Why should you visit the Amalfi Coast at the beginning of the season? To madly fall in love with it.

Overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most renowned Italian sites included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Panoramic terrace suspended between the cobalt blue of the sea, the emerald shades and the green of the Mediterranean scrub, our land attracts travellers from all over the world.

In addition to the sceneries of unique beauty, the Amalfi Coast boasts one of the most varied cultural, artistic and food and wine heritage in Italy. Not to mention the inimitable compendium of traditions, legends and customs. A treasure you can fully appreciate if unveiled with no hurry, slowly and silently, conditions guaranteed by a holiday on the Amalfi Coast at the beginning of the season. Before the loud crowds of tourists gather into the beaches and the cobblestone alleys of the fishing villages, this stretch of coast just resonates of broken waves on the shore, birds in the branches and cheerful voices of the locals … a real delight for the spirit.

Quiet and wonder in Positano

Positano in summer pullulates with vacationers, who fill the squares and narrow shopping streets. In spring, on the other hand, our vertical town, perched on the rock sloping gently towards the sea, is pleasant as never before. The colourful houses shine in the rays of the beginning of the season, the craft shops and the Positano fashion boutiques seduce with alluring shop windows, the fish restaurants kidnap the sense of smell like siren songs.

Folklore and enchanting landscapes intertwine with unmissable monuments, such as the Church of Santa Maria Assunta with the iconic majolica dome. The beaches, still dozing from the just past winter, retain a magical quiet, inexplicable in words but very pleasant to try, under the warm caresses of the sun. Among the most beautiful, we recommend the Spiaggia Grande, at the foot of Positano, and the Spiaggia del Fornillo, a few minutes away from the pier.

Fairy-tale glimpses between land and sea

Visiting the Amalfi Coast at the beginning of the season offers precious opportunities to discover unexpected landscapes, lapped by the sea or surrounded by the most unspoiled nature. Among the most suggestive excursions is the Path of the Gods, running 7 km along the Monti Lattari and offering glimpses of unsuspected wonder, especially in the hamlet of Positano, Nocelle.

Another highly recommended destination for trekking lovers is the Valle delle Ferriere, a very special natural oasis. You can reach it starting from the medieval village of Atrani, then you cross the valley of the Dragone stream till the town of Pontone, which opens onto the nature reserve. Strolling in this fragment of Campania is surprising: a lush tropical flora covers the area, dotted with waterfalls and springs where rare plant species and amphibians coexist. It seems to find yourself into the rainforest, yet you are in the deep heart of the Amalfi Coast … extraordinary, don’t you think?

If you prefer the brackish on the skin, choose one of the exciting boat tours available on our land. From Capri to the maritime republic of Amalfi, from the Blue Grotto to Praiano, until the contemplation of the coast in the light of the stars: book a boat excursion at the Hotel Le Agavi in ​​Positano.

If you love diving into the clear blue, swim off Punta Campanella, a panoramic promontory from where you can admire the Gulf of Salerno and the Gulf of Naples merging into each other. In your eyes, the profile of the island of Capri will open up, unpredictable and exciting, cradled by a mirror of water bathed in light.

Visiting the Amalfi Coast at the beginning of the season guarantees very strong emotions and continuous discoveries: enjoy them all with a stay at the 5-star Hotel Le Agavi in ​​Positano.
