Hi friends, welcome back to my Italy series! On our last full day in Positano we planned to take the ferry to Capri, but the Positano port was closed for construction, so we took it as a sign to have one pure day of relaxation. I would’ve loved to see Capri and take another ferry ride, but I was also happy to soak up all the time in Positano. We slept in a little and I went out on the balcony to take some pictures on the peaceful morning. I wouldn’t mind waking up to this view every day!
We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast and our coffees at the restaurant downstairs.
Our hotel was located on Fornillo Beach about a five-minute walk from the main beach and port. It was a lot quieter over here especially because the ferries can’t dock here. You can rent beach chairs for the day and get drinks and food from the beach club. One thing to note about the beaches here is that they’re rocky and hurt your feet. Even the cool people wear water shoes.
Positano is a colorful paradise.
In town the main beach is called Spiaggia Beach and there’s a mixture of beach clubs and free beach access. I’m not a beach person so we didn’t spend much time over here.
The most popular view of Positano is taken from the sidewalk near the Music on the Rocks disco club. That’s not our scene but if you’re into disco clubs, that’s the place to go.
We couldn’t see the sunset, but twilight was so serene.
Positano at night is equally as beautiful.
Jon and I absolutely loved Positano! It was such a beautiful and relaxing place to end our trip. We loved being right on the water and having our balcony to relax on. We also thought the food was very good and not crazy expensive. We were here for five nights and that felt like a good amount of time. I think if we were here longer than a week we’d start to get bored, but if you enjoy relaxing on a beautiful beach then you could stay here forever. I’ve got one final post of our last night in Rome and then this series will be complete. Stay tuned for the final installment.
