Beach Day in Cinque Terre

Today is all about relaxing in the region of Cinque Terre and visiting some of the picturesque beaches around these five beautiful villages. Keep in mind that you won’t find sandy beaches in Cinque Terre, but the unique views with colorful cliffside villages make up for it!

Some Suggestions for Beaches:
  • Riomaggiore has a small rocky beach called La Fossola at the starting point of the famous Love Path. It's a bit of a trek, but the waters are pristine and the views breathtaking.
  • In Manarola, there's a beautiful harbor area that has the best deep-water swimming around. 
  • In the harbor of Vernazza, there's a small sandy beach where you can take a swim in the calm waters of the village.
  • Monterosso has a long sandy beach, the perfect place if you're looking for a traditional beach with sand and umbrellas.
  • For more sandy beaches, leave Cinque Terre and head to Lerici, neighboring Fiascherino, or Tellaro (only by car), all opposite Portovenere. Swim in the small cove of Baia Blu or at Cala di Maramozza.
  • Forte dei Marmi, located on the border between Liguria and Tuscany, is a family favorite and very kid-friendly.
