La Dolce Vita: A Beach Vacation in the Breathtaking Village of Positano

Few places are as fascinating and diverse as Italy. The southern European country has enamored countless travelers worldwide with its rich with culture, lovely landscapes, charming cities and a limitless contingent of good food. Located by the Mediterranean Sea, Italy’s mesmerizing coasts are aplenty, with the Amalfi coast being considered the crown jewel.

Positano, the incredible cliffside village, has become one of the most sought-after vacation spots on the Amalfi coast for good reason. The city mixes colorful buildings, lush green and lovely seascapes which, when combined with incredible weather, create a strong argument for this place being an ideal destination for a beach vacation.

Hotels di Mare

No relaxing vacation is complete without spending some days at the seaside, so imagine this. You wake up in your hotel room, open the windows, take a deep breath of fresh sea air, throw on your bathing suit and go explore the beaches around. Soon, you find yourself on one of various pebble beachfronts, soaking up the Italian sun and warm weather.

Due to high demand, there are a wide array of accommodations to be found around the Amalfi coast; however, the variety within Positano really stands out. Depending on your priorities, a chic boutique hotel, relaxing resort or beachfront hotel on one of the beaches may spark your interest. The village is built into the cliffs, meaning that most accommodations, regardless of their distance to the beach, will offer sea views. Using trivago, you can refine your search to include accommodations with outdoor pools or beach access, whatever be your preference. The hotels range in price, with rental houses and serviced apartments generally being the most affordable.

Amalfi’s Finest Beaches - Choose Where and What

A good place to start may be Marina Grande Beach, Positano’s largest and most popular beach, where there are various bars, hotels and restaurants nearby. However, if seeking a more peaceful and tranquil experience, you will likely prefer a quieter atmosphere such as that found at Fornillo or Laurito Beach. Laurito Beach is most charming and secluded, reached only by boat. Lastly, Arienzo Beach speaks to more active travelers. Also referred to as “300 steps beach”, a reference to the number of steps beach enthusiasts need to climb down to reach it, this beach faces south west and has the most sun hours of any others in the village. For those who can’t see themselves just lounging, there’s also the possibility of hiking by the cliffs or renting a kayak and exploring the blue waters.
