Took the train from La Spezia to Bonassola to escape the crowds of the Cinque Terre. Overcast day for us, but still a nice beach that wasn’t crowded in the free section. There is a shower but no other amenities that we saw. Probably due...More

Nice selection of bars, restaurants and focaccia shops and good quality store called Bennati if you need any groceries, food, drinks etc - avoid the one opposite called U Gavazzu, they will see you coming if you are a tourist!!

Amazing environment with the mountains that are surrounding the beach. The water is amazing, clear and with a chilly temperature which is needed! Perfect for kids to practise snorkelling! There is a wonderful and maniana pace on the whole beach! The price for renting two...More

The beach is pretty and the water is super clean. The only missing thing would be a free access to shower after the salty water.

Crystal clear water, very nice beach when you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cinque Terre.

This is a hidden gem. I almost hate to reveal it. The crowds are light and the water is crystal clear. It was hard to leave this beautiful, expansive, largely public beach. The cove it sits in frames it perfectly, and the village is large...More

The place itselve is toursitic, but seems to have something from a old-french town. Most beach is private where you can rent out a umberalla with some recycling chairs, but the shores of the beach are public, including all the rocks and a small pier...More

A nice beach at Bonassola, part sandy and part pebbles. Clear water, and nice temperature for swimming (in summer). When we were there in September, the waves were huge the first few days. No problem for strong swimmers, but daunting for others. After a few...More

This is a nice beach in the small town of Bonassola on the Italian riviera. There's a private section were you'll have to pay for sun chairs, and there's also a common section, which is free for everybody. Bonassola is not too crowded (even during...More
