Inside, the church houses a precious silver icon of Saint Luke. The glorious Marina di Praia beach sits at the end of a wild valley of steep and deeply eroded cliffs with deep, blue water at their base, perfect for scuba diving. It is guarded by the ancient Torre a Mare, once necessary to fend off marauding pirates; these days the piracy is probably more related to sunbathing space.
At night, the beach comes to life with the famous L’Africana nightclub located in caves sunk deep into the cliff. Praiano’s other beach is La Gavitella, one of the Amalfi Coast’s only west facing beaches which basks in sunshine all day long.
