May 2017 Trip Report: Positano (Day 10)

 Spagio Beach in May--got more crowded in the afternoon.  

Spagio Beach in May--got more crowded in the afternoon.  

After over a week of walking/climbing stairs, Friday was reserved as a no walking day! I spent the whole day chilling at the main beach in Positano. Well, I stared at it from a little bit away. There is a secluded beach chair rental area called La Scogliera (it's associated with the nearby restaurant but in its own section of concrete and rocks by the water, no sand though a few rentals were on sand) and I picked it because I liked that it was more quiet and the rental (35 euros) included a beach towel and bottle of water.  This area also includes food service whereas in Spagio you only get a chair rental.

I showed up at 10:30 am and there was no one there but workers. Granted it was still a little chillier but it gets hot quick when you're in the sun! It was around 70 degrees Fahrenheit when I was there.

As the day wore on, more people showed up. Mainly after 2 pm. I quite enjoyed my stay. My only complaint was that anytime the wind got too strong they would closed my umbrella! I understood why but I try to hide from the sun even though I love being outside. This probably happened 30% of my time there though but I'm just very sensitive to being in the sun.  

For lunch, pizza, salads or paninis were available. I went with the margherita pizza which was pricey at 15 euros but I'm vacation so fine. If I had time to look for something better I would but I just wanted to sit and be catered to. It was pretty good though, I ate the whole thing!! Wasn't heavy either, I didn't feel gross as I would if I ate an entire NYC pizza.

The bathroom and changing facilities are nice here as well. Basically it's a luxe way to enjoy the beach and I fully took advantage of it! 

 Miss you already!
