the Cinque Terre seen from the sea
Have you ever tried to visit a village by the sea? You may see more things than you expect. Especially if you have little time, you can choose to see the Cinque Terre in one day from a beautiful perspective: the Gulf of Poets!

Boat or Raft

For those who want to visit the Cinque Terre in a somewhat unusual way, there is the possibility of seeing the whole bay at a glance: just take off! Each of the villages has a marina where you can take a boat for the whole day or just for a few hours, but the one best equipped to organize a trip to the sea is in Riomaggiore.
Among the best moments for going out on a boat is the late morning, when the beaches are occupied by other bathers: sunbathing away from crowded places or taking a swim offshore, in the crystal clear water, is one of the joys that Liguria offers. If, on the other hand, you don’t feel like relaxing, but you want to go on an excursion, you can choose to go out by boat in the afternoon: the Gulf of Poets has breathtaking seabeds, unexplored coves, beaches accessible only by sea, whose wonders are reserved for the most enterprising! One should not miss, for example, the famous Byron Cave, so called because legend has it that the English poet found inspiration there to compose his verses; it is a cave not very deep nor particularly hidden, whose walls are teeming with crabs and blooming with colored anemones.
If you love sports, you can choose a boat equipped for fishing or get a wetsuit and oxygen tank for scuba diving. If you are hopelessly romantic, rent a small boat for two and go out at sunset, without forgetting to bring with you the Ligurian focaccia and a glass of Sciacchetrà. Nothing deserves to be remembered more than a toast in the Mediterranean, against the background of the sun that plunges into the sea and a sky that is colored with shades of pink.

Book your boat tour: you will discover the hidden side of the Cinque Terre and who knows? it could be the best side!
