BEST SPOTS TO SNORKEL AND SWIM
Our favourite spots to swim and snorkel in the Cinque Terre area are a few, and are all amazing! Maybe you’ll tell us which one you prefer after a tour on our boat! 😉
The first one is called ‘le Nere’ (‘black rocks’): it’s just off the promontory of Portovenere, and it is characterised by black rock formations; here, as well as in our next great snorkelling spot ‘Le Rosse’ (‘red rocks’), you’ll find two small pebble beaches: you can swim from the boat to the shore in no time, for a fun adventure with your goggles on!
The third amazing spot where we usually stop for a swim is ‘Scoglio Ferale’, which is a huge rock where you can swim, snorkel and explore all around it, and see a huge variety of colourful fish in the waters nearby.
Another fantastic place is ‘Schiara’, where old fishermen houses are anchored to the rocks just above sea level. It’s our favourite spot and we definitely encourage you to dive and explore here too! It’s quite pristine too, since the only way to get here is either by boat or climbing down around 500 steps!
Our last recommendation is ‘Piscine di Punta Pineda’ which are natural sea water pools hidden among the rocks that make up the shoreline; here, as in Schiara, you either come by boat or walking down the steep hills of our riviera: trust us, the more than ONE THOUSAND steps are just not for everybody! Make the easier choice and come on board with us! 😉
