How to reach us The meeting point is at our sports center in Niasca, in the Bay of Paraggi. 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). Here are some suggestions on how to reach us: By train The train station of Santa Margherita Ligure/Portofino is reachable from Milan (2 h 30 min), from Genoa (45 min), from Pisa (2 h). You may then continue walking, by bus, boat or taxi. By bicycle You can easily rent a bike - normal and electric bike - in our new outdoor sports center in Santa Margherita Ligure. Rental of bicycles - and other equipment - is by reservation, find out how to book your equipment! By bus With the n. 82 line from the train stations of Santa Margherita Ligure or from Rapallo.
