Since we stayed in the hotel above the beach, we were there every day. It is not a sandy beach, it is a rocky beach. Yes, for non locals it is impossible to walk around without swimming shoes. That being said, since those shoes make...More

Beautiful little beach cove. It's only a small area for swimming but it felt big enough for us and our toddler. It's an all rock/stone beach and most of the area is taken up with rental sun beds but it's so lovely and relaxing. It...More

We stayed in Praiano for our summer family vacation in August 2018. You need to go to this marina for the departure of all the boat tours from Praiano. We were there 2 times. It is located in a very steep area. I would not...More

This is a lovely enough little place, as Italian beaches go. It is a local beach, so fills up quickly with families—it was packed by the time we got there at around 10am. It is also a local marina, so there are also lots of...More

We decided to visit this beach rather than making a trip to positano to avoid all the tourist crowds. For $21 euros we were able to have 2 chairs and an umbrella. The beach is very rocky so wear flip flops that you don't mind...More

We chose to bathe on the sunbeds by le Pirata restaurant as you could jump in the sea from the rocks and swim around. There is a shower to get rid of the salty water (10 euros per bed). Warning - the sun has gone...More

Hire of beds and umberellas are expensive (no towels provided). Stoney beach so quite uncomfortable (no sand). Taxi and car park area is a racket - taxis are extortionate and men are intimidating when you question it - felt very unsafe.

Water Taxis are too expensive from here. They set the price High because there’s only one family/company that monopolizes this marina. Other marinas have a few competitive companies that will negotiate with you. Also, at this marina you have to wait and schedule a water...More
