Top attractions

With the Neapolitan Riviera taking in so many different towns and villages, there's plenty of choice when it comes to the best of the best places to visit. One place that should not be missed has to be Pompeii. This fairly nondescript town near Naples is actually of huge historic and architectural importance – it is here that the volcano Vesuvius erupted, coating the entire town in lava and hot ashes, freezing it in time. It is still possible to visit the site of this infamous natural disaster and it is certainly recommended that you do.

Another attraction that must not be missed is the Duomo in Amalfi. It’s an inexpensive trip too, but one that will stay with you for many years to come. You’ll see the ‘Cloister of Paradise’ where the noblemen of the area were buried, and there is also the stunning Byzantine mosaic, as well as a number of lovely frescoes. And this is also where the bones of St Andrew – Jesus’ first disciple – are said to be kept.

Best beaches on the Neapolitan Riviera

Best beaches on the Neapolitan Riviera

It could be said that the Neapolitan Riviera is entirely made up of beaches, beaches that run back to back along the full length of the coast. And that is true. However, there are some beaches that are more popular than others, and these may be the ones that you choose to visit first as you wind your way along the Italian roadways.

The first is Arienzo Beach in Positano. This could well be one of the prettiest of all the beaches along the Neapolitan Riviera and is ideal for relaxing on for hours at a time, especially since Arienzo faces in a southwesterly direction, and therefore gets the sun all day long. Why not take a stroll along this lovely stretch of sand and try to take in as much of the scenery as you can? It’s a challenge that everyone can afford to take on, and enjoying a glimpse at the impressive villas that line the shore is always a treat.

Citara Beach is exactly the kind of beach you would imagine when thinking of a traditional, family friendly, bucket and spade kind of place. It can be found on the island of Ischia, which is situated in the Bay of Naples. The sand is soft and velvety, an inviting brown colour that is more honey than golden. Although it is very popular, it never feels too crowded due to its size. As a bit of a bonus feature, the Poseidon Thermal Gardens are just next door, and you can go there to take a dip in a pool warmed by volcanic hot springs.

Next is Acciaroli in Cilento. This was Ernest Hemingway’s particular favourite beach in the area, and the enormous stretch of pale sand leading down to the crystal clear sea almost seems unreal – but it is there to be enjoyed. Somehow, despite its beauty and its literary connections, Acciaroli is one of the least visited beaches along the Neapolitan Riviera, so if you prefer to steer clear of crowds, this one’s for you.

Then there is Furore Beach, which can be found halfway between Positano and Amalfi. Italy has very few fjords, and Furore was created within one. This means that it is unique, and also rather narrow (just 25 metres wide). Because it is so unusual, it can get busy, and with so little room to move it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you get there early and are prepared to share your space with a variety of friendly locals and visitors, you’ll have a wonderful time there.

The last beach that deserves a special mention is Duoglio Beach in Amalfi. It’s small but it’s close to the town, so it’s perfectly accessible should you not have a vehicle. Well, ‘perfectly accessible’ may not be entirely accurate – anyone who does want to visit does need to climb down (and up again) 400 steps to get there. But it is well worth it. If you have sea legs then you may wish to climb on board one of the regular boats from Amalfi that will also bring you out to Duoglio, where you will see many divers preparing for their next trip.
