The Best Positano Instagram Spots
Table of Contents
With a photogenic spot in every corner in Positano, coming up with 15 shots was easy! I could go on and on with locations, but these are my ultimate favorite 15 Positano Instagram Spots.
1. The Classic Spiaggia Grande
What is a trip to Positano without this classic shot? The stunning beach and Positano hills await in the background calling for a perfect photo opportunity.
Not sure if you need to purchase beach chairs to roam this part of the roped-off beach, but we sorta suck our way into it and took a few pics. We would have totally bought a beach chair if we had more time to relax, but of course, I was busy making this list 😉
2. Harbor View From Boat Tour In Positano
Getting that Perfect Shot of Positano from a boating perspective is always #Goals. Thankfully, with the help of Blue Star Positano, my dreams were fulfilled! Nothing like seeing the prettiest town from a boat view.
Check out my post here to read more about my boating experience with Bluestar Positano.
3. The Marina
There is only one Marina in Positano. Just behind where the ferries come in is a perfect platform for taking photos! Our photos were taken in the morning so that sun adds in some Drama. Doesn’t the water make you want to jump in!?
4. Beach Changing Rooms
I had to add this one to the list because the changing rooms along the main beach in Positano are so cute! The white and blue stripes add for an amazing backdrop an outfit photo!
5. Francos Bar at Le Sirenuse
If you have seen a Postcard of Positano, it was probably from this viewpoint. Nestled above the Church of Positano you can see the beautiful scenery of this town. Grabbing a seat at Franco’s Bar will ensure an Instagram photo shot.
Be sure to get there early when they open because seats go by quickly along the railing for the best views. If you are unable to get a seat, head over one building inside Le Sirenuse’s Hotel Lobby balcony for the same view!
Go during sunset for a gorgeous hue to your photos.
6. Hotel Poseidon
Another one of my favorite Aperitivo spots with the most stunning views is Hotel Poseidon. Head to the outdoor garden for an Aperol Spritz while you take your photos. The service here is amazing, you really feel comfortable!
I highly recommend stopping by!
7. Fornillo Beach
This quieter beach in Positano has plenty of photo spots, but I particularly love the umbrellas that say ‘Italian summer’. Just note that this is a rock beach so walking barefoot was hilariously painful, but I loved how the photos turned out!
8. Fiordo di Furore
Technically not apart of Positano, but this famous hidden beach along the coast of the Amalfi Coast is totally Insta-worthy. Getting there is somewhat of a small challenge if you don’t have your own car.
You can catch the bus headed to Amalfi and ask the driver to make a stop here, or you could just arrive by boat!
Update 2019: The entrance from the roadside to get down to this beach is currently closed due to falling rocks. I believe the only way you can get inside the Fiordo is by boat.
9. Buca di Bacco
I just love the old-Hollywood charm this mural brings off! Also, Bar Buca Di Bacco downstairs was a place I regularly frequented for coffee, croissants, wine, pizza, you name it!
10. The Deli
The crossroads of two main walking streets Piazza Dei Mulini and Via Cristoforo Colombo in Positano lie the Delicatessen. I love how it’s situated right in the middle.
This shot was hard to get with no one in it since we were taking pictures around 5 PM. So if you want a completely empty shot this one would be easier in the morning.
11. Chez Black & Beach Promenade
Chez Black is a restaurant right on the main beach in Positano. I loved the charm it had, and it felt like a perfect photo opportunity!
If you keep walking along the beach promenade you’ll find pretty spots to shoot like this beach entrance!
12. Cats of Positano
Not necessarily a location, but being a cat lady I had to include my furry friends in this list. Finding a cat in Positano isn’t very hard, if you look closely you’ll see one moving in the distance.
The best part is at night you will hear the sounds of the cats in the hills.
13. Secret Beach in Fornillo
You’ll see a small passageway to a “secret” “hidden beach” right on the Fornillo side in Positano. While I wouldn’t layout here, I would take the opportunity to take some amazing photos!
14. Shops in Positano
Head to the Church in Positano and you’ll find this gorgeous ceramic shop. Be careful, they don’t allow photos to be taken inside the shop.
15. Passageway above Spiaggia Grande
There are amazing views from the passageway from the Spiaggia Grande to the Fornillo side.
