Baia di Ieranto, Baia di Ieranto's insider take:

The Amalfi Coast is so rocky that there's little space for beaches. A magnificent exception is the Baia di Ieranto, a scenic hiccup in the coast just before its westernmost point, Punta Campanella. Accessible only by foot from the village of Nerano (in 40 minutes) or by boat from Marina di Cantone, the deserted beach here is as far as you can get from the Positano flimflam. Today, the whole bay is a nature reserve administered by the Italian heritage conservation society FAI. Entrance is free; guided tours can be arranged by calling (39-335-841-0253). There are no facilities, but bars and alimentary (grocery stores) in either of the departure points can provide picnic fare.—Lee Marshall
