How to reach us

Outdoor Portofino operates both in the Portofino Park and in the Cinque Terre National Park. Below, you can find information on how to reach the locations.

NIASCA - PORTOFINO PARK

Outdoor Portofino’s main office is located in Niasca in the bay of Paraggi between Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino. The sandy beach is inlayed in the green Mediterranean scrub which, only in this area which is sheltered from sea storms, it arrives to touch the water. The entire bay of Paraggi, famous for the green intense color of its waters, is delimited by buoys inside which navigation is forbidden, guaranteeing safety to swimmers and yachtsman. The activities take place within the Portofino Park and its marine protected area.

How to reach Niasca:

By train
The train station of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino is reachable from Milan (2h30min), from Genoa (45 min), from Pisa (2 h). You may then continue walking, by bus or taxi.

By bus
With the n.82 line from the train stations of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino and Rapallo.

Walking

  • From Portofino: approx. 10 min.
  • From S. Margherita Ligure: approx. 30-40 min.
  • From Camogli: through the trails of the Portofino Park.


By car
Highway A12 (Genova – Rosignano), exit in Rapallo, continue towards Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino. Once in Santa Margherita L. continue towards Portofino until the bay of Paraggi. Passed the inlet of the bay, after 200m on the left you will find a sandy beach where Outdoor Portofino is located. This area has very limited parking areas, especially during summertime. In Paraggi there is a paid parking lot, but we suggest to reach our office by alternative means (bus, boat, bicycle) or walking from Portofino (about 10 minutes) or S. Margherita L. (about 40 minutes). Given the problems of parking and traffic, for those who decide to reach us the car, play in advance!

 

MONTEROSSO - CINQUE TERRE

Outdoor Portofino also has a base in Monterosso at Bagni Fegina. The activities take place within the Cinque Terre National Park, with its 3,868 hectares, is one of the smallest and at the same time most populated National Parks in Italy, with its around 4,000 inhabitants divided into five villages: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare. In more than one thousand years man modified this natural environment by sectioning the steep slopes to obtain stretches of cultivable land, the so-called "ciàn", supported by thousands of kilometers of dry-stone walls. This is Cinque Terre's real characterizing feature, with an atypical and strongly anthropized landscape: this is the reason why the territory of the men's Park established in 1999 has become a World Heritage in 1997.

How to reach Monterosso:

The area, rather crowded throughout the year, does not have large parking space. The easiest and fastest way to get there is by train, Monterosso al Mare stop. Leaving the station of Monterosso, turn right and walk for approx. 250m, keeping the sea on the left. You will meet Bagni Fegina on the left; the guide awaits you inside with kayaks!
