If you are going to visit the Amalfi Coast you have to explore, well… the coast. There is a reason that they call it the Amalfi coast. Check out the coast for god sakes.
We decided to rent a boat and explore the Amalfi coastline by ourselves. We figured this would allow us the option to explore the grottos and beaches that can only be visited by renting a boat.
Amalfi (the town) and Positano have several kiosks at their ports where you can rent a boat. Stop at several and do some price comparisons. We didn’t go with anything high speed or fancy just an old fashioned wooden boat with a motor. It wasn’t like Hawaii Five-O it was more like Castaway but I digress. Who cares anyway with these views!
The rules of boating on the Amalfi Coast are that you should stay about 100 meters from the coast (especially if the police are out and about). We were diligent in following the rules to a tee though. The beauty of renting a boat is you see somewhere you want to stop and you just toss the anchor and go. It gives you a lot of freedom and this was the best thing we did on our trip.
Below are pictures from exploring the coastline. Absolutely magnificent.
