Florence, Italy, June 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Liguria is a beautiful region located on the North-West of Italy, just by the sea.
It is famous all around the world as the “Italian Riviera,” very popular for having deep blue sea with crystal-clear water, cliffs and wonderful beaches and bays.
Liguria boasts of a 300-km-long coastline with a wide choice of sandy beaches, coves and rocks throughout the whole region. It is a quiet, little paradise where visitors love to spend their relaxing holidays in the heart of nature.
In Riviera di Levante, visitors may find many charming old seaside villages and towns in Golfo del Tigullio surrounded by hills and green unspoilt vegetation, like for example Portofino, a seaside lying in a natural bay.
Other very famous Liguria beaches are those of Cinque Terre, which are very small but beautiful, most of them made up of pebbles and rocks. Cinque Terre are five villages perched on tall cliffs and are part of a protected area that ensures conservation of local architecture and landscapes. As a matter of fact, amazing beaches, beautiful cliffs and crystal sea water made Cinque Terre one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Other noteworthy Liguria beaches are located in the so-called “Gulf of the Poets” in La Spezia, where many charming towns rise, like Lerici, Tellaro, San Terenzo, Porto Venere, Fezzano or Le Grazie. Here the sea is really wonderful and the landscape by day or night uses to leave visitors open-mouthed.
Still in the East part of Liguria Region, it is possible to find one of the most beautiful beaches in La Spezia archipelago including three islands: Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto, but visitors have to remember that it’s possible to visit only Palmaria island, because the others are protected and property of Italian navy.
In addition, other beautiful beaches in Liguria are San Fruttuoso beach in Camogli, Paraggi beach, the Baia del Silenzio in Sestri Levante, the Baia dei Saraceni in Varigotti and La Spiaggia in Zoagli, all of them located very close to the capital of Liguria, Genoa.
Liguria has another archipelago of islands placed in the Riviera di Ponente: for example the Gallinara Island, which is placed near the city of Savona. In the province of Savona, it is also possible to visit the Island of Bergeggi, with a natural environment including the Mediterranean forests and cliffs.
So, visitors in Liguria will be spoilt for choice with the wide set of beaches where it’s easy to spend both relaxing and enjoyable moments.
