The Costiera Amalfitana (Amalfi Coast) - As seen from the sea

The view of the Amalfi Coast is unbelievably beautiful from nearly any vantage point, but from the sea it is gorgeous beyond belief.

There are a number of ways that you can take in the visual feast that is the Amalfi Coast. There are cruises that leave Positano, Amalfi, and Sorrento that skirt the coast and offer unbelievable views.

Another option is to rent a small craft from one of the kiosks down near the beach in Positano. Personally, this is my favorite. It is possible to rent a small speed boat for around $200 a day.

You can then freely move up and down the coast line. For a small fee ($10 -$30) you will be able to tie up in the harbors of the towns along the coast.  If the seas are calm and the mood strikes you could even shoot out to the Marina Grande of Capri for lunch.
