The most beautiful beaches in Positano
In this small village, there are plenty of places where you can enjoy swimming or taking long baths. It is very difficult to choose so BookingNaples has 3 suggestions for you.
The beach of Arienzo can be reached after a walk that comprehends three hundred steps. The route is certainly tiring but does not worry: you can compensate for the tiredness with the striking views. From there you can enjoy unique landscapes and see some luxurious architectures such as the villas that belonged to personalities from the entertainment world such as Franco Zeffirelli.
The Marina Grande beach is the main in the village. It is the most frequented by the people that live there and tourists and it is the one in which more events are held.
Marina Grande welcomes several establishments and areas where you do not have to pay to go to the beach. Moreover, from there it is possible to get on small boats to reach other more isolated and quiet beaches.
Laurito is one of the most special beaches of Positano because of its smallness and wildness. You can get there via a stairway situated behind the Hotel San Pietro. The name of the beach is due to the laurel plants that surround it. From there you can reach several restaurants on the sea where you can taste the typical cuisine of the area with the most genuine products – if you wish to enjoy this experience, booking is strongly recommended.
