The Amalfi Coast is filled with so many secluded beaches it's nearly impossible to pinpoint where exactly all of them are, let alone allot enough time to get to them. But if you were to choose just one, you should make it to the Furore Fiordo, considered one of the most interesting geological features on the Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Highway connects the two sides of the fjord via a bridge, acting as both the beach's main focal point and its point of access. From there, travelers can descend stairs that cascade down the gorge's stony cliffs and either take a dip, admire the surrounding scenery or explore the other trails situated at the beach. One trail takes visitors farther along the cliffs, leading to direct views of the ocean, while another opposite the beach leads explorers into an old fishing village and a series of paper mills. The town of Furore is located just above the gorge and is also accessible via a trail. 
Many recent visitors found the attraction to be nothing short of picturesque, and those who did visit during the warmer months thoroughly enjoyed swimming in the turquoise waters. What's more, many reported that despite its popularity, the beach wasn't overrun with tourists. And though some found it difficult to get to (citing the lack of parking and steep stairs as hinderances), most said it was completely worth it, with some travelers calling it the highlight of their Amalfi trip. 
The Furore Fiordo is located about 4 miles southwest of Amalfi. The best way to get there is by car and the only place to park is along the highway. Travelers can also take the Positano – Amalfi line on the Sita bus to get here. The Furore Fiordo is free to visit and open all hours of the day and night. For more information, visit the Positano Tourism Board's website.

Of all the Amalfi towns, Positano caters most to tourists, having the most hotels of any in the region and acting as a central departure point for boat tours. And with its pastel-colored architecture, popular beaches and chic shopping, it's as quintessentially Amalfi as you can get.  Eugeny / Getty Images

The Amalfi Coast is brimming with amazing trails and pathways just itching to be traversed. A traveler favorite is Path of the Gods, which takes hikers right along the edges of the famous coastal cliffs.  Jürgen Mangelsdorf / Flickr

The Amalfi Coast is home to 100 beaches, but don't expect your typical shorelines. Due to the geography of the coast, beaches are small and composed of pebbles, so bring comfy footwear.  Pola Damonte via Getty Images / Getty Images

The Villa Cimbrone Gardens are the most important example of English landscape and botany culture in the South of Europe, housing both rare species and centuries-old plants. A word of warning though: Some visitors found the gardens to be a bit lackluster outside of peak season blooming (spring).  Kevin & Debbie Rudd / Getty Images

The picture-perfect Furore Fiordo garners praise from travelers for its beauty. If you're visiting in the summer months, you may want to pick this stretch of sand to beat the heat. Due to its location, the sun only ever hits the beach in the morning, creating a cool hideaway in the afternoon.    robangel69 / Getty Images
