Sicily or Puglia for 9 days

Hi all-- I'm trying to plan a trip for early September for my husband and me. We will by flying from NYC and will have about 8 or 9 nights in Italy. We just are not sure where to go! We'd like some beaches, culture in terms of old villages and lively restaurants, and outdoor adventure, but don't care so much for historical sites and museums. We really want somewhere we can relax, take in beautiful scenery, maybe do some hiking, and wander around the towns. I was thinking of either Eastern Sicily or Puglia. A friend went to Puglia and loved the culture of it, but it doesn't seem to be that beautiful in terms of the natural scenery. I love the look of the Amalfi Coast, but just don't want to deal with the tourists and the inflated prices. Any thoughts/advice on which place to pick or favorite spots in those regions would be great. Thanks so much!
