Furore: The Little Italian Beach Hidden in a Fjord

(Photo: Fotoweb)

It’s so picturesque that I want to go there immediately! Furore, a village on Italy’s Amalfi coast, is known for its fjord, which is called the Fiordo. This gorge cuts straight into the rock, bringing a narrow strip of the sea to a lovely sandy beach. The town is hidden inside this rift, which is why Furore is sometimes called the “town that doesn’t exist.” There, at the beach, you can rest in the shade provided by the mountains or cool yourself in the blue water.

If you’re a bit more adventurous, then you can walk across the bridge that connects the two sides, then dive 98 feet from the bridge into the crystal clear water. It hosts an international diving competition. You can see more photos at Amusing Planet.

That building has tall cliffs on 2 sides, an uphill slope on the 3rd side, and an open, downhill slope toward the sea on the 4th side. Guess which direction stuff flows whenever somebody flushes.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
