One of my favorite summer vacation spots in the world, I fell in love with Positano the moment I saw it! Incredibly picturesque and romantic, no matter how many times I visit, it never quite loses its magic for me and keeps me coming back again and again. Though it’s not a very large city, Positano has quite a bit to offer, so I thought it might be kind of fun to compile a list of my personal Positano must-dos and sees.
The beach! Well, obviously! One of my favorite beaches in the world, when we get to Positano, we spent most of our time at the beach. Positano has both – public and private beaches, but I seriously suggest opting for the private option. Though it’s not cheap ( 25 euros per person for the first row, and 20 euros for the rest ) the private beach tends to be a lot less congested, and the fact that you get a comfortable beach chair/bed and an umbrella is a game changer for me. I mean, if you intent to spend an entire day at the beach, you definitely want to be comfortable!
Drinks with a view – a definite must in Positano! Well, drinks or any meal really, because the views are absolutely incredible! Favorite spots include Hotel Il San Pietro di Positano, Le Sirenuse Hotel Champagne Bar, L’Ancora Hotel and Franco’s Bar! Even if you’re not staying at one of the hotels I just mentioned, you can always come in for a drink, though I definitely suggest making a reservation since these places tend to be pretty popular.
Though there are many wonderful restaurants in Positano, in addition to dining out, we can never resist indulging in fresh fruits and vegetables! Last time we were there, I honestly think I must have eaten my weight in peaches and now that we’re back in LA, I can’t seem to find anything that tastes quite as good! So, definitely go for it while you’re there!
Take time to explore! We always do, and the below spot we found on one of our recent adventures is a new favorite! The views are amazing, and though it takes about 15-20 minutes to get there by taxi ( if you google Belvedere dello Schiaccone you should be able to get the exact location ) it’s definitely worth it!
What about you guys, do you have any Positano favorites I should check out on our next trip?
