Giardini del Fuenti has shed its ‘eco-monster’ past — and set its sights on a greener future.

Italy’s Amalfi Coast needs little introduction. The 30-mile stretch of land on the southern edge of the Sorrentine Peninsula has long been a favored travel destination. Visitors have fallen in love with its striking landscape of rugged shorelines, plunging mountains, pebbled coves, and pastel-colored villages precariously perched atop cliffs.

Positano and Amalfi are the area’s heavy tourism hitter. But continue driving down the coast, and you’ll find a crop of less-famous towns and sun-kissed destinations that are equally, if not more, charming in their unspoiled beauty. Giardini del Fuenti, a luxe beach hangout just off the winding road between Vietri sul Mare and Cetara, is one of those places.
