This is a relatively small but picturesque beach with some very good restaurants surrounding it. Great people watching and a great way to relax. The Mediterranean is a beautiful place to be - I have a morning time pic of this beach as the wall...More

This is THE beach in Positano to be with the crowds and hustle and bustle. It has lounges and umbrellas to hire. The large stoney beach is crowded and busy with fun people.

Compared to many other beachs around the world, this beach is just reasonable and doesn't have anything special. In Positano, I'd prefer Il Fornillo Beach, that's just 15 minutes walk west from the docks.

The beach is run as a 'beach club' meaning you check in at the covered kiosk and pay. At 20 euros per chair we found it pricy just to secure a lounger. We swam in the ocean there and it's really something to swim out...More

In this small beach we can find some boats and a place to rest and bathing in the cold waters of the tirrenian sea. From the grey and thick sand, we have one of the best views of the city.

Visit Spiaggia Grande, rent a boat here, maybe enjoy a cafe or restaurant, but don't even bother swimming here. Walk 500m north and swim at Spiaggia Fornillo.

A beautiful scene, black volcanic pebble beach with the picturesque town of Positano in the background. Every view, every turn is like looking at a postcard.

The entire Amalfi Coast isn't about beaches, but about stunning scenery, landscapes, hidden places, towns cut into the mountains. In that way don't take this beach as a place where you'll spend a whole day for several reasons. It's very overcrowded, despite its name Grande,...More

This is the beautiful beach of Positano with the hotels cut right into the mountain. It is breathtaking.

The above person is correct. There is a podium that has 2 persons there to check you in. I believe that its 8 euro per person for a chair. Bring your towel from your hotel and you're set. It's worth it!
