I must confess that when I added the Cinque Terre to my trip itinerary in Italy, I have never expected to discover such wonderful beaches there.
I just wanted to admire the amazing landscapes created by the perfect union between the sea and the high cliffs and all those famous colorful houses which embellish the entire coastline.
It was a great surprise for me to discover that the lovely territory of the Cinque Terre hides several wonderful small bays and beaches. Monterosso Beach is considered the most beautiful beach in the area and it is also my favorite one.
Situated in the village with the same name, this beach is simply charming thanks to the blend between the fine sand and the clear blue water.
Also known as Fegina Beach, this beach is the only sand-covered beach in the area of the Cinque Terre. The long stretch of sand, embellished with a few stones of various shapes and sizes, together with the picturesque mountain landscape, creates a spectacular scenery.
You should know that Monterosso Beach is pretty crowded especially in summer, because it is the most beautiful and accessible beach in the area.
So, in case you are looking for a quiet beach away from the hustle and bustle of big cities, Monterosso Beach is not a good option. The advantage is that it’s really easy to get to this beach because it is located just in front of the train station.
Monterosso Beach is equipped with deck chairs and umbrellas, which can be rented by the tourists. Whether you choose to try one of the common beach activities or simply rest under the sun rays, both options are perfect in case you want to relax in the middle of a beautiful scenery.
