Positano is all about relaxing on the beach, eating tasty food, and exploring the historic seaside town. There’s really no set agenda, but here are some tips for you babeskillets to truly live your best Positano life…
Getting there: If you’re not staying right in Positano (which is often the case as there’s quieter areas with better hotel deals in nearby towns like Praiano), take a local bus into town (very easy, mainly full of tourists, and they come super often). Driving on cliffside windy roads, let alone parking, are difficult here…so leave the rental at the hotel and bus into town so that you freely sip wino haha. If you’re staying quite far from Positano, then the ferries are the way to go – they go in between the major towns super frequently.
How much time: I think you don’t need more than a day or two here…there’s so many cool areas along the coast to see! If you’re on the mega relaxing program though, stay as long as you want haha.
Boating: Definitely go for a boat ride. Check out my post here all about how to do it the dope way.
Beaching: DUH! It’s a must. You can rent an umbrella and lounger if that’s your jam, or just post up on a towel in the sand. We opted for the latter. There’s lots of little stands that sells drinks to sip on while you beach, too. I highly recommend a Corona…quite the majestic place for a beer. All in all, definitely beach it up on the main beach while you’re here – it’s always a little crowded, but the views and atmosphere are epic.
Food: There’s delicious food everywhere…the mix of pasta and seafood is so good. During the day, if you want a view and to feel fancy, check out Le Sirenuse (a picturesque hotel with a few restaurants). We did lunch there which you can read all about here. For dinner, we strolled around and just picked spots at random (they all look dope). An extra tasty one was La Cambusa, close the beach. You can stroll up into the town on the hill, as well…every corner has restaurants to drool over.
Sights: The views are the main dealio here, but there is a gorgeous church right in the center with a huge colorful dome. Very cool to see from the outside and the inside, it dates back to the 10th century! I love old stuff haha.
There you have it babeskillets. You’re now ready to Positano like a pro. We where there in early October which was perfect – the weather was great and it wasn’t very busy. Happy travels babeskillets, Tita xx
