The view fem this private beach is simply stunning, however please know that they do not lend towels at all and the service is basic. The price is quite fair, if you plan on staying for a one to two hours then fine but would not recommend for more than that.

Casual beach club. Sits above/to the side of One Fire Beach, which is its younger/more lively neighbor. Not that quiet since you still get a bit of the bumping music from One Fire Beach.

We reserved four chairs at Cala Gavitella. When we got to the place (after 400 steps of a long staircase) we found out the only structure they offer are chairs and umbrellas. We had to buy beer and water at One Fire Beach Club, a much better place, with a restaurant few steps from the water. Choose One Fire when... More

Once you're on the "beach" you have only two choices of where to eat. We chose Cala, I wish we hadn't! I ordered a tuna panini, 3 slices of stale bimbo bread arrived with about 0.5 euros worth of filling. It was so bad that I sent it back. They only wanted about 10 euros for this. I then ordered...

We ate at the bar above the restaurant- it's a good place to take time out from the beach club loungers for lunch with a beautiful view and a cool terrace. Good prices- pizzas €8-9, fries €5, not the best but ok for refuelling.

We were invited there for the first time by a friend who lives locally and then went back 4 times over the next week! An absolute first for me. Husband and wife team run a magical spot, with wife lovingly receiving guests in front of house and husband working alchemy in the kitchen. Best "Crudo di Mare" and lemon pasta... More

My friend and I read about this restaurant in one of our guide books and wanted to try a place with good, fresh seafood. We arrived on a Saturday evening to find ourselves the only ones at the restaurant and had to check with them to be sure it was even open. Our first choices on the menu were "no... More

Since april 2011, the gavitella has been under the new expert management of paolo, a positano summer native. At the front of the house there is his charming partner sara, of australian,italian origin, so no language problems.the gavitella is a stunning location between priano and positano away from the beaten tourist track. It is great fun to be picked upand taken home by private boat, courtesy of the patrons..A Perfect place to sunbathe on the deck lounges and swim in the sea from the small rocky beach and afterwards to enjoy a cool drink in the shade, a delicious lunch or a romantic candlelit dinner.the menu has been revisited by the new chef and features fresh fish, local produce, both traditional and contempory cuisine with truly mediterranean italian flavours.it is also possible to anchor your yacht or motor boat infront of the restaurant, telephone them for aperitivo service or to be shuttled to the restaurant for lunch or dinner, just ring and they will collect you.you may want to celebrate wedding receptions, birthdays, anniversaries here, a perfect place.
