Liguria has more Blue Flag beaches than any other region in Italy, so prepare to be dazzled by the many spectacular sandy spots dotting this famously pretty coastline. The beaches of Liguria are as varied as anywhere in Italy, with some hidden away in coves no bigger than a yacht, and others stretching for miles beneath dramatic hills and past coastal caves. From the Cinque Terre’s Monterosso to pretty Portofino, and from unspoilt Sestri Levante to the broad sandy swathe of Alassio, the region’s beaches are dotted along nearly 200 miles of coastline and provide endless opportunities for lounging in the sun. Be sure to get your spot early in the day, as many of the most popular beaches can get busy, especially during summertime.
