A town on the Amalfi coast in the province of Salerno has been a popular tourist resort, with the longest steady stretch of beach on the Amalfi coastline. Today the ancient town's name still derives from the name of the river that runs through the town – Reginna, situated at the mouth of the valley of Tramonti. Considering the entire Amalfi coast I found the best beaches in Maiori which extends over 1.5-kilometre with dark volcanic sand and stones that thaw out into clear, shallow water. Renting a scooter is the best way to get round. However, only experienced motorcycle riders should rent one: do not rent one or else, as the roads are contracted and can be very risky for inexperienced riders. There are sun beds and sunshade for hire, along with pedals and rowing boats, plus motor boats providing you tours of the seashore from the port at the far other end of the beach. It is a perfect holiday destination for families with children. You’ll find a quieter beach. Beaches to the side, Maiori piles up ample of historical sites. A good environment, and there is still an original and pleasant feel to the place. The arched Santa Maria parish, is a must visit for its well-known Madonna and Child statue. You will still find the town’s unusual Roman prehistoric walls as well. We also took the lovely eastward walk to the Capo d’Orso cliff where we reached right up to an ancient monastery with 11th-century mural paintings executed upon freshly laid lime plaster. Maiori is a quaint little town liked by many visitors for clean sandy seashores splendidly cuddled up between blue seas and citrus orchards. The village, with its small harbor on a beautiful bay, was the weapon store for the medieval Republic of Amalfi. A few steps from the harbor is the church of Santa Trofimena, If you walk beside the left side of the cathedral and climb up the stairs, you will arrive at the amazing 12th-century Campanile; it is the sole vestige of the church of Santa Annunziata, and its unique decorations are still fresh-looking. The walkway along the seaside is a pleasurable place to experience peacefull and soothing views in the area with small rocky port to the west of town. In summers the beach is crowded due to visitors season and you will find all usual amenities to explore the beaches on rent like resting chairs, umbrellas, and motorboats. You can also rent out boats at the dock. One easy pleasure trip is to trail the beach east past the Norman Tower through boat. In the sea cliff below is a cave, whose mineral spring is very unusual because it smells like sulphur, but farther than on is an isolated curve of beach and, beyond that you will discover the partially underwater doorway to Grotta Pannone. An area to discover on foot is Capo d'Orso, east of town. Covering 500 hectares, with an average altitude of 70m, the natural landscape extends to the Torrente Bonea and the whole view is magnificent amongst the other sites in Amalfi Coast. The original limestone peninsula has been worn out by the sea, and stones are coming out of the bedspread of macchia mediterranea, crafting a unique landscape. Dont forget to visit Villa Marittima Romana, an ancient roman villa considered to be one of the most important monuments on the whole Amalfi Coast.
