The Lerici Lido has the air of a bygone era! You almost wait to see the grand Dames to have their hats and fancy swimming costumes. Although, today's beach life is a bit different with girls in tiny bikinis. Rich Italians buy their season tickets from year to year, costing a fortune. If you want to get one, you would probably need to wait a long time.
Getting a day pass. If you are not there by 9 am you will probably told that it is fully booked. Than you look onto the empty rows of dark blue beds and ask 'How come? Then you are told that those empty beds are reserved for the owners.
Once you are lucky enough to get in having paid a princely sum, you will be shown to your bed and start the day. It goes like this.
Stroll up to the restaurant and have an espresso with a small pannini.
Go back to your luxurious bed and rest, read and enjoy the scenery, which is breath-taking as the Lido looks over Lerici Castle this side and Portovenere on the other side of the bay.
A very warm and shallow water is waiting for you with golden sand. The water is so clean, you can hardly believe it. They proudly have the 'Banderia Blu' badge, which is awarded to clean beaches on a yearly basis. Lots of children and granny's are enjoying the shallow end. You can go further in and have a good swim. Lunch is a light salad, pizza. The afternoon is spent by reading and enjoying the beautiful scenery and of course the sun set is perfect! Now as for the facilities, they are cleaned non-stop. The golden sand is raked and cleaned every morning and after the day everything is washed down and left in perfect order for the next day!
It is a joy to use this special place and appreciate its position, water quality and its services
