertically into deep dark green water…
Most of the towns are above the coast, and getting to the beaches means having to face long stairways or narrow paths…but the reward for any effort is 100 corners of paradise with crystalline water, even better if venturing by boat, so as to experience the thrill of discovering beautiful and rarely visited places.
Not to be missed, Vietri sul Mare (1) and Cetara, beaches whose names are more than interesting: the beach of Lemons (4), the Schiarata, Collata(3), the Clear Water (5), the Lovers’ beach…
Followed by the wide beaches of Maiori (2), the beach of Atrani (6), the Marina Grande in Amalfi (7), Duoglio, Santa Croce (8), the Marinelle (9), the Marina in Conca and Furore.
Further along, Marina di Praia and La Gavitella (10) and finally the beaches of Positano (11), frequented by celebrities and artists, where there is an international but authentically Italian atmosphere:
Arienzo, Laurito, the Spiaggia Grande or the crowded Fornillo, which is reached via a romantic walk suspended between the sea and the rocks…
After Positano, there are numerous beaches with crystal clear water…but that can only be reached via the sea…
The coastline is concluded by the beaches of Punta Campanella: the most famous are Marina del Cantone and Recommone, where the water is always spotlessly clean and pleasantly cool, thus the beaches 99 and 100 are Marinella di Jeranto (12) and Jeranto Grande, on the furthest point of the Amalfi Coast, where it joins the Sorrento Peninsula.
