Fodor's Review

The walkway from the Piazza Flavio Gioia leads down to the Spiaggia Grande, or main beach, bordered by an esplanade and some of Positano's best restaurants. Surrounded by the spectacular amphitheater of houses and villas that leapfrog up the hillsides of Monte Commune and Monte Sant'Angelo, this remains one of the most picturesque beaches in the world. Although it faces stiff competition from Spiaggia di Fornillo beach, which is a far bigger and whiter strand of sand, the Spiaggia Grande wins the beauty contest hands down. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; swimming.
