Where is this little paradise?

A beautiful paradise near Camogli in Liguria set in the Tigullio Gulf.

YOU can easily access San fruttuoso by boat or hike from Camogli or from Portofino while enjoying the nature of Portofino National Park.

Both hikes take about an hour.

Possibly on the way back YOU might appreciate the possibility of paying circa 7 eur and getting back by boat.

Many places on the Italian coastline of the Italian Riviera such as San Fruttuoso, Punta Chiappa or Portofino are much easier  to explore by boat.
