20 most beautiful and instagrammable places – Amalfi Coast
Amalfi Coast is one of the most picturesque places in the world. Coastal hill towns, colorful fishing villages and lemon groves entice you at every corner of the coast. With so many beautiful places to see, Amalfi Coast can however, be a little confusing to plan if you are visiting for the first time. All the logistics like where to stay, when to visit and what to do are covered in my 3 day itinerary to the Amalfi Coast blogpost.
It is hard for anyone to visit Amalfi Coast and not fall in love with it. If you are looking for the most surreal places and best photo spots in the world, you have to visit Amalfi Coast. I know how important pretty photos are for most of us. 😉 So I created this list of 20 most beautiful and Instagrammable places in Amalfi Coast. The list includes but not limited to pretty beaches overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea, most picturesque coastal views, aqua blue and emerald green waters and gorgeous sunset views!

Visiting the Amalfi Coast is a once in a life time experience and you probably will not find such breathtaking views anywhere else. Hence, I highly recommend getting a good camera or doing a photo shoot with a professional photographer in Amalfi Coast.
20 Most Beautiful And Instagrammable places in Amalfi Coast
Positano is THE MOST popular village in Amalfi Coast and deservedly so. The cliffside homes so delicately stacked on top of each other, the cathedral, the beach of Positano – all make it one of the most photographed places in Amalfi Coast. No wonder it is so popular and bustling with tourists. Here are some of the most instagrammable spots in Positano.
A must visit beach for spectacular views of the commune of Positano. Try to go early if you would like to enjoy the views for yourself! 🙂
The church of Santa Maria Assunta
It is hard to miss this beautiful church as you walk up and down the stairs in Positano. But many people just see it from the outside. It is not only beautiful outside but inside as well. Be sure to pay a visit!
Le Sirenuse & Franco’s Bar
For the most perfect views of Positano and beautiful sunset over the cliffside homes, visit Le Sirenuse or stop by for a drink at Franco’s Bar at Le Sirenuse.
Da Adolfo Restaurant
A boat ride to get there, a private beach with turquoise water and scrumptious seafood dishes make Da Adolfo a perfect spot in Positano. Check it out for beautiful photos of the private beach and some great food photos as well.
Salvatore’s Fruit Stand

One of the many warm encounters we’ve had with Italian locals. His name is Salvatore and his fruit stand is ideally located at a vista point serving the best pomegranate juice and other options. A must stop if you visit Amalfi Coast. . He is also the sweetest person we’ve met in Positano. He gave me flowers, took some pictures of me and his fruit stand on my phone and made my husband propose to me again 😃 – all because we bought some juice and gave him a generous tip. If you do stop by, don’t forget to say hello and make a conversation!
Salvatore’s fruit stand is at a vista point just north of Positano. It is a must stop for fresh juice and also some great pictures. The owner Salvatore is kind and lets people take pictures of his fruit stand. Don’t forget to tip him. 🙂
La Tagliata Restaurant, Montepertuso
This is another restaurant with breathtaking sunset views of Positano and the coast. Be sure to reserve a table during sunset.
Town of Amalfi
Amalfi is a beautiful town that is often overlooked for Positano or Capri. In my opinion, there are many beautiful spots in Amalfi that it make it a worthwhile stop for your photo opp.
Piazza del Duomo and Amalfi Cathedral
The Cathedral of Amalfi in the Piazza del Duomo is the crown jewel of Amalfi. The cathedral’s stairs, its bell tower and the interiors are an artwork and are a perfect backdrop for the ‘gram!
Right across from the Piazza del Duomo is Marina Coppola. It is one of the most beautiful marinas with blue green water. The marina overlooking the hills is a perfect location for photos.
Ravello is a town north of Amalfi Coast located high above the sea with terraced hills, gorgeous gardens and villas. The neatly sculpted gardens overlooking the sea are something you probably won’t find anywhere else! Ravello is a gem in Amalfi Coast and that’s saying something!
Villa Cimbrone is the crown jewel of Ravello. The accompanying Terrazzo dell’lnfinito (Terrace of Infinity) garden is undoubtedly the most beautiful spot in Ravello. The garden is filled with sculptures with sea view and is one of the most Instagrammable places in Amalfi Coast. Did you know a scene in Wonder Woman, the movie was filmed at Villa Cimbrone? Next time you watch the movie, pay attention! 🙂
There is no shortage of villas in Ravello. Villa Rufolo is yet another villa with terraced infinity gardens that makes you wonder if it is indeed real. The restaurant at Villa Rufolo is also an amazing place to dine and take photos.
Capri is an island off the coast and a 45-60min boat ride from Amalfi Coast. It is one of the prettiest places on earth and a must visit for anyone. Every home in Capri is adorned with bougainvilleas and florals and every street is worthy of a photo. If heaven exists, I believe it sure would look like Capri. Some of my favorite spots in Capri are below.
Grotto Azul (Blue Grotto)
If you want to photograph the most beautiful aqua colored water, take a tour of Blue Grotto. It takes a bit of planning but so worth it.
Capri Boat Tour
A boat tour of Capri takes you around the island and you also get to enjoy some gorgeous view of Capri along with stunning photos.
Anacapri (meaning above Capri) is a commune within the island of Capri but high above the sea. Its high elevation means more breathtaking views of Capri. Be sure to check out Montesolaro, a mountain in Anacapri for even better pictures.

