Famous for its anchovies, the pretty fishing village of Cetara also offers a lovely beach, great photo opportunities and some great places to eat and drink in its centre.
The gorgeous fishing village of Cetara is one of the highlights along the eastern section of the Amalfi Coast Road.
As with so many towns and villages in Italy, Cetara is famous for a particular food that it produces and in this case it's anchovies. As you walk up and down the main thoroughfare you'll find signs for "Alici di Cetara" (Anchovies from Cetara) with some shops solely selling anchovy-based products.
The focal point of the town is undoubtedly the beach area where depending on the time of year you'll either find fishing boats, sunbathers or a combination of both.
Just behind the beach there's a small cluster of bars and restaurants with more places to eat to be found along the main street that runs from the top of the town down to the beach. Other highlights of Cetara include its pretty, domed church as well as the fort that stares down onto the beach.
You can easily reach Cetara by car as it sits on the main Amalfi Coast Road while buses also run in both directions.
