1. At the stairs near the bus stop
When I visited Positano, I couldn't believe my eyes. The beautiful houses, the hill, and the beach look magical.
There are many spots where you can admire the view. But the view from the stairs is definitely amazing.
If you go to Positano by bus, you will immediately see the stunning view. Also, the stairs are very close to the bus spot.
I love this spot a lot. The combination of the color of the stairs and the view is amazing. Also, you can take photos here that actually tell a story.
You can take many different photos here.
For example, you can take a photo while having a look at the view. But you can also take photos while you're walking down the stairs. I love all the possibilities!
This place definitely belongs to the best Instagram photo spots in Positano!
2. Alley next to the shops
Another very photogenic place in Positano is the alley next to the shops.
This place is not one of the most famous Instagram spots in Positano. But it's definitely worth taking some pictures here.
In the background, you see the famous houses of Positano. As you see, the houses are a bit more subtle in this photo than in other photos.
I love that, as there are many places in the town where you can spot the houses in a less obvious way. This is definitely a great place to capture that.
Also, the colors of the alley are very beautiful. These colors and the houses match and that's so pretty!
Moreover, if you take photos here you also capture one of the stores in this alley. That definitely adds value to your photo. It shows a bit more of the town than the usual photos that people take in Positano.
3. Bench in the fence
If you're walking along the black fence in Positano, you will notice that there are many benches in the fence.
These benches are perfect for photos, as you can do great poses here. It's very different from just standing and watching the view!
Try to sit down, do some fun poses and I'm sure you'll get the best pictures!
Furthermore, this is also a very comfortable place to relax for a while.
From here, you can admire the wonderful view while sitting down. I was so happy when I discovered this place! I could sit here for hours and enjoy the beauty of Positano.
4. Sidewalk next to the road
The sidewalk next to the road is also one of the best Instagram photo spots in Positano.
From here, you can see the dreamy view of the town. There are so many options for photos here!
You can take photos while walking and standing still. Also, you can switch the angles a bit.
For example, you can only capture the houses and the beach in the background. But you can also take a photo of the houses and the road.
Furthermore, this is a very long road. You can walk a bit closer to the houses or a bit farther away. When you do that, you'll capture the view in many different ways!
Also, this is the same fence as the fence from the previous spot!
Another photo tip is to wear beautiful accessories in your photos! For example, hats, hair accessories, and bags look great in Positano!
5. On the beach
You probably already knew that Positano has an amazing beach. The beach is one of the famous places in the town!
This beach is very photogenic. It definitely belongs to the best Instagram photo spots in Positano. From here, you have the perfect view of the houses.
Since I visited Positano in autumn, the colorful beach beds weren't there. Most photos you see of Positano are in summer. Then, the beach beds are at this spot.
Even though there are only beach beds in summer, visiting Positano in autumn and winter is great!
For example, it's quieter and there are fewer crowds then. That makes it easier to take photos without people in the background.
Also, the weather is perfect in autumn, because it's not too hot and it's also not too cold. In summer it can be very hot in Italy!
But if you love hot summer days, then that's actually a disadvantage. Moreover, it is more affordable to visit the Amalfi Coast in autumn.
This is what de sunbeds look like in summer! It is very colorful and also perfect for photos.
6. The colorful houses from the other side
Positano is photogenic from every side!
This is a spot where you can capture the colorful houses from the other side. If you want to take this photo, you need to follow the main road that's also on photo spot 4. After walking for a while, you'll get here!
I love how different the houses look from here. The beautiful colors of the houses look amazing in combination with the trees.
Furthermore, a very important photo tip is to always take several kinds of photos at the same place!
For example, the photo below looks very different from the photo above. As you see, they are both at the same spot.
You will either have several good photos if you do that or one good photo if some didn't work out. Either way, it's a positive outcome!
7. Residence la Tavolozza
Residence la Tavolozza is such a cute and photogenic place! This is one of the best Instagram photo spots in Positano for sure.
The views from here are amazing and the white bench looks so cute. You can sit here and take some photos. But it's also beautiful to take photos here while you're standing!
Moreover, you can also take pictures here with a larger part of the beach in the background.
8. From your hotel
If you stay in Positano, there are many beautiful hotels to choose from! Most of the hotels have wonderful views from the rooms.
If you're lucky enough, you even have your own beautiful terrace! If you're staying in such a hotel, you should definitely take photos here as well.
Sometimes hotels have a beautiful view of the famous houses of Positano. But many hotels have wonderful views of the sea and that's very photogenic as well.
The blue sea looks very dreamy on a sunny day. These hotels belong to the best Instagram photo spots in Positano for sure!
But if you're going to Positano on a budget, you can better stay somewhere else. There are places near Positano with hotels that are way more affordable.
For example, you can stay in Sorrento. This is a lovely town near Positano and there are many affordable hotels and Airbnbs.
Even though your accommodation will be less photogenic, it will save lots of money!
If you're in Positano in autumn and winter, most hotels aren't open. In that case, it's also a great idea to stay in another city such as Sorrento.
9. Positano from a boat
If you want to do something very fun on the Amalfi Coast, you should rent a boat! There are several places where you can rent a boat in Positano.
It is amazing to sail on the Amalfi Coast and go to all the towns by boat. Furthermore, it's also way more comfortable than traveling by bus or car!
