Club L'Africana

A classic sea-cavern disco near Positano, Amalfi Coast

Imagine a 1960s disco, only one that is installed in a sea cavern complete with a glass floor for viewing the fishies—fishermen sometimes come to dredge the holes while the party's going on—très avant-garde chic.

That's L'Africano, a storied stalwart of the Italian glitterati nightlife scene for more than 50 years, hidden by the sea about a mile outside of Praiano.

There are three ways to arrive at L'Africao: by following the path from Praiano, by riding an elevator down from the Amalfi Drive itself, or (most fashionably) aboard one of the nightclub's chartered boats (call ahead; they usually leave around 11:30pm from the Pontile Lucibello dock at Spiaggia Grande, returning to Positano at 3am).
