With the arrival of June, summer is officially upon us! Beaches on the Amalfi Coast fill with bathers from the beginning of the month, boats and yachts buzz along the coastline, and there is a festive summer atmosphere everywhere you look. This is a great month to visit the coast, though you will have to deal with the first of the summer crowds, especially on the weekend.
The Weather in June
June afternoons heat up, though generally not as oppressively as later in the summer and you can still get a bit of rain at the beginning of the month. Go ahead and pack your summer sandals and clothing, bathing suit, and perhaps something a little more dressy for the evening!

What to Do on the Amalfi Coast in June
June is the best month of the year for a day on the beach, perhaps ending with a sunset cocktail.
Praiano is the best coastal village for a sunset view...from the village square, the view stretches to the Faraglioni off the coast of Capri.
Days are longer in June, and the sunset can be as late at 9 pm. Nightlife is pushed later into the evening, with dinner after sunset and then cocktails or an evening stroll through town at midnight. That said, don't expect to dance til dawn: the Amalfi Coast is more geared toward couples having late romantic dinners and a nightcap than rocking the night away at the club. There are only two discos: Music on the Rocks in Positano on the Spiaggia Grande beach, and Africana in Praiano, set inside a sea cave long the water.
