Itinerary

Once we have put on our life jackets and adjusted the footrests on our kayaks we will be ready to set off to the west towards the Runghetiello Grotto.

For those who have never been in a kayak there will be a short introductory lesson on how to kayak and safety at sea.

The route will take us along Amalfi’s finest beaches as well as close to natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving us the opportunity to admire the old watch towers that dot the entire length of this coast.

Not too far from the starting point, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, we will kayak by the "Arc of Lovers", a natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea whose shape recalls two elephants in the act of kissing. Up to not too long ago young couples used to get married on the top of it.

A little later we will paddle in front of the ancient fishermen village of Conca dei Marini, passing near the villa of Sophia Loren and seeing the historic hotel “Il Saraceno” located on La Vite Beach.

 

From here we will also have a stunning view of the Santa Rosa Monastery, a former convent now converted into a luxury hotel, once home of the Dominican nuns.
It's right in the kitchens of this monastery that the delicious "
Sfogliatella Santa Rosa" was born, a shell-shaped pastry filled with ricotta cheese-based cream and little dried fruit pieces, typical of the local culinary tradition (don't forget to taste it before leaving!).


Once past the seaside of Conca dei Marini we will enter its western basin, where we will have a beautiful view of Furore and Praiano villages and the islands of Li Galli and Capri, together with the famous Faraglioni Rocks.

Further inside this basin we will finally find and visit the little Runghetiello Grotto, named after a local fish.

The return trip to Amalfi will give us a different but equally remarkable view of both sea and land.
