Boating the Amalfi Coast

My cousins surprised us with a boat trip along the Amalfi coast, which was an incredible treat!  The boat picked us up at the hotel dock and our first stop was a cave that was filled with bats and water dripping from the walls, it was straight out of an Indiana Jones movie!

There is something special about being on a boat, with the wind whipping your hair, the breeze cooling the heat of the sun and salt water clinging to your skin.  Then add in the views of the Amalfi coast, with cliffs jutting into the cool Tyrrhenian Sea and it becomes even more spectacular.

We ended up taking the boat towards Salerno and found one of many private beaches to swim up to.  Let’s just say it was great for our adrenals, because the water was cold!

Private beach that you can only get to by boat.

The best part of the trip was a last minute decision to take the boat to Positano.  For anyone that dreams of leaving everything and moving to Italy, you know the movie Under the Tuscan Sun.  It is one of my favorites and ever since seeing Positano in the movie, I dreamed of visiting the seaside town.  I never in a million years imagined that I would arrive with my family via a boat!  One of those special moments when you are just amazed at how perfectly things work out in life.

Definitely way more enjoyable and less stressful seeing the Amalfi coast by water, instead of driving!  Thank you for my cousins for the special treat!
