My family spent the day at the beach. It was 25 Euro for two chairs, an umbrella and towels to be in the front row of this beach. It is all rocks so you need shoes or flip flops to protect your feet. Once we...More

Ate here last night. Very simple but beatifully presented and good portions. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff with good service. Positano always very expensive but Formillo is (for Positano) good vfm.

Smaller, picturesque and less crowded than the main beach, but an easy walk into town. Some good restaurants in Fornillo itself meant we didn't have to go into to town or book in advance. Stayed at Hotel Dimora Fornillo...would stay again in a heartbeat!!

The smaller of Positano’s beaches, reached by a pretty walk and judging by Italian custom and beach etiquette, a good choice and this time of year. Loved the views, enjoyed the swimming and hospitality.

Not as crowded as the main beach. Couple of casual restaurants and shower and toilet facilities. Short walk from Positano. Our choice when in Positano.

Less crowded, better value, great fresh salads at Pepetto - definitely worth the wander over from the main beach in so many ways. Agree it’s a bit pebbly and harder getting in and out but water shoes do the trick

Visited here for the day to relax and chill out, and it was really good. Paid 20 euros for two sunloungers and an umbrella a few rows back from the shore. It's a very pebbly beach. Not too crowded at all. The sea was wonderful...More

Yes, there are a couple of bars and restaurants suitable for brunch or lunch... not so much for a fancy dinner.
