Description:

While it may seem unlikely that town of Ravello, located high on a promontory in the mountains, would have a beach, it does actually have one very beautiful beach. The Castiglione Beach is named after the area of Ravello between the seaside towns of Atrani and Minori. It is located just around the corner from Atrani and offers marvelous views of the town's Church of Santa Maria Maddalena. The beach has the same soft black sand that you'll find at the beach in Atrani, and offers a summer Lido where you can rent sun beds, umbrellas and enjoy a beachside lunch. The beach is popular with the locals from Ravello and Scala, especially with the younger crowds who have the energy to climb back up the Normal 0 14 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Tabella normale"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} intimidating staircase at the end of the day.
