Sheltered by rocky, brush-covered mountains curving into the sea, Fornillo offers the chance to escape nearby Positano's crowds. You can drive from the scenic Amalfi Coast road. Or, from Positano, you can walk ten minutes from the ferry dock to this quiet beach, where you can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas inexpensively. A few restaurants offer pizza and other snacks. Our Positano trip planner makes visiting Fornillo and other Positano attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Just a 10-15 minute easy hike from the main Positano beach, this beach is less crowded by people and ships. Because of that, the water is clearer. There are still small beach clubs offering beach...

Best place to visit and enjoy the view. Be careful though there are a lot of stairs. Your trip must be planned well. I suggest you come down the stairs to this beach and then take the small connecting bridge between it and the other grand beach and then from the grand beach take the road up. As you can easily get stuck doing 300 stairs plus! Oh and be careful it’s full of rocks and pebbles. Fantastic beach though super chill amazing vibes.
I thought this little beach was Just beautiful compared to the main one in Positano. Our hotel arranged with one of the restaurants on the beach to reserve sunbeds and umbrellas. We got four sun beds and two umbrellas for 100 euro on August. Incredibly expensive but definitely worth it because that sun is hot! There are two ways to get here. One is to walk and involves a lot of steps. The other, is to take the boat that is offered from one of the restaurants that gives you the same beds. They take you there you pay for the sunbeds keep them all day and then they bring you back. They have boats frequently going back to Positano.
