A few meters over from Ciglio Beach near Erchie, Sovarano Beach is set in a similar cove but is a bit larger. It is well sheltered as well, but the sun stays longer in this cove. This beach got the name – like many other beaches along the Amalfi Coast – from a farmhouse that sat on the hill overlooking the gorge about two centuries ago. The locals call it "Sgarrupo", dialect word for "dirupo" (Italian precipice) because of the steep path leading to the beach... not by any means an easy scramble. The easier approach is to pay a small fee for the water taxi that will bring you over from Erchie. The beach is 50 metres large and faces south-east, so that the glorious summer sunbeams kiss it until early afternoon. There are no services here, though a "mobile bar" will pull up in a boat to sell cold drinks and ice creams!

The Sovarano Beach is located between Cetara and Erchie.
