The nearest beach is in Bonassola; it’s one of the most beautiful beaches of the Riviera di Levante. In summer, from mid-May to late September, there’s a public free part, a private part with admission fee and an equipped part where only beach chairs and umbrellas must be paid. It can be reached by car (about 30 minutes, 9 km) or on foot, 30 minutes walk on a beautiful path in the wood. From mid-June to early September there’s a bus service between Montaretto and Bonassola.

In Framura, a little farther on foot (40/50 minutes), there are Portopidocchio beach, the cove in one of the pictures below and Vallà and Arena beaches, reachable on a pathway full of charm along the cliff. Also Framura can be reached by car in about 20 minutes (5 km).

If you like reef, diving and snorkelling, in 25/30 minutes on a track in the wood, you can get to The Scà, the amazing wild cove reachable only on foot or by boat that you can see in the last picture below.

Advice for all tracks. Even if there are no specific difficulties, hiking shoes are recommended and consider that we are 170 meters on the sea level, so the way back is all uphill!

The Poggio del Salice is right halfway on the coast track between Bonassola and Framura. The track, marked SVA in the hiking maps, runs high on the steep rocky coast which characterises the last stretch of the Riviera di Levante. Most of the way is deeply immerged into the woodland with its peculiar glimpsed landscapes and breathtaking views. A total immersion in the pristine wilderness. The walking time to Bonassola or Framura is between 30 and 45 minutes.

An extensive network of tracks between Bonassola, Framura, Levanto and the inland is available for all kinds of hikes, from the most simple and relaxing to the more challenging and fulfilling. The information and cartographical material is at your disposal in the apartments.

The Cinque Terre National Park is very close and the best way to get there is by train or by boat.
Monterosso, the first town of Cinque Terre, is only 5 minutes away by train from Levanto and the trains run very frequently, at least one every 30 minutes.
If you want to reach the Cinque Terre not using the car, you can walk down to the Bonassola train station (about 30 minutes) and then take the train (10 minutes to Monterosso).
Most of the boats leave from Monterosso, but there are two boats every day that leave from Levanto. The boat allows you seeing the Cinque Terre and Portovenere in the same day.
The entrance in the villages is free, while to walk on the tracks in the Cinque Terre Park you must buy an entrance ticket. Further information about tracks and rates are available on the site www.parconazionale5terre.it
