Sheltered by rocky, brush-covered mountains curving into the sea, Fornillo offers the chance to escape nearby Positano's crowds. You can drive from the scenic Amalfi Coast road. Or, from Positano, you can walk ten minutes from the ferry dock to this quiet beach, where you can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas inexpensively. A few restaurants offer pizza and other snacks. Our Positano trip planner makes visiting Fornillo and other Positano attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
