Amalfi Coast Summer holidays
Spend Summer in Amalfi for sun, sea, sand and Sfogiatella!
HomeAway travel expert
The Amalfi Coast is undoubtedly one of Italy’s most beautiful areas, and although stunning year-round, it’s particularly spectacular come Summer. It’s the clean, sea air, breathtaking beaches and endless walking trails which attract most people, but there’s the delectable cuisine and cultural sites to consider too. All in all, there’s something for everyone in this blissful part of the Mediterranean, not least the balmy temperatures which top the high twenties during the Summer months. Reached by air or by boat, it’s also a convenient destination for those travelling from the United Kingdom; especially for those who might be scared of flying!
We have hundreds of rentals along the Amalfi Coast, so you’ll never be at a loss for your perfect holiday rental. From luxurious villas fit for large families, to cosy cottages with the ideal facilities for couples, we have a vast range of accommodation options open to you. Whether you’re travelling on a budget or looking to splurge, HomeAway Holiday Rentals is your first choice for private holiday accommodation. So why wait? Browse through our selection today, and indulge in a private swimming pool, expansive garden or terrace overlooking the sea. But before that, read on for a rundown of our favourite spots along the Amalfi Coast.
Top five destinations for Amalfi Coast Summer holidays
Long known as a photographer’s dream destination, Positano is fit for any Italian postcard. A resort which welcomes tourists with pink, peach and terracotta villas towered high atop a hill, it’s one of the country’s most sophisticated seafront spots to say the least. Spend the morning wandering around the town’s boutiques and jewellery shops - make sure you wear comfortable shoes, as it’s steep! - before taking a more challenging trail down to the seafront. Strolling along the sheer cliffs of the Salerno coast in the sunshine is unbeatable.

A wonderful seaside town for those of a laid-back disposition, Amalfi is one of the coastline’s most popular resorts during Summer. Once famous for its maritime power, it has a long and fascinating history, but due to an earthquake in 1343, little remains in the way of ancient ruins. That said, there’s the area’s natural beauty to admire, which is best explored along a hiking path such as the ‘Path of the Gods’. If you’re not feeling that active, spend your afternoon on the pebble beach, before eating pizza in the lemon tree-lined piazza.

Considering a Summer holiday for the sunshine? Well, Praiano’s your dream destination. Boasting the longest days in all of Italy, due to its west-facing position, you’ll have more than enough time to sunbathe, swim, sightsee and shop - all in the same day, if you wish. What’s more, Praiano’s a great choice for those looking to extend their stay: with ferries running to Pompeii and Capri, you can learn all about that fateful day when Mount Vesuvius erupted, or simply stroll around the beautiful, lush landscapes of the latter island.

Sitting high above the likes of Amalfi, Ravello is renowned for its impressive panoramic views. What it’s less famed for are the celebrities who’ve long frequented its streets, including bohemian writers such as Virginia Wolff and D.H. Lawrence. Clearly an inspirational destination, Ravello’s ideal for Summer holidays: you can laze along the coast, stroll around its lush, green gardens, or hire a car and tackle the spine-tingling drive up the Valle del Dragone. One thing’s certain: with sunshine and stunning views, you won’t be disappointed.

Conca dei Marini
For those with sea legs, Conca dei Marini is paradise. Every morning, dozens of tourists take to the harbour, renting pedalos, boats and canoes to enjoy a day on the ocean. If you’re in the mood for adventure, a trip to Emerald Grotto can’t be beaten: a cave filled with the most amazingly green water, it’s easily reached on one of the many boat tours available. After you’ve had enough of the sun, retreat to a restaurant for a sweet end to the day: Sfogiatella Santa Rosa, local shell-shaped pastries, are filled with ricotta and black cherry jam.
