Favourite Beaches in Lerici

The beaches in Lerici Municipality, Gulf of Poets have so much to offer everyone... from hard to reach secluded pebbly beaches to wide sandy beaches to fully equipped beach clubs catering to your every whim.


For those beach lovers looking for the silence of an isolated beach stretch of coastline, we recommend you head out from Lerici towards Tellaro, all the way up to Bocca di Magra. Here the coastline is rich not only in breathtaking nature walks but in variety of pristine sandy and pebbly beaches.

While places like Punta Bianca, Punta Corvo and the lonely beach Zezzigiola are renowned throughout Italy for their real beauty.

What is true for all of them though is that you cannot but enjoy their beautiful clear waters and the surrounding magical nature as testified by the Blue Flags awarded to the beaches in Lerici by the FEE Italy.

So which one is our favourite? ... Such a hard task to name a single one from so many perfect, yet different, beaches in Lerici...

Beaches in Lerici : Beach San Terenzo


Right across Piazza Brusacà in San Terenzo, just underneath the San Terenzo Castle stretching to the east is the main beach of San Terenzo.

It goes right along the promenade of San Terenzo and is made up of a "free" section as well as a section which is free but also equipped. Here you can rent deckchairs, beds, beach umbrellas, canoes and little rowboats, while the children can easily be entertained in the play area built on the beach for them.

There are lots of bars and restaurants along the town’s promenade, so you will not be short of choice for refreshments and food. Bar Torino also has a few tables on the beach -- you can relax in the shade, and have your meal there while taking in the bustle of the beach and the views of the Bay of Lerici.


And no trip to the beach can be complete without the taste of some ice-cream. We get our daily fix of Italian ice-cream from our favourite ice-cream shop in San Terenzo called “ La Rana Golosa” , right at the corner of Piazza Brusacà beneath the Castle.

Beaches in Lerici - The beaches of Punta Corvo

There are steep trails connecting the country around the village of Montemarcello to the picturesque and secluded beaches of Punta Corvo (more easily accessible via a boat service leaving from Bocca di Magra and Fiumaretta).


Punta Corvo Spiaggione, Liguria Pictures Around 11 secluded beaches are dotted around the coastline in the area


The small beaches are scattered along the harsh coast between village of Montemarcello and the town of Lerici and originated from landslides that were later shaped by the sea.


Punta Corvo Spiagge, Liguria Pictures The beaches are famous for their tranquility and clear water


The beach of Punta Corvo is also called "spiaggione" (big beach) as it is the biggest of them all; its sand is dark grey since it originated from the surrounding stones of the same color. The water is so clear that the rocky sea bottom can be seen at a few meters from the shore.
