Beach holidays in Cinque Terre

Italy beach holidays

Our holidays in Cinque Terre offer the ultimate beach holiday experience, with a diverse coastline featuring small bays, all surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Ligurian Sea. 

The region is characterised by its charming seaside villages, where rows of brightly coloured buildings hug the rugged coastline. We absolutely love the clusters of multi-coloured houses - a stunning contrast to the backdrop of majestic mountains.

Monterosso boasts two long beaches with sand and pebbles, including the famous Fegina beach with its iconic rock formation and vibrant umbrellas. Or for a quieter and more secluded option, you can head to the old town beach and Spiaggia Tragagia, near the small harbour of Monterosso. It's just a few steps from the historical centre, or a quick ferry ride away. This peaceful and serene beach provides the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the main beaches.
