Finale Ligure Beaches - The Best in Liguria

by Douglas

I am retired now yet reading of Finale Ligure on your site has brought back many a fond memory to me of my younger days and happy happy times.


When I was a young chap at university I spent one entire summer loitering along the Ligurian coast with most of that time being spent in Finale.

In those days Finale had the best nightlife in all of Liguria and best beaches too, it was pretty good value too although we mostly stayed in youth hostels in those times. My son, who is just back from a holiday in Finale, tells me that little has changed over the years.

I do so remember those steps you write about and many were the occasions that I walked up to the top, with my girlfriend of the time in tow, after an evening on the town.

The view is one of the best views of the coast as I recall. Wouldn't I love to be able to do that walk again but I am afraid I am a little past it now, still all is not lost and I am in relatively good health for my age so I shouldn't grumble.

This summer I am planning my return to Liguria. The old ladies of Liguria had better watch out because I am going to be back!!

On a more serious note though if I do need any help with planning my trip would you mind dreadfully if I asked you for a little advice?

Andrew's reply: You are most welcome to ask for any advice and I am very happy to help wherever I can.

I too remember very well the youth hostels in Finale, I stayed at the one in the castle many years ago and loved it although many was the time I cursed those steps at the end of a long night out.

I am a long way past my youth nowadays and when I am in Finale I now stay at the excellent Hotel Moroni but if I was much younger I wouldn't hesitate to stay at that same youth hostel on the hill again - unbelievably it is still going after all these years.

The beaches in Finale too are just as good as they ever were.

One last thing, I will make sure I tell the old ladies of Liguria to stay indoors this summer warning them that Douglas will be back in town:)
