Monterosso Hotels on the Beach
Links to Page Contents:
If you want to go to the beach in the Cinque Terre, Monterosso al Mare is certainly the best place to go.
Monterosso has the largest beaches in Cinque Terre, and has the only beaches in Cinque Terre with bathing establishments. Beaches here are sandy and the beach experience is overall more comfortable. As in other Cinque Terre beaches, the water is crystal clear.
Monterosso, Cinque Terre’s largest town, also has a long seafront promenade with shops, restaurants, bars and the like.
The beaches location is convenient, as you find them near the exit of the train station, which is generally the best way to travel in Cinque Terre by land, although an exception can be made for Monterosso: unlike the other, smaller Cinque Terre towns where you normally have to park your car outside the village or town, Monterosso has a number of car parks in town and especially along the beach, with many spaces. Some of their names are Parcheggio Loreto Terrazza, Fegina Parking (with 300 spaces right in front of Fegina Beach, and an area for motorcycles), Monterosso Parking.
Several Monterosso hotels or other accommodation properties, in addition, have their own parking facilities for guests.
In Monterosso beaches there are stretches of public free beach as well as bathing establishments with beach umbrellas and loungers.
Monterosso al Mare’s two main beaches are Fegina Beach, a large sandy beach located a few meters from the station exit, and the beach called Monterosso Old Town Beach, because right behind it is Monterosso historic center: this beach is about a 5-minute walk from the station and about 600 meters from the center, hidden behind a rock wall.
On Via Fegina, the street running along Fegina Beach, there are plenty of accommodation possibilities with hotels, B&Bs and holiday apartments (see Monterosso Hotels on the Beach below).
On Fegina Beach is the Statua del Gigante.
