If you ware visiting the Italian Rivera, you must stop here. There are some lovely public beaches- keep walking around the bay, snorkelling areas, good restaurants, delicatessens and coastal walking routes.

Less than15 minutes walk from Rapallo anda couple of lovely public beaches. The private beaches are cheaper than in Rapallo and a very quaint but very small town.
