Get outdoors at Fornillo and Bagni d'Arienzo Beach Club, Positano. Get out of town with these interesting Positano side-trips: Amalfi (Duomo di Sant'Andrea & Wine Tours & Tastings) and Villa Rufolo (in Ravello). There's much more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, take some stellar pictures from Il Sentiero Degli Dei, take in the spiritual surroundings of Cloister del Paradiso, and ponder the design of Fontana sant'Andrea.
