Via Laurito 40
To most U.S. travelers, especially those familiar with the Pacific and Atlantic coastlines, what qualifies as a beach along the Amalfi Coast is laughable. With its teeny patch of black sand, Laurito Beach, near the San Pietro, is no exception. But locals and longtime aficionados alike come here for classic Da Adolfo, an uber-casual seaside restaurant that opened in the 1960s. Reservations are a must. Guests from Positano can arrive via a short boat transfer, providing gorgeous views, but be aware that their free shuttle back doesn’t commence until 4 p.m. Since there is not much to do at Laurito, it’s best to hire your own shuttle back to Positano after lunch.
