Although the Amalfi Coast is a favorite seaside holiday destination, this part of the Italian coastline has very few beaches.

Don't expect to spend your time walking on long stretches of soft sand: on the Amalfi Coast, what is called a beach is often little more than a patch of pebbles or a rocky platform lying beneath the cliffs.

The majority of the area's towns are situated high above sea level and to reach the waters edge, holidaymakers will often have to make their way down long flights of steps or impervious coastal paths.

The reward for their efforts are some of the world's most enchanting bays, lapped by wonderfully warm, crystal clear waters.
Those holidaymakers who decide to rent a boat, will be able to reach otherwise inaccessible coves of the Amalfi Coast, and enjoy a little corner of paradise all to themselves, for hours.

A tip: try to get up early. The sun leaves almost all of the Amalfi Coast's beaches in the early afternoon, and for maximum hours of sunshine, you'll need to have breakfast on the beach!

Beaches of Nerano

The first beach on the Amalfi Coast is Nerano, the coastal district of Sant'Agata. Here you can enjoy crystal clear waters and sun until dusk and, if you're really lucky, you might even meet a mermaid.
