Travel Guide

Maiori showing boating, a coastal town and general coastal views

Relax on the beach, check out ancient churches, order pasta on the promenade and take to the water on a boat. 

Maiori is a popular seaside resort that stretches down a limestone cliff to the sea. It has the appearance of a modern settlement, which helps it stand out from other villages along the coast. In 1954 a catastrophic flood destroyed many of the old houses that once stood here and much of the town was completely rebuilt.

Kick off your shoes and get the sand between your toes on the beach. Rent a sunbed or get active on the water with a pedalo or rowing boat. The beach is directly opposite the town and consists of free bathing areas and bathing establishments with sunbeds and umbrellas for rent.

In Maiori, as with all other towns on the Amalfi Coast, the main attractions of historic and cultural interest are the churches. There are several religious structures here from different ages and they reflect a range of architectural styles.

Go to the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria a Mare, the town’s main church. This 13th century building has been remodeled several times over the centuries and features a majolica cupola and 16th century carved wooden ceiling. The Museum of Sacred Art in the crypt houses the church’s many religious treasures. These include relief sculptures, busts and the relics of Saint Clemente.

Visit the Castello San Nicola, a 9th century fortress at the highest point of Maiori.

The resort is easy to get around on foot and there are bars, gelaterias and shops dotted along the streets. Search for gifts and clothes on Corso Regina, Maiori’s principle shopping street.

Maiori is set amidst picturesque countryside. Go for a nature walk through the forests and vineyards of Capo d’Orso, a natural park east of the town. Look out for the local wildlife including foxes, weasels, badgers, buzzards and peregrine falcons.

Maiori is situated approximately halfway between Amalfi and Salerno, and is easy to get to by bus or ferry from Salerno, Sorrento and Naples.
