In the heart of the Bay of Lerici, protected from behind by the Marigola hill – with its splendid villa and its lush vegetation – framed by the castles of Lerici and San Terenzo and overlooking the islands of La Spezia archipelago, there is a large and sunny beach of Venere Azzurra.
Uts evocative name well represents the beauty of the place, where its stunning scenery together with the crystal clear waters, the cleanliness of the beach and the excellent level of services offered to bathers, have allowed it to obtain uninterruptedly since 2000 the Blue Flag of the Fee.
Together with the other beaches of Lerici the Venere Azzurra is managed by a company that allows you to have the best deals bathing maintaining free access to the beach. You can spend your day at the beach here, choosing to make use of beds, chairs and umbrellas rented daily, but also rent a pedal boat for a romantic trip off, where to take a bath in the cool and blue water, or watch the coast with all its colorful umbrellas, lulled by the waves away from the clamor of the beach.
The Venere Azzurra beach, however, is not less charming in winter when, facing the balustrade of the upper terrace, on the deserted beach, you can see only the gulls walking, resting after a flight with fishing immersion, in the stormy sea.
You may well remember the words of Mary Shelley, came with her husband on this coast, who wrote: ” The beauty of the place seemed unearthly in its excess: the sea at their feet… A sort of spell around us.
