Known historically as a fishing village, Santa Margherita has been transformed by tourism into a valued holiday seaside resort. Famous today as the “Pearl of the Tigullio Gulf”, Santa Margherita sees a harmonious integration of the urban landscape and the tourist harbor with nature.

The picturesque village of Portofino is a small jewel immersed in the natural context of the regional park to which it gives its name. Located on the eastern cape of the headland, Portofino is a place of great tourist interest. Its tall and colorful houses disposed in semicircle and overlooking the main square and the marina are surrounded by hills covered with olive trees. The entire perimeter of the park is characterized by wild cliffs, small inlets, caves and solitary beaches, mostly accessible only from the sea.

Cala degli Inglesi, the inlet that interrupts the wild coast between San Fruttuoso and Portofino, constituting the outlet of the Ruffinale valley, is one of the wildest and most spectacular places on the whole promontory. The cove is characterized by spectacular conglomerate cliffs. Given the rough terrain and the lack of a real beach, if you want to swim in Cala degli Inglesi water shoes are essential.

The tiny village of San Fruttuoso – dominated by the Church, the Abbey and the Tower – is located in the heart of the Park of Portofino. Reachable only on foot or by sea, this place retains an intense charm thanks to the great naturalistic value in which the very few buildings have been builded. San Fruttuoso is a mystical and regenerating place thanks to its small beach and the almost total absence of noise, the rocks that surround the inlet, the Mediterranean vegetation that rise steeply up the hill and the intense blue colors of the sea. During summertime, diving in this corner of paradise is also an excellent opportunity to visit the Christ of the Abyss, a statue placed on the bottom of the bay in 1954, also visible snorkeling or simply aboard your canoe.
