Clear skies and deep blue waters

A refugium nestled between rock and ocean the city of Praiano is idyllic and in a sense a little bit of the beaten path. Which makes the long winding road leading down to the ocean worth the walk down or up (its quite a walk but there is a bus going up and down).

Here you find the Pirates Cove, at the end of the street Ristorante Il Pirata serves some of the best sea urchin linguini you will have in your life time but thats just part of the enticing menu which includes a favorite like ‘Totani and Patate alla Praianese’, a mixture of potatoes, freshly-fished squid with white wine, chili pepper and olive oil.

The whole restaurant was carved into the rock perched on a cliff looking out into the deep blue ocean.

If you arrive during the day you can and you get lucky you can rent out a sun bed so after a cliff jump into the cool waters you have a place to relax from all the relaxing you have already done.

The town’s name – Praiano – derives from the praia, or beach, from the Latin word pelagium, meaning “open sea.” During the 10th-11th centuries, Praiano was once the summer residence of the doges of the Duchy of Amalfi.
