Where to go on the beach in Positano
In a place viewing the sea, I could not recommend the beaches. Each of them has a peculiarity that makes it unique and different from the others. The Grande beach is the most famous and crowded, as well as the place of the miracle told before, on the one hand, we have a view of the Li Galli islets, also known as Sirenuse, where according to legend, the sirens who enchanted Ulysses and his crew took refuge on the other the view of the historic centre of Positano with its colourful houses according to the typical coastal tradition. Also, there is the Fornillo beach, more sheltered, but with unique beauty. Here you can also visit one of the watchtowers, the Saracen tower of Fornillo, built in the period of the maritime republics, to protect themselves from enemies, rebuilt in the early twentieth century.
Among the other beaches, there is: Arienzo, reachable by sea and therefore much more intimate and suggestive because it is obtained from an inlet. While the other towers included those of Sponda, the oldest and cylindrical in shape,and Trasita.
The path of the gods: from the Amalfi coast to the Sorrento coast
One of the most common practices in recent years on the coast is that of trekking. Among the most famous paths for trekking, there is certainly the path of the gods. A path that takes you from Agerola to Positano through places uncontaminated by man where myth and reality mix repeatedly.
Along the path there are many places to visit and the path takes us straight to Positano and its 1700 steps that overlook a breathtaking view of the sea, Capri and Li Galli.
