Today it attracts visitors from all over the world, attracted by its crystalline seas, awarded with the Blue Flag for cleanliness, and by enchanting views.
The main attraction, of course, is represented by the sea and the views: the main beach of Praiano is the small and charming Marina di Praia, which is
located at the end of the wild Praia valley, surrounded by cliffs marked by erosion. The graceful and cylindrical Torre a Mare, with its medieval structure against pirate attacks. it stands on a promontory, still guarding the city and the coast for centuries.

It is accompanied by a squat square bell tower and is decorated with hand-painted majolica, a traditional craft of the entire Amalfi Coast.
