Fiascherino Beaches and Cliffs
A succession of steep cliffs overlooking the sea and three large bays characterize the coast between Lerici and Tellaro, where the small village of Fiascherino is placed. Beaches with their expanses of sand or gravel alternate with rocks to lie down on and or dive from into the crystal water.
On the road that runs along the beautiful coast you’ll find many hotesl and restaurants where to find refined hospitality and the typical Ligurian cuisine.
The first large cove is the famous Eco del Mare, renowned seaside resort that has made its large sandy beach a real idyll for body and soul, in which the hot summer days allow all the amenities of an exclusive welcome, capable to pamper visitors, while at sunset turns into a living on the sea, like a literary cafe, welcomes meetings of culture, art, poetry and music.
Continuing on the coast you can meet then, one after the other, two free beaches, which can be reached by stairways immersed in the Mediterranean bush. In the first one you can see, between sand and vegetation, a military bunker of Second World War, located at the end of the bay. Both beaches are characterized by pines, oaks and olive trees that frame the beaches with coarse sand, where you can rent beds, chairs and umbrellas to make more comfortable staying at sea. Numerous coves near the beach, with rocks that emerge from the water, are suitable for those who love a more natural and wild bathing, funning between dipping and climbing or scuba diving and snorkeling.
The landscape then becomes even more amazing when you come into bays by sea: just a small boat to enjoy an unforgettable view of the indented coast and then come to shore swimming or by a dinghy. A few meters from the beach, the clarity and depth of water allow to see fish and small jellyfish, even with the aid of a simple mask, for a unique experience for adults and children.
Historically, these were the beaches of the inhabitants of the village of La Serra above, coming down to the sea from the path that connected the country to the creeks, with a wonderful view of the open sea. These same places fascinated D.H. Lawrence who, between 1913 t and 1914, stayed in Fiascherino, with his companion Frida, attracted by the myth of the Golfo dei Poeti and then charmed by the beauty of this sea.
