Positano is a small town which lies in the center of the Amalfi coast on the Amalfi peninsula in the South of Naples in Italy. Just across the town of
Positano are the Galli islands which consist of 3 islets.
Positano is a renowned yacht charter location on the Amalfi coast and attracts many visitors all year round.
The marina of Positano lies on an adjoining beach known as the Spiaggia Grande which is lined with several chic restaurants where you can taste some
exquisite dishes of Italian cuisine.
The town of Positano is dotted with steeply stacked houses lined with peaches, pinks and terracotta trees and its vertical streets (which are in fact
staircases) are lined with shops, jewelry stalls, some elegant hotels and smart restaurants.
The main attractions in the town of Positano are its shops especially those selling the distinctive Moda Positano (made-to-measure clothes) which is a
fashion phenomenon that exploded in the area in the 50’s and a symbol of freedom and rebellion against the rigid dress code of the period.
One of the main reasons why so many yacht charter tourists come to Positano every year in summer is without a doubt due to the town’s beautiful pebbly
waterfront, its fantastic beaches and related water sports attractions.
You can visit the area at time throughout the year but the best season is in summer when the bougainvillea is in full bloom, when there are numerous boat
trios and cruises, windsurfing and various harbor front cafes where you can spend your free time enjoying the beauty of the place.
You will have the opportunity to explore the numerous coastal vistas across the town and even take a stroll along the Via Positanesi d’America which is a
Cliffside pathway leading the beaches of Spiaggia del Fornillo and the Spiagga Grande.
You can also a scenic drive towards the Bay of Salerno nearby which is dotted with some gorgeous limestone cliffs and winding roads offering some truly
awesome panoramic views of the area.
Nature lovers can also enjoy the hiking trails along the Amalfi coast where they can walk along the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei) which connects
Positano to the towns of Praiano and Conca dei Marini where it is recommended to visit the Grotto dello Smeraldo.
