Walking to Santa Margharita from Positano

by Mimi21 Online Now Sep 12, 2008 at 9:23 AM

Our cruise ship docks in Positano. We are thinking of walking to Santa Margharita. Is the walk on the road or on the beach better. Is it approximately 5 mi, and any other advice for a day trip.

    probably less than 5 miles, maybe two or three, but on a narrow winding road with no shoulders and no real room to walk. Dangerous. Better you should take the bus. there are hiking trails over to san fruttoso which might be more appealing if you wish to walk.

    I think it should be from S.M.L to Portofino not Positano which is near Sorrento, Capri in the south of Italy. Portofino is within 30 minutes from S.M.L.

    Sorry, I meant Portofino. Someone wrote that you can walk along the shore all the way. Is that possible? Since we will be arriving early, we figured if we walk it will be good exercise and we will get there just about when the stores, etc open. Is it really so dangerous?

    you cannot walk along the shore all the way. at multiple levels the hills go right into the water.
