A holiday to Meta di Sorrento lines up a sandy beach, top-notch Italian food, and easy access to nearby Sorrento.
Days on the beach
Meta di Sorrento is a laid-back seafront town in Italy’s southwest. One of the best things about this place is that it has a sandy beach – a rare sight along the rocky Amalfi coast. This volcanic stretch of sand comes with all the trimmings, too. You can hire a boat, relax on a sunlounger, or grab lunch from a waterside bar.
For centuries, fishing has been big business in this harbour town. Seafood, delivered from port to plate in a matter of hours, is a staple dish alongside Italian classics like pizza and pasta. Try it for yourself at one of the restaurants carved into the cliff-side, offering up jaw-dropping views across the bay.
Exploring the Amalfi coast
Meta may be small, but its central location makes exploring really easy. Just a five-minute train ride lands you in the cobbled streets of sophisticated Sorrento, while picture-perfect Positano is half an hour’s drive. The mighty Mount Vesuvius and the ancient ruins of Pompeii are also around an hour away.
