Beach
“Deemed an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape by Unesco, the Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's most memorable destinations. Here, mountains plunge into the sea in a nail-biting vertical scene of precipitous crags, cliff-clinging abodes and verdant woodland.”

“When you'll come on the Amalfi Coast you’ll be spoiled for choice: in addition to the most famous and well-known places, you can visit the villages outside of the usual tours, fishing villages, natural wonders such as marine grottos, small beaches (some of them are reachable only by sea) and solitary coves. And what’s better than a boat trip? Imagine swimming in crystal clear waters, discovering and exploring inlets and enjoying the sun and the gentle sea breeze while sipping a drink and crunching snacks… Imagine having a delicious meal in a characteristic restaurant where fish dishes are served, daily fresh fish caught by local fishermen. Your dreams will come true! And don’t even worry about setting it up… I got this!!! Salvatore’s boat is for max. 6 guests cruising on board and tours will start from May 15th. This experience along the “Divina Costa” will make your holidays stunning and unforgettable.”
