There is a network of ferries that run along the towns of the Amalfi Coast. The ferry service is run by Coop Sant'Andrea .They provide quicker access to the towns during the summer months, as opposed to the one main Amalfi Coast road which connects Amalfi to Praiano to Positano and onwards to Sorrento. Major ferry stops are Salerno, Sorrento, Positano, and Amalfi. In summer, there are ferry connections from Positano and Amalfi to the pretty towns of Maiori and Minori. Praiano is not serviced by ferry as there is no stable pier to dock and ultimately the marina is very shallow. Positano is the closest point for people staying in Praiano who want the ferry.
