“Swimming along the coast of the Cinque Terre is a way to experience the sea from the depths of the most varied and rich marine life in the whole of Liguria, surrounded by virtually uncontaminated nature. The coast overhang the sea, with cliffs that often soar vertically and continue even below sea level.
The Cinque Terre has some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Mediterranean, with clean water and a unique coast and bays that can only be reached by sea”.” – cit. Franco Muscarà.
