Overview of Positano


Thanks to its mild climate all year round and its incredible breathtaking scenery, Positano is considered the perfect destination for beach holidays since the time of the Roman Empire. This ancient seaside village develops almost vertically, with the old colored houses resting on each other halfway between sky and waves, in one of the most magical stretches of coastline of the Sorrento peninsula. Sailing a boat in Sorrento's coast is on the bucket list of all sailors. Being on the Amalfi Coast, you have access to some of the most historic cities in Italy. For example, take your chartered boat to Naples where you'll be able to see amazing scenery and sample some of the iconic cuisine. 


Positano was built on the steep slopes typical of the Amalfi Coast, along that wonderful Tyrrhenian coast where there is no break between the green of the hills and the deep blue of the sea. This is the city of stairs, long series of steep and winding steps, so tiring to walk uphill as spectacular when unannounced overlooking the sea. The two famous beaches of the village, Marina Grande and Spiaggia di Fornillo, are the ideal place to spend your days taking in the sun. Walk along the lively streets of the old town renowned for its shops and shopping, tastea the typical lemon sweets and indulge in the dolce vita. In Positano, boat parties and fun are never lacking. On the other side of Sorrento, be sure to also stop at Salerno. Salerno, like the rest of the Amalfi, has some of the most amazing views when it comes to sailing. Take your rented yacht to Salerno and experience the views. 


But the real beauty of this enchanting place is the sea, the ideal playground for every lover of boating. You can whizz off on a motorboat, explore the small coastal coves with the perfect sailboat or even let yourself go to the wildest luxury on board the most exclusive of yachts.
