Positano Money-Saving Tips

Small beaches

For your own private slice of beach in crowded Positano, hire a chair and an umbrella ($22) in one of the fenced-off areas on either Spiaggia Grande or Fornillo beach.

Say cheese

Yes, the seafood is extremely fresh and worth trying, but don’t overlook the cheeses of the coastal Lattari mountains – they are equally mouth-watering!

Boat over

For a lasting impression of this adorable port, arrive by boat. From Naples, go to Beverello Harbour a few steps from Piazza Municipio, or Mergellina harbour to catch on of the hydrofoils that depart regularly.

Emerald glow

For the best light in the glowing emerald Grotto dello Smeraldo, plan to visit at 3pm.


Restaurants usually add 10-15% service to your bill, so don’t feel obliged to leave more unless, of course, you’re particularly pleased with your service.
