One of the most romantic stretches of coastline in the world, the Amalfi Coast is a superlative honeymoon spot full of intimate porticoes, cobblestone streets and low-lit restaurants. Though it’s hard to go wrong, here are Forbes Travel Guide’s editors’ picks for the three best honeymoon activities in the region:
1. Wander through Atrani. Steer away from the crowds and toward the secluded atmosphere of this small village on the Amalfi Coast. Home to the beautiful church of San Salvatore de Birecto, Atrani lets you absorb the romantic charms of southern Italy in private.
2. Escape into the Emerald Cave. On the Amalfi Coast, you expect brilliant blue water, but in the Grotta dello Smeraldo, it’s green that will dazzle you. The cavern is lit up with green light that glows over impressive rock formations — it’s a great spot to steal a private moment.
3. Find a secluded beach. Pack a lunch, hire a boat and ask the driver to come back at an agreed-upon time. Local seafarers can help you find an untouched beach to comb. Though it’s unlikely you will have trouble finding a private cove, you can also try the thermal pools on the island of Ischia.
