Positano Beach – Hill view

Anytime is great for photos. Sunset will give you beautiful light as well as the glow of the buildings on the hill. Sunrise will ensure soft light and no people in your photos.

Positano Beach – L'Incanto Beach Lounges

When To Go

Early morning for a deserted beach or later in the day to ensure the umbrellas are open.

Instagrammable Moment

Lounging like a European celebrity on the beach lounges or walking through the laneways between the umbrellas.

Why It's The Best Photo Spot In Positano

The beach lounges and beach umbrellas on the Positano beach are some of the most iconic Instagram photos. The colourful umbrellas against the backdrop of the town on the hill are beautiful. If you go early morning you’ll usually have the area to yourself and won’t have to pay to enter the area. They open the umbrellas at around 8:00 am. So if you’re there in Autumn like I was you you’ll get it all to yourself with the umbrellas and still have them open.

This is one of the best photo locations in Positano. You can still get some great photos during the day when there are people there. However, you may be asked to pay. The cost was around twenty-five euros per person.

Flick your hair around, or simply gaze at this incredible view you’ve been lucky enough to visit. You can also get the umbrellas in the background. It’s a cheeky way of getting them in a photo without paying the fee.

Fornillo Beach

When To Go

Early morning if you want no one in your photos (but the umbrellas won’t be up). Late afternoon for a softer light and open umbrellas.

Instagrammable Moment

Twirling amongst the colourful umbrellas

Why It's The Best Photo Spot In Positano

Fornillo Beach is a short walk around the headland from Positano’s main beach. The colourful beach umbrellas are why it’s rated as one of the best photo spots in Positano. The beach is much smaller, and the hill behind it is less photogenic, but it makes up for it with rows of bright umbrellas. Fornillo Beach is usually much quieter than the main beach here, even though it is a short ten-minute walk. Make sure you add this to your Instagrammable spots in Positano list, as well as your places to swim. It’s also cheaper to rent a beach chair here.

The Marina is where the ferries and boat tours pick up and drop off passengers. It’s nothing special until you walk to the edge and look back towards the main town of Positano. From here you can see why you should visit it for some beautiful photos of Positano.
