The Amalfi Coast is a top-notch tourist destination, one that’s well known around the world and is on many people’s bucket lists, while in the same fashion millions of tourists visit this Italian coast to marvel at its unique amenities, from rocky cliffs, and fragrant lemon tree to turquoise waters, and sandy beaches has long captivated travelers.

One of the best ways to get around is by taking a walking holiday on the Amalfi Coast, because beyond the well-known paths of Positano and Capri lies hidden treasures, undiscovered spots that few tourists know about.

Now, let’s explore the lesser-known side of a walking holiday with Orbis Ways, and explore the hidden gems of the Amalfi Coast like a local.

Bagni della Regina Giovanna

While you embark on one of the best walking holidays in Italy, and explore the ins and outs of the Amalfi coast, you’ll get a small detour and visit The Bagni della Regina Giovanna, or Baths of Queen Joanna, a series of small coastal pools nestled along the Amalfi Coast.

Imagine secluded coves surrounded by lush vegetation, olive trees, and Mediterranean scrub, where the waves slowly feed the emerald-green waters.

Furore Fjord

Furore is home to several of my favorite spots, the hidden beach, the town, and the area in general are stunning enough to make you wonder if you are dreaming.

Not far from Conca Dei Marini, you’ll find the charming town of Furore. Here lies the Furore Fjord, a small, hidden beach visible from a scenic bridge.

The fjord’s calm waters, rocky cliffs, and the bridge on top create a unique picturesque setting, a secret spot to truly enjoy the Amalfi Coast.

Villaggio Monte Faito

If you’re looking for a different way to enjoy the Amalfi Coast head to Villaggio Monte Faito which offers a different perspective. The town is situated on the mountainside and provides breathtaking views of the coastline.

Here you’ll get the chance to enjoy the best and clearest views of Castellammare di Stabia, a breathtaking sight.

On the other hand, you’ll be able to explore hiking trails, breathe in the fresh mountain air, and immerse yourself in the local way of life.

It’s a peaceful retreat far removed from the bustling tourist hubs.

Climb Castello di Arechi in Salerno

To keep the motion away from the coast, you can visit Salerno, which is not a hidden gem but it’s the getaway to ascend to the top of Castello di Arechi.

This is a medieval fortress that, besides its history, will reward you with panoramic views of the Amalfi Coast and the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The climb may not be for the faint of heart but is worth every step, especially during sunset when the sky ignites with colors.

Valle Delle Ferriere

Now, every walking holiday needs a bit of lush green areas to explore and there’s no better option than the Valle Delle Ferriere is a lush valley packed with waterfalls and ancient paper mills.

You can embark on a scenic hike through this unique landscape, and explore the moss-covered rocks and ferns that create an otherworldly atmosphere.

The trail leads you to the heart of nature, away from the tourist buzz.
