In the Maiori's port, medium and small boats have an important space, in line with the tourist vocation of the town. During the summer, hydrofoils and fast motorboats arrive and depart from / to Salerno, Capri and the nearby towns of the Amalfi Coast. Maritime connections are a valid alternative to road traffic and together with yachting contribute to the fortunes of the area.

To Amalfi it takes about 20 minutes.
In Minori it takes about 5 minutes.
The tourist port allows the mooring of medium-small boats and provides boaters with a fair number of services.

Maiori has lost much of its historical settlement. In 1954 the flooding of the Reginna Major stream destroyed the town and the preservation of the more traditional architectural elements was not taken into great consideration in the reconstruction.
This doesn't mean that there's nothing to see. In fact, from the beach (the largest on the Amalfi Coast), to the Castle of San Nicola, passing through the churches (especially the Collegiate Church of Santa Maria a Mare) and the Sentiero dei Limoni from which you get to Minori, the attractions are not lacking.
Special mention for gastronomy. Especially during the summer, the town hosts high level gastronomic events. Among the local specialties, pay attention to the aubergine with chocolate, to which a festival is dedicated in the first week of August.
