10 Beautiful Instagram Photo Ops Along the Amalfi Coast

So you’re studying abroad and you want to document every little experience? We totally get it. If you want an instagram feed that rivals that of your favorite travel blogger, see below for where to grab those iconic shots, and maybe even a few hidden gems to stand out from that Amalfi influencer crowd.

1. Positano Beach – Spiaggia Grande

How else would we kick off our list than with the famous Spiaggia Grande in Positano? You can take a picture with the colorful houses behind you from the beach, from in the water, on the iconic chaise lounges with orange umbrellas. It was hard to pick the perfect photo to capture the instagram essence of the black sand beaches, but we love this photo of some study abroad bros getting into the Italian spirit!

2. Capri’s Famous Faraglioni Rocks

From our private tour around the Island of Capri, snap a photo of the famous Faraglioni rocks.

3. Inside the Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto isn’t always available to go into if there is inclement weather, so if you’ve got the opportunity, make sure you hop aboard a row boat in order to grab a shot. The cave glows blue as the light reflects through the water. Stunning, to say the least.

5. Cheers with your Granitas!

Grab your best girls and take a boomerang as you cheers with your granitas, or grab a solo shot with the coastline behind you. You can’t go wrong with one of these classic drinks in your hand!

10. Looking Out From La Sponda

This restaurant in Positano is particularly instagrammable, especially for a green, white, or natural aesthetic. Plus, it’s a score for foodies!

In front of the window is a lovely little table with two chairs and a light green table cloth. Through the window, one can see the famous dome of Positano and the sea just beyond.
