SEASIDE RESORTS

With its rough and rugged shoreline Portofino Coast represents one the most enchanting parts of the Italian Riviera, always offering breathtaking views. This narrow stretch of land, cradled between the mountains and the sea, dotted with picturesque seaside villages nestled in splendid bays, has captured the hearts of many important visitors over the years and continues to enchant today’s most discriminating travelers.
This part of the eastern Ligurian Riviera, that includes famous destinations such as Camogli, Portofino and its Promontory, Santa Margherita Ligure, Rapallo and Sestri Levante, with its mild climate, represents the perfect holiday resort in all seasons. From Recco to Moneglia, the coast is formed by two large inlets called Paradiso Gulf and Tigullio Gulf, marked by the steep Promontory of Portofino on the west end and by Punta Manara on the east end.
The quaint towns and seaside villages create a unique Mediterranean landscape, where the hues of the sea and the lush vegetation are mirrored in the colors of the typical painted houses and the shimmering clarity of the air is almost tangible. The majestic Promontory of Portofino, an offshoot of the Apennine Mountains, towers above the area at an altitude of 600 metres. Inlets, beaches and little harbours break the steep, rugged shoreline, creating the extraordinarily beautiful scenery which has made this coast famous all around the world.
Numerous seaside resorts still thrive on the typical activities connected with the sea and fishing, as well as the longstanding tradition of hospitality. These resorts are welcoming all year round, offering quality cultural, artistic, gastronomic or sports events.
