The map of Liguria Italy below shows the beaches and towns featured in our best beaches in Liguria guide.
Levanto is a great base to explore the eastern part of the coast being right on the doorstep of the fabulous Cinque Terre .
On the western part of the coast a great place to visit is the bit of coast running from San Remo to just before Imperia.
The railway that used to run along this part of the coast, almost on the beach, is now gone. It has been replaced by an amazing jogging, walking and cycling track that runs for over ten miles, with plenty of sandy beaches to stop at dotted along the way.
Don't worry either if you are not a great cyclist, it's all quite level and even my eight year old son managed it easily. For more on this part of the coast visit our guide to Liguria - beaches and towns .
