Travel Guide: Amalfi Coast

Wednesday, April 3, 2019

If you're planning a vacation to Italy, the Amalfi Coast is a must-visit. It is made up of a cluster of towns lining the Sorrentine Peninsula on the Tyrrhenian Sea. These towns can be difficult to traverse, known for the steep cliffs and winding hillside roads, but the beaches and views that await are not to be missed! Some popular towns along the coast include Amalfi (the town), Positano, and Ravello. I stayed in Vietri Sul Mare, near Salerno at Lloyd's Baia Hotel. You can read my blog post reviewing this amazing resort here.

The Amalfi Coast is a celebration of European beach club culture, inviting you to relax, rent a sunbed, have an Aperol spritz, and a pizza (all of which I partook in). One of the things I love most about traveling to Europe is the ability to go to the beach and slow down. I like to have my towel and chair waiting for me with waiter service for refreshments. This is the perfect place to wind down after a trip filled with sightseeing and tours.

The Amalfi Coast's sparkling, clear blue water is enchanting and calm. Once at the beach, the cliffs above boast buildings both new and old, each with their own elements of Italian panache. My favorite way to relax in the sea is just to float and look up at the gorgeous sky. Mind you, I'm a Southern California native and the sea here is very different- cold and tumultuous with crashing waves- so when I get to the Mediterranean, I take full advantage of the warm water and gentle current.

My advice to best enjoy the Amalfi Coast is to book a suite and leisurely explore while taking some time for rest and relaxation (and champagne, if you like).

If you're planning a honeymoon or vacation to wind down, the Amalfi Coast is an ideal destination.
