Well in August the temperature of the water is going to be warm and the air probably very .. August is the hottest month of the year but usually at the end of the month it stasts to cool down
Regarding the beach I haven't been there recently but there shoud be free beaches.. I just think there is a ticket to pay to visit CT national park but not expensive (feweuros)
From hotel colonnina to beaches there are 100 metres!
You can have private beaches and also free beaches.
I live close to hotel Colonnina!
We are taking our first visit to Europe and will be in Monterosso June 16th for 3 or 4 nights.. but we cannot find accomodations anywhere... we have emailed, faxed, or called many places.. Do you have any suggestions. We know this is a busy time for Europe in general but do not have flexiblity on the dates. There are 4 of us. 3 college students and one mom :)
I would appreciate any direction/help you can give me.
sailing on by,
My hubby and I will also be in Monterosso around the same time you are-- we are staying at Hotel Pasquale. Have you tried them? Rick Steve's recommends. Every room has a view. Otherwise, you may check Hotel Baia in the new section of Monterosso. I have heard this time of year, air-conditioning is not a necessity, so don't let hotels w/o AC discourage you.
