It is said that the residents of Arola, a hamlet high in the hills above, walked down a steep path to bathe at this beach, a few miles outside Positano.
This is a wide and deep beach by Amalfi Coast standards, with pebbles instead of sand, like most of the swimming spots here.
In the past, this small cove was the starting point for the pirates to raid commercial boats.
Le Grottelle beach is a secluded spot near Positano, about 2 1/2 kilometers from town.
With 350 meters of seafront space, the Marina di Tordigliano Beach is one of the largest on the Amalfi Coast.
Torre di Clavel Beach is an enchanting little seaside spot below the remains of the 16th century watch tower that was known as Torre Fornillo, until it was renamed for Count Clavel Gilbert, a Swiss nobleman and writer who restored it early in the last century.
The "last" beach in Positano, just beyond Spiaggia Grande, is only about 40 meters farther and yet is a different world.
Named for the district outside of Positano in which it's situated, Varo Ferola is a pebble beach that is fairly unknown.
The beach of Arienzo lies just a few minutes out of Positano (towards Amalfi).
A secluded beach reachable only by boat, it's a nice, solitary spot for those wanting to get away from the crowds.
Coming from Positano to Fornillo Beach you will admire, from the top of a rocky staircase, an outstanding small piece of paradise held into a shell, with the splendid Clavel Tower just behind.
Spiaggia Grande (the "large beach") is the main beach of Positano, as well as the center for many of the activities of the village.
