This little gem remains ever-popular with travelers from the world over, resulting in overcrowding during the peak season, which is to say, summertime. What’s more, traveling to the Amalfi Coast during this time of year will likely also have other downsides, most notably steep prices. Therefore, the advice we gave you earlier about choosing other times of the year to enjoy this Mediterranean region, including the gorgeous town of Positano, wasn’t bred by theory (we’ve been burned before).
And speaking of experience, you absolutely have to check out Spiaggia di Laurito. Here’s why: all that stuff you heard about the “breathtaking beaches” of Positano – forget about it. They’re always packed, tiny and overall unattractive due to the fact that the coastline is generally rocky and steep. Yet, all is not lost; just 2 miles from the town center is the picturesque Spiaggia di Laurito beach. Actually, it’s more of a cove – though the beach itself is still rocky and somewhat tiny – but it’s not without its upsides. These include being comparably less crowded than other town beaches, with the addition of being extremely well protected (and therefore, often unheard of). Just make sure to have plenty of storage on your camera or smartphone for all those selfies and romantic sunsets.
