It was once known as Ciappara, a toponym originated by the vernacular ciappa, stone plate; today it is simply the Blue Bay – Baia Blu one of the most beautiful beaches of the Gulf of Poets, nestled between Point Santa Teresa and Point Galera, overlooked by the Falconara Cape and its mediterranean bush – the monumental olive groves, the secular holm oaks – where the precipitous rocks bound into the beach. Porto Venere and the Islands of Palmaria, Tino and Tinetto are just there: what a spectacular view!
The Blue Bay is not an isolated cove though; it’s not about you, the sea and nothing more: it is a fully equipped beach, with all the facilities one might think of – a lift included to make the access easy for those who can’t walk down the track, from the upper road to the beach. There are also a salt water pool, a restaurant, some kids areas: the Blue Bay is the place to be if you have children and you want to enjoy the sea at leisure.
