Secluded Beaches.

by 2AussieGuys

Hi travellers. Looking at staying in Positano during August - does anyone know if its possible to hire a boat to take us to a nice beach or swimming area for the day - rather than trying to squeeze into the busy main beaches??? I am assuming there are some smaller cute places along the coast where we could get away from the crowds maybe - but would need a boat (and driver obviously) to take us there. Possible??

Anything is possible with the moolah. Go down to the dock and ask the scuba shop people for refer.

i don't know personally of the details since we did not do this, but private charters can be arranged through your hotel. do note that most of the beaches on this peninsula are pretty rocky or at least pebbly.

Yes, that is exactly the case...and very small as well. I very much doubt any will be 'secluded' during August, which is the heigh of the season. Plenty of Italian holidaymakers have their own boats.

'Anything is possible if you have the moolah' is not always the case in Europe, but it is of course possible to hire a boat + driver for private excursions. It will not be cheap. Here's an example of a local company;

Hi,

When my friends and I were in Positano, we were boating practically every day -- If you go down to the 'Spiaggia Grande'--the main beach -- you will find all the boat rental companies lined up. If you are pretty good with maneuvering on a boat, you can self-drive yourself in one of the small rentals and explore on your own. We did find some quaint little coves that way.
You can also hire a a captain, but agree with the previous comment that it might be tough to find a quiet spot in August!

Regardless, you are selecting a lovely place for your holiday! We spent almost 3 weeks there and it was one of the best vacations.

Enjoy!

Travel Tips for Positano

Origins of Positano

by sandysmith

Positano has ancient origins, being founded by the fugitives of Paestum, escaping from the Saracens (confirmed by historical searches). Incidentally if you have the chance to visit Paestum, south of Salerno, do - its a marvellous site of greek temples. Lots of info on my Paestum page.

It has followed the same destiny of the Amalfi Republic; it was the place of the Naval Academy too. During the 16th and 17th century, it became rich thanks to this trade.

Get Baptized!!!!

by Geisha_Girl

Baptize yourselves in the refreshing (yet SALTY) waters of Salerno Bay! The water was a welcome relief to the hot days we spent on the beach. You can have your own natural exfoliation and pedicure with the rocky bottom of the bay. Good for the calluses and great for smooth, silky skin!!!

Visit Pompeii from Positano.

by K.Knight

On a tragic day in AD79, Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried the town of Pompeii in 6 metres (20 feet) of pumice and ash. The city, which is still undergoing ectensive excavation, is petrified in time and some buildings still show paintings and art work.

All of this can be discovered by a short 25 minute drive/bus ride from Amalfi to Sorrento and then a 25 minute train ride directly to the front gate of this fascinating city.

From Positano to Cinque Terre: by car or by train?

by microsensazione

From Positano to "Five Lands" renting a car...
I'd rent it in Naples Airport, I think it's the simplest way.

Anyway I suggest to go to "Cinque Terre" area by train. It is more comfortable.
Take a look on
http://www.ferroviedellostato.it/homepage_en.html
and test a possible travel from Naples to Riomaggiore

One last thing. It's not so simple to park the car on "Five Lands" area: trains, boats and feet are by far the best transportations over there.

Feel you welcome in Italy!

top of the mountain restaurant!!

by dlchilders about La Tagliata

This restaurant is at the tip top of Positano - higher than you can imagine until you get there, believe me! Montepertuso is the village. Have the hotel call and make reservations for you. They send a bus to come and get you. This may seem like a pain, but it is so worth it to see the view on your way up to the tip top. Bring your camera!!!
The restaurant is truly what you imagine if you have not been to Italy before. Family run and operated. Locals go here too. The night I had dinner there, I had been to a small beach/restaurant outiside of Positano and the owners of that establishment were there that night with a huge group of locals having dinner there as well! So, you know if the locals go, it must be good! Or, that is what Rachel Ray always says and she is right!! I had three or four kinds of pasta. I even took a photo of the plate when it was served. Didnt care how silly I looked either. I knew I wanted to remember it!!! ;-) Fresh, homemade pasta - not barilla! Simple, fresh sauce. The pasta was very light. That is how it is supposed to be. Try this place - you couldnt possibly be let down in any regards!
