Summer on the Amalfi Coast - Isle Blue

Although you might find a dizzying array of suggestions about the ideal time to pay a visit to the Amalfi Coast (with the consensus pointing towards April through June), you can enjoy an unforgettable holiday in this area of Italy throughout the entire summer season (from June until early September).

Clients of Isle Blue should understand that their villas ensure they don’t run into the issues that usually lead experts to indicate an earlier time of the year. For instance, most advise visiting earlier than July or August because of the flood of travelers who make their way to the region during the summer months. However, in a private villa on the Amalfi Coast, you won’t live with a crush of people at the pool, long lines at the hotel restaurant in the morning, and difficulties navigating out of town.

Instead, you will be able to leisurely awaken to the gorgeous Mediterranean skies, enjoy your breakfast (whether you opt to make your own or book one of our chefs), walk to your private terrace or pool, and plan your day. You can speak with your concierge to determine if hiring a car is a good solution, or book a driver and pre-arrange everything from hiking or cycling excursions to vineyard tours.

Why Summer

Though the late spring and early summer seasons are quieter, and the scenery just as wonderful, a summertime visit in July or August means you enjoy the many different events and things to do that occur only at this time. The local festivals that celebrate food, wine, flowers and other unique issues are at their peak in the summer. So too are the international festivals such as the different musical events, film festivals, sports activities and so much more.

Late summer, such as in early to mid-September still counts, and it is a time when the temperatures dip a bit and when there are fewer travelers. It is a harvest time too, and if you are visiting to really delve into the cuisine of the Amalfi coast, this might be a perfect moment.

The Amalfi Coast in Summer

Because the coast is under 50 miles in length, and close to Naples, you will want to be sure to plan your days wisely. Midday temperatures, during summer months, can be quite hot. This is why you may want to head out earlier in the day, avoiding a lot of the traffic, and reach your midday destination in advance.

If you are heading to Positano for the amazing food and scenery, or to use the amazing stairs to navigate up and down from shore, an arrival earlier in the day avoids the crowds. You can also leave town in the afternoon, via a small private boat and visit the Spaggia di Lauriot cove where unforgettable swimming and dining can be found.

If traveling to Ravello, you can reverse the time line since most travelers depart by mid afternoon, making it a wonderful town to explore during the evening. Sorrento is a great place to embark on a journey along the coast, while Amalfi is a good destination for a visit to the Grotta dello Smeraldo or Capri. If you do go to Capri, skip the tourists and head to Anacapri where there are gorgeous villas and many wonderful cafes.

Touring the Amalfi Coast is best done at the peak season, but you won’t have to fear the crowds as a client of Isle Blue. Your private home will give you everything a high end hotel offers, with the added benefits of quiet, tranquility and total peace. With villas offering large grounds, chefs and staff, and convenient settings close to the coast, your dream summer holiday is within reach.
