The bay of Niasca – from where the tours starts – is located inside the bay of Paraggi. 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 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.
