Bella Baia Campsite (Maiori)

The Dead horse bay or in other name Bellabaia is often referred as the most beautiful bay on the Amalfi Coast.

It is only accessible by boat.

But what if I tell you there is an other way?

Book a place in this camping and you will get a backyard access to the bay.

Although its only for the adventurous.

Beach Access:

Contrary to the luxury hotels, there are no elevators to bring you down to the sea level. A rather narrow path on the cliffside with 350 steps will take you to the proximity of the bay.

The staircase ends in the sea, but in a rocky part of it. From here you still have to swim couple of meters to get on the bay itself. So bringing towels, and snacks with you would only be possible in a waterproof bag.

Glamping at Bella Baia

This is a traditional lemon farm that works also as a camping.

Other than classic campings, you don’t need your own tent or cooking equipment.

You’ll find pre-made tents and space for cooking. All tents come with BBQ area with charcoal ready to use.

Tents are under the lemon orchards, across different levels of the agricultural terraces.
