​The crystal clear azure water of the beach mark it out as one of the most prized along the whole coast-line with photographers and sunbathers alike finding equal joy in its attributes. Located around a kilometre west of the town of Amalfi, the climb down the 400 or so steps from the main road is well worth the effort. However, as is the case with many beaches along the Amalfi Coast, it’s best to visit in the mornings in order to make the most of the sunshine which disappears behind the rocks in the afternoons.

Furore is a town and comune in the province of Salerno in the Campania region of south-western Italy. It’s famous mainly because of the Fjord – a small crack in the rocks, an ancient gorge that was a hidden place for the bandits in the past. The fjord of Furore is located in the stretch of coast that follows the SS163 state road, between the municipalities of Praiano and Conca dei Marini. The Grotta dello Smeraldo is only few kilometres away from the fjord, Sorrento about 25 kilometres and Positano only ten.
