Things to do in Amalfi
Away from the usual frills of the beach, the Emerald Grotto sits a little further down the coast. This wonderful cave with stalactites will give you the perfect opportunity to explore and do something a little different. The water shimmers in the cave and produces a spectacular array of colours and shapes – a tour may be taken of the cave from Amalfi’s Pennello quay.
At the Piazza Duomo you’ll find Amalfi’s cathedral, Duomo di Sant'Andrea Apostolo, known all over Italy. When you see the sheer size of it, it’s obvious why. A monumental complex made up of the cathedral, a bell tower, cloisters and a crypt, and one of the most photographed sights around Amalfi. Inside the complex are a number of points of interest which perfectly highlight the Romanesque-Amalfitan architecture. Among them are the stunning Cloisters of Paradise, the cathedral itself and a museum detailing the region’s rich history.
A walk out of town, past the area’s famous lemon groves, to the Valle delle Ferriere nature reserve will reward you with an unspoilt landscape of waterfalls, rocky ridges and rare plants.
There are a number of beaches in and around Amalfi, and they’re all relatively easy to get to, whether by public transport or by simply taking a leisurely stroll from town down to the seaside.
The Amalfi region’s popular pebble beaches can be found in the scenic coves along the coast, overlooked by the towns which hug the spectacular rocky cliffs. The small, but perfectly formed, beaches of Castiglione, Atrani, Marina Grande and Duoglio are all nearby.
Central to Amalfi town, Marina Grande is probably the biggest and most popular of the beaches. Escape the crowds and head to Ravello’s idyllic Castiglione beach, a little-known gem a little further along the coast. Duoglio Beach, just a short bus or boat ride from Amalfi, is perfect for watersports lovers, with a choice of windsurfing, scuba diving, canoeing and kayaking. Those feeling adventurous can take the scenic route by walking 400 steps down to the beach, or turn up in true Amalfi style by boat and step straight out onto the beach.