I mean, how romantic and pretty is this! Dining under lemon groves with ocean views is an other worldly experience and a great photo opportunity!
Hotel Caesar Augustus
As you can tell, this hotel is one of my favorite places to enjoy views of Capri and snap some photos. Hotel Caesar Augustus and the accompanying restaurant are full of breathtaking views and amazing food!
Conca dei Marini and Praiano
Conca dei Marini and Praiano are popular among locals but not many tourists stop by. These two communes are located between Positano and Amalfi and I recommend making a quick stop at one of the spots below.

The cave consists only of a single huge chamber. The lake inside is 45m by 32m big and the chamber is 24m high, above the sea level. There are some speleothems, as this is actually a karst cave. The cave was formed above the sea level, at a time when the sea was much deeper. Later the sea rose and flooded the entrance, or better the land went down, which is caused by the volcanic activities in the area. Some stalagmites on the floor were flooded. The tour is not very expensive but the cave is very small and the whole visit takes only half an hour including stairs, cave, and boat ride. It is also essential to visit it at the right time. August is generally bad, because of the huge number of visitors, and we guess it's annoying to wait a long time for a rather abbreviated tour. ⠀⠀❤️Follow ✔️ 🌴 @turquoisejourneys 👙 😎 @turquoisejourneys 🍹 🏖️ @turquoisejourneys 🏄 for more luxury travel inspiration. #turquoisejourneys⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #positanocoast #positanoitaly #positanowedding #positanobeach #positanophototour #positanostyle #positanolove #positanophotographer #positanovibes #positanonews #positanoinlove #positanoboats #positanosummer #amalficoast #grottadellosmeraldo #grottadelbuemarino
The emerald grotto in Conca dei Marini is often ignored for the blue grotto of Capri. While the blue grotto is definitely unique in its own way, emerald grotto is also worth a visit. Let’s be honest, where else can one find emerald green water?
Have you ever seen photos of Instagrammers posing with beautiful ceramics in the background? Yes, those photos are from the Amalfi Coast as well. Amalfi Coast is famous for colorful ceramics and the ceramics act as a perfect prop for Instagram photos! Piccadilly Ceramics in Conca dei Marini has a variety of colorful ceramics in the world for you to snap photos.
Fiordo di Furore
The fishing village of Furore is a must visit in Amalfi Coast for the most beautiful Insta photos of the Fjord. Look at these photos and decide for yourself!
Path Of The Gods Hike
If you are not in a rush and want to take hundreds of pictures of the coast, hike the path of the gods trail. It is a breathtaking hike that takes you along so several communes with so many amazing views of the coast. We missed it and I regret it to this day!
That concludes my list of 20 most beautiful places and Instagrammable spots in Amalfi Coast. If you think I missed something, let me know in the comments below!
