Where to stay in Riviera di Ponente?

I will travel with my family from Milan to Nice and we are thinking about a small and charming town to stay in Riviera di Ponente. I have read not so good reviews about San Remo. Any suggestions?

Alassio is now the most fashionable place on the Ponente. Finale Ligure is the other larger destination which is both very attractive and popular with families. San Remo has suffered because it does not have natural sandy beaches or even very good beaches.

There are many smaller places which are pleasant, from Andora and Laiguegia at the western end of the most attractive section of sandy coast, through to historic little Noli at the eastern end.

Stopped in Andora on our drive through a couple of weeks ago and thought it was quite charming

Thank you so much for answering.

Considering what you said, now I have to decide between Finale Ligure, Noli and Andora. It seems they fit what I am looking for.

Thanks.
