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

We toured around most of Europe this past summer and this is certainly how beaches need to be ran. It was clean, easy, warm water and no big waves for my 3 kiddos to have to worry about. We met lovely Italian families and my kids truly got to enjoy the dolce vita. If you are staying for the summer or a long period of time in Lerici ( I would love to, Lerici is perfect!) then you can rent beach closets so you don't have to haul all your beach items to and from your rental.

Clean sandy beach with clear warm water perfect for a dip or even a snorkel. I was swimming here during the last week of October and have always found Lerici to be 4 or 5 degrees C higher than other inland towns and villages. Toilets, changing cabins, showers and sunloungers available only until mid september. During the short Italian Ligurian seaside season for beachgoers, there are a couple of friendly beach cafes open
where you can sit and watch the elegantly dresses trendy Ligurians walking their pooches and relish in a lunch of home cooked torta verdura or a freshly made foccaccia sandwich whilst taking in the summer sun.
Convenient nearby parcheggio a short walk away at 2 euro hourly in june till end september, though charges decrease to just 1 euro hourly thereafter and you may park along the promenade in late autumn, winter and springtime.. I

Amazing view and location, but very mediocre service, very rude and poor breakfast with stale breads.

Gent.ma Sig.ra, ci dispiace che abbia avuto problemi con qualcuno del personale della struttura, ma che nei nostri bar diamo del pane raffermo ai clienti proprio no, non è vero. Provare per credere.

East to reach, easy to park in, easy to walk to the beaches from the car parks. Lots of delicious food in pretty restaurants, seafront and amidst long, curvy streets. Walk to the pier end at Lerici and to the adjacent tiny beaches. The sea here is super clean and warm, so inviting! While away an afternoon gazing at the lovely buildings in Tuscan yellows and oranges, or take the stairs up to the castle, or enjoy yet another scrummy gelato! I really liked this small town, it connected with the romantic in me.
