Exploring the Best Beaches on the Amalfi Coast: Sun, Sea and Sand

Amalfi Coast is made up of 13 beautiful seaside towns and villages with many stunning beaches.

The Amalfi Coast towns sit high up on the cliffs overlooking the gorgeous blue sea. Along with these towns come great beaches that can have bathhouses, restaurants, and equipment hire. Whether the beaches are sandy or pebble, it’s so easy to spend hours taking in the views and enjoying sunbathing.

Below are some of the best beaches along the Amalfi Coast, from large well known beaches to hidden gems.

Il Duoglio Spiaggia

Duoglio Beach is in Amalfi and is one of the popular beaches for younger people and sports. You can access this beach by walking down about 400 steps or getting a shuttle from the Amalfi pier.

The beach has a free zone with two bathhouses with restaurants. You can also hire equipment for water sports.

Fiordo di Furore

This pebble beach in Furore is unique as the beach is between two rock faces that connect by a bridge. During summer the beach is busy as the water is calm and perfect for swimming and you get amazing views while sunbathing. You can even jump from parts of the cliff into the water below.

Castiglione Beach

Castiglione Beach is a hidden gem in Atrani and is one of the most popular bathing spots along the Amalfi Coast. The morning is the best time to go to enjoy the sunshine or go in the afternoon if you don’t want to sunbathe.

Castiglione Beach is a mix of public and private beaches, and you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas. You can spend hours relaxing on the beach and enjoying the views of the sparkly turquoise water.

Cala Bianca Beach

A small but beautiful beach in Marina di Camerota. It is a bit of a hike to reach the beach, but it’s worth the trip once you see Cala Bianca Beach. After your hike, you can take a dip straight in the beautiful blue water. Or you can do the quick way and get a boat to make your way to the beach.

When you swim out into the water, there are small caves you can go in and explore. The water looks extra blue in these caves and is a sight to see.

Fornillo Beach

Fornillo Beach is Positano’s second largest beach. The beach features large pebbles and rocks along the water and the shore. Fornillo is also a free beach that has bathhouses with restaurants for you to enjoy a nice meal.

Every year on the last Saturday night in September, the Fish Festival happens at Fornillo Beach. You can expect there to be live music, dancing, and many different cuisines of fish to buy.

Whether you visit some of the largest to the small intimate beaches, they all have beautiful turquoise and clear water. All the beaches along the Amalfi Coast are worth visiting just to enjoy relaxing with a gorgeous view.
