Praiano has few small pebble beaches, some are only reachable by boat.
The main ones are Marina di Praia especially in the evening because of the famous night club L’Africana but also for the lovely restaurants. La Gavitella, the other main beach, lately the most entertaining beach of the coast for its seaside lidos. It is also one of the few beaches of the Amalfi Coast facing west, thus having the best exposure to the sun rotation enjoying the longest sun light on the Amalfi Coast until 8.00pm during the summer period.
