“Best for Cinque Terre!”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Levanto turned out to be the perfect place for exploring Cinque Terre. First of all it has the best beach - long, wide, and sandy, not rocky. We stayed in Levanto and loved everything about it as it was less crowded, just as charming, less expensive, full of amenities (including an affordable, well-stocked grocery store and laundromat near the beach by the park), great restaurants, train and boat stops, a calmer harbor, beautiful sunsets, friendly people, and the main area is on flatter ground - a real plus for senior citizens. We saw several groups hiking the hills that surround Levanto, so one can choose what kind of terrain they want to explore. The walk from the train station was too far for us, but younger tourists would be able to manage it. Our hotel sent a taxi for us, included with our reservation (Hotel Garden.).

“Late afternoon surfing”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

When conditions are 'right' (late afternoons) the surfers appear. As many as 20 can be seen on a good day providing for an amusing beach visit.

“Great sunsets”
Reviewed 25 October 2013

The Ligurian sea was a beautiful silver in October. We liked walking the promenade in both directions and sitting and eating gelati watching the sun set. If you head towards the tunnels, take the ladder steps down and walk around the cliff, there are a few rock pools, full of beautiful colored stones and little fish. The water is clear and clean.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Automn Time. Waves! Great and still clean water. For swimmers, Kajak, Surfers. We had fun. For snorkeling better visit some of the more stoney beaches. Levanto is pretty sandy. And... we visited all the beach bars and had great fun.
