Located at the base of Positano’s valley, the coarse sand feels surprisingly soft underfoot, and works as an extremely effective exfoliant. A day at the beach here at Positano will be extremely well received. Simply kick back, relax in the sunshine and enjoy the sound of the waves gently lapping at the shoe, as you take in the stunning white, peach, and pink houses dominating the backdrop.

Revel in the stunning local cuisine – The food in Italy is exceptional as it is. The food on the Amalfi Coast, however, is in a league entirely of its own. It is truly wonderful, and you need to experience it before you head home. Needless to say, the seafood is the tastiest and freshest you will ever likely have experienced. And with the warm sunshine and mineral-enriched soil helping to grow and ripen amazing ingredients such as fresh tomatoes, it’s easy to understand why the food here is so wonderful. Whether you enjoy a freshly made seafood linguine, or a wood-fired stone baked margarita pizza, just be sure to sample as many of the local delicacies as your time here will allow for. You could even make a day of it and embark on a Positano home-cooking experience, whereby you’ll be taught how to produce authentic local dishes by a professional, before finishing the experience with a 3-course meal. Delicious.
Embark on the Walk of the Gods – If you find that you’ve perhaps enjoyed a few too many wines and local delicacies on your vacation, some much-needed exercise will be in order. This is where you might want to look into hiking the Walk of the Gods. This is a famous hiking route located on the Amalfi coast that will take you high over the clifftops through lush countryside and valleys. Located high up in the hills, you will enjoy some of the most spectacular panoramic views of the area, while enjoying some beneficial cardiovascular exercise in the process. Be sure to bring your camera, as the views here are like nothing you’ll ever have experienced before.
