The view from the sea along the Amalfi Coast reveals the dream beaches, often protected by the hidden coves that characterize the Amalfi coast, to the more observant travelers.
Often reachable only by boat, the beaches of the Amalfi Coast are beautiful havens of peace and are loved by locals and tourists who want to live and experience this wonderful coast.
The clean water of the Amalfi Coast have for years boasted the famous EU Blue Flag, the internationally acknowledged European certification for environmental quality of seaside resorts, proving the efforts of operators and local institutions to ensure sustainable tourism to protect the environmental sea heritage.
We want to guide you to discover some of the dreamy beaches of Amalfi during your holiday on the Amalfi Coast thus adding joy and wellness for both body and mind. Swimming in crystal clear water surrounded by the nature of the coast without missing the opportunity to discover the historical and cultural heritage of the Amalfi sea.
The first Amalfi Coast dream beach in the ranking of the Hotel Aurora in Amalfi is also the largest among those we suggest. The beach of Santa Croce is located immediately after the very famous Duoglio beach, about 2 km from the town. There is a cave that still contains the remains of a small chapel dedicated to the Holy Cross, used since the Middle Ages as a storage of goods that came by sea. On the beach you will also find two beach resorts with restaurants if you want to take a break for lunch, after diving into the crystal clear waters right under a natural arch of rock. A curiosity: the natural arch we are talking about is famous to be “The Arch of Baci Perugina” where the advertisement dedicated to the famous chocolate of lovers was shot. What better place, therefore, to spend a few romantic hours on the beach, embraced by the heat of the sun, under a cobalt-colored sky, immersed in waters with a thousand emerald shades.
Not far away, following the coastline along the Amalfi Coast, we find Le Marinelle, a small beach that emerges from the rocks, a perfect place for a refreshing swim. At the time of the Dolce Vita, Sofia Loren often took a secret swim in this corner of paradise, located right under her own villa and surrounded by a lush Mediterranean garden, perfect for assuring the privacy that a star requires.
Marina di Conca deserves a very special mention on this list. The Marina di Conca is surrounded by one of the most suggestive bays of the Amalfi coast, with its houses literally clinging to the rocks of the overhanging cliff. Summer and secret homes in the 1950s and 1960s, they hosted the international jet-set on holiday on the Amalfi Coast – Jacqueline Kennedy, the Agnelli Family, Carolina of Monaco – to name just a few. Marina di Conca is the typical fishing village, where you can still taste the catch of the day in the two picturesque restaurants on the beach. The beach can be reached on foot along a very hair raising staircase. For the more sporty and adventurous it is certainly an experience, but remember that the steps will wait for you on your return! Without a doubt, reaching the beach by sea has a charm and comfort not comparable! If you want to opt for a sunset or moonlight bath, accompanied by a dinner away from the crowds, we can only advise you to try the evening experience, taking advantage of the boat transfer service that the owners of the two restaurants offer, on request, from the pier of Amalfi. Then remember our advice: don’t miss the pasta and zucchini alla scapece. You can’t miss this experience!
Sailing along the coast in the direction of Positano, discovering the dream beaches of the Amalfi Coast we find the only fjord in Italy, the Fiord of Furore, one of the most scenic places on the coast, a deep crack in the rocks on which small houses cling dramatically. They were used as storage for goods and boats by fishermen. The Mediterranean vegetation leans over the cliff onto the deep blue water and the waves. It is no coincidence that this place full of beauty and contrasts was chosen as a film set since 1940s and made memorable the performance of Anna Magnani in the 1948 during the shooting of “Amore” directed by Roberto Rossellini. Their passionate and tormented love story linked with the waves crashing onto the rocks of the fjord.
The Fiordo di Furore can also be reached by car or by bus from Amalfi to Positano. We recommend both options because the views from the top of the road to the precipice as well as from the sea are both very special observation points.
By this time, our journey of discovery of the beaches of the Amalfi Coast reaches its final destination. The vertical town Positano, is around the corner. Before arriving, do not miss a stop at Le Praie in Praiano, one of the most beautiful beaches on the coast, surrounded by Mediterranean pine-trees an ideal place for a break and a moment of relax.
Positano is in front of your eyes now. You can see the vertical architecture of the houses, but also the always crowded beach! For that we advise you to sail a few minutes more until you reach the wild beach of Remmese, just in front of the Li Galli Island.
Reachable only by sea, it will give you deep water and crystal blue colours and invite you to a longer stop to enjoy the immaculate nature and the breeze blowing from the land to the sea is able to refresh us all even in the hot summer days.
