If you would like to spend a relaxing day at the sea, not so far from Loano, we can suggest you some charming free beaches, where also families with kids can relax and have fun.
Capo San Donato beach – Finale Ligure (distance: 9 km)
Coming from Loano along the Via Aurelia, after the tunnel at the end of Finale Ligure, you find the Beach Capo San Donato.
We suggest you to park the car before the tunnel and walk along the promenade
to reach the free beach close to the clear and gleaming sea. Close to the beach you find huge rocks plunging into the sea,
over which two towers, Tower Caviglia and Castelletto stand.
In the beach you can have a shower and and you can refresh yourself
in one of the bars nearby (opened in the summertime).
The new wooden panoramic promenade streches along all the Cape
and reaches the little tourist Harbour of Finale Ligure.
Baia dei Saraceni – Varigotti (distance: 13 km)
Baia dei Saraceni is a fantastic natural bay between Punta Crena and Capo Noli.
It is very appreciated for its particularly shallow and very sandy depth,
for its crystal clear water and for the rocks falling sheer to the sea.
In the eastern part of the coast the seabed is rocky.
The beach is very small in front of the colourful small houses of the village.
To the westside the Baia dei Saraceni is closed by a 10 mt high rock: here the water is crystal clear,
on the sandy depth you can walk towards the open sea.
You can reach the beach just from an only little path from the main road Via Aurelia, after the tunnel of Varigotti.
/ On the other side of the Via Aurelia, you find a big parking place by payment.
Before Capo Noli, another wonderful beach streches for hundreds metres.
Malpasso beach - Varigotti (distance: 14 km)
The free equipped beach of Malpasso, between Varigotti and Capo Noli,
is one of the most attractive place of the Riviera.
It is very similar to the close beach of Saraceni, but here the beach is wider, between two big cliffs.
The seabed is soft and sandy and not deep: you can walk 30 metres from the seashore.
On the other side of the main road, via Aurelia, you can park the car in a big parking place with fee.
You can also reach the beach by bus (bus stop of Malpasso).
You can have a break in the bar on the beach (open in summertime).
Little bays of Capo Noli (distance: 15 km)
If you drive beyond Malpasso, before Noli, and you look under the main road,
you can notice little enchanting bays, which you can reach only walking along narrow paths along the cliff:
we suggest you to wear training shoes.
This area is also very nice to do snorkeling.
After only few metres from the seashore you can admire many fishes and plants.
