The Amalfi Coast is one of the most romantic and spectacular places I have ever visited. The Amalfi Coast is a paradise for any photographer or Instagramer and a week or two here will for sure boost your social media accounts and photo collections. Below I will share 11 amazing Amalfi Coast Instagram, the best Amalfi Coast photography, including my favorite Positano Instagram spots, my favorite place on the coast!
During our road trip from Rome to the Amalfi Coast we experienced the most magic and breathtaking views and had some amazing days in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Read all about our Amalfi Coast Road Trip in my Amalfi Coast Travel Guide Post.
My 5 Favorite Positano Instagram Spots
Positano you stole my heart is the heading of my Positano travel story and it is hard not to fall in love with this small colorful village climbing up the mountainside by the gorgeous turquoise water. A true heaven for photographers and Instagram lovers. You will find a new photo and Positano Instagram spot around every corner but to help you out I will share some of my favorite Positano Instagram Spots below.
1. The Positano Post Card Views – The Star Among Amalfi Coast Photograpy
Instagram is overloaded with these postcard photos, still you never get tired of them. Positano offers the most magical Amalfi Coast photography spots. Given the many view points and small streets up along the mountain side there is always a new angle to capture to make your photo unique. I found three favorite Positano Instagram Spots.
To get a magic view of the full valley with the sea in the background take a walk up the streets towards the entrance point of Positano. Climb up the small stairs you will find a lot of nice spots along the way. Outside my favorite breakfast place Casa e Bottega is a perfect spot with a bench (the first photo of this post) and if you climb one level up you will get a breathtaking view of the full valley.
Even though you are not staying at Le Sirenuse you must pay this red gem a visit. If not just for a minute or two to step out on the terrace. One of my favorite Positano Instagram spots for sure and a place from where many photos are taken.
Continue up the road from Le Sirenuse hotel and you will find yet another Positano Instagram spot and view. If you are lucky the locals have put some lemons up for you for a picture perfect photo!
Would you like to stay at Le Sirenuse. THEN BOOK IT HERE!
2. The Picturesque Alleys of Positano
Walking around Positano is not something you do without getting a bit tired. But do not let the many stairs and hilss scare you as it is there you will find the most gorgeous spots for a photo! Climb up the hills and take the small alleys down to the Positano Smaller Beach. The combination of colors here are truly stunning and so many Positano Instagram spots along the way!
3. The Deep Blue Sea – A Gem Among the Positano Instagram Spots
Once down by the beach you will get your reward for the steep climbing. Positano Smaller Besch is located in a small bay and the water is as deep blue as it can get!
The walk along the coast line to the main beach -Positano Spiaggia – offers a lot of nice view points and ones again, magic Positano Instagram spots!
4. The Iconic Landmark – The Church of Santa Maria Assunta
A famous one among Amalfi Coast photography you will find in Positano. The Church of Santa Maria Assunta, with its golden dome is for sure a Positano Instagram spot you have to add to your list.
The square in front is another great viewpoint and if you like me are a pink girl, well then you have found another photo spot for sure!
5. Breakfast with a View
You can not leave Positano without at lest one breakfast with a view photo in your Amalfi Coast photography collection. Caffé Positano is a good spot for a good instagram breakfast photo.
However, if you are in for a delicious breakfast Casa e Bottega is my strongest recommendation. This place might not have the view but the design is spot on and the food amazing. For design lovers this is one of the best Amalfi Coast Instagram spots!

My 4 Favorite Amalfi Instagram Spots
Amalfi, is the white shining diamond just around the corner from Positano. Still very different with one main street, much more crowded and touristic than Positano. Amalfi is one of the favorite stops of many of the cruise ships in the Mediterranean and during daytime it is hard to get any good photos without the crowd. As always, there are some hidden gems also in Amalfi and below are my favorites. Two beyond the crowds and two that you either make sure to be an early or late bird to catch.
1. Amalfi Shine Bright Like a Diamond
Amalfi from a distance, from the sea side and the roundabout just by the harbor is a fantastic sight. The bright and white houses climbing the hillside is a perfect scenery for some epic photos. You just have to wait for the right moment when the crowd has left Amalfi and the perfect lightening hour is setting in! Another must for your Amalfi Coast photography collection.
2. The Cathedral – A Must Among Amalfi Coast Instagram Spots
One of the most iconic landmarks in Amalfi is its cathedral, the Amalfi Cathedral.
Of course one of the most popular Amalfi Coast Instagram spots but if you wake up early or wait until dawn is setting in you can get some truly amazing photos here. The many steps leading up to this majestic cathedral is just waiting for you to take a magic shot to your Amalfi Coast photography collection.
3. A Luxury Escape @ Santa Caterina Hotel
If you are looking for Amalfi Coast Instagram spots beyond the crowds, then Santa Caterina hotel is the perfect hang out during day time and place for some Amalfi Coast photography. This traditional hotel has a breathtaking location. Basically hanging out over the steep cliff and at the bottom is a luxury beach club. The setting of both the hotel and the beach club will inspire you to keep your camera busy
4. The Hidden Gems Beyond the Main Street
At first glance you will find one main street and a square in Amalfi town but if you step into the narrow tunnel streets and the stairs beyond them, you will find some true hidden gems and great Amalfi Coast Instagram spots and places for your Amalfi Coast photography.
We stayed at a hip boutique hotel, Amalfi Luxury House, located 100 meters up the mountains with the cutest hidden yard decorated in my favorite pastel colors.
The hotel in itself was also an Amalfi Instagram spot with cool design and a rooftop with view of Amalfi from above!

Ravello – The Place with the Most Magic Views
We thought we had seen the most magic views and the best Amalfi Coast Instagram spots during our road trip and did not have any high expectations regarding our last stop, Ravello. However, the sights at Ravello completely took our breath away. The Ravello Instagram spots are truly one of a kind! Read more about this gem in my Ravello Travel Story Post!
1. The Views fromVilla Rufolo – A Must in Your Amalfi Coast Photography Collection
Villa Rufolo was built in the 13th century by a wealthy family which is easy to tell. Everything about this place is just stunning, from the courtyards to the design of the villa with the amazing marble floor. However, it is the view that will make your Instagram engagement rate sky rocket:)! A dream for every photographer and nature lover. A place that is even better in reality than in a photo! An absolute favorite of mine among the Amalfi Coast Instagram spots.

2. The Colorful & Artsy Streets
When in Ravello, do not stop at Villa Rufolo but continue exploring the streets and alleys behind the square and you will find the most amazing Amalfi Coast Instagram spots with the prettiest squares with painters, colorful houses and yards and a lot of pink houses.
Truth is that me and Fredrik were not so good at photography when we did our Amalfi Coast Road trip but as you see, this place is so beautiful so every photo you take here just turns into magic. Hope you will enjoy the Amalfi Coast as much as we did and that this guide will help you boost your Instagram or just your travel photos.
