A lively town with the larges stretch of sun-drenched sandy beaches on the picturesque Amalfi Coast
A fairly large lively town on the Amalfi Coast with possibly the nicest and largest beach in the region and a good selection of restaurants, shops and bars.
What to do - Dominating the town is the Castle of San Nicola de Thoro-Plano and the adjacent church. The most beautiful sight of Maiori opens towards the headland, the Park of Capo d'Orso. The park covers an area of 3,000 hectares and is unique both from a scenic point of view and for the diversity of animals and plants that inhabit it
Beach - Beyond the headland, towards Salerno, behind the lighthouse of Capo d'Orso, lies Erchie, the longest beach of the Amalfi Coast. In almost a kilometer of sand, between two Saracen watchtowers, every summer some fifteen bathing establishments welcome thousands of tourists.
How to get here - on the main coastal road from Minori on the SS163
Whilst it lacks the unique charm of other villages such as Positano and Ravello, Maiori has its own distinctive character and has a beautiful sea and beach. It is suited to middlemarket visitors looking for a quiet, relaxing break. It also suits families with younger children.
