In the Gulf of Tigullio, heart of Liguria, surrounded by blooming vegetation and in front of the Marine Natural Park in Portofino, Santa Margherita is a small paradise surrounded by sea and nature. Well-supplied beaches are accessible on foot or by bike, directly from the historical centre. For all the water-sports enthusiasts there are many activities and services to have fun with: from sailing to rowing and scuba diving.
The places of interest don’t end with the sea and beach: beautiful artistic and historical treasures are waiting for you, like the Castle, built in the 1500 to defend against pirates attacks, or the Basilica of Santa Margherita of Antiochia, which dominates the country with its 17th century tower. A must-see is also the complex consisting of Durazzo-Centurione and San Giacomo mansions, which hosts a beautiful Italian garden with typical Ligurian cobblestone pathways called “risseu”. This will be the starting point to discover your Liguria.
