Western Liguria, with the provinces of Savona and Imperia, includes the Palm Trees Riviera and the Flowers Riviera. It comes with numerous wide and shallow gulfs and bays, which allowed for the formation of sandy or gravelly beaches. The variety of shades and colors is one of the most significant reasons for holidaying in this stretch of coast. The alternation of small bays, long, deep strands, pebble beaches, allows even the most demanding to find the perfect setting for your relaxing days. Visiting Western Liguria means savoring its history, the beauty of its valleys, its narrow streets, its stone houses with their typical pastel tones, its lush Mediterranean vegetation, its olive trees terraces, all of which provide the framework for a picture painted with a thousand colors.
Thanks to the famous mild climate, this stretch of coast is wonderful throughout the year, allowing you to spend delightful days with pleasant walks along the wide sandy beaches of Alassio, Spotorno, Finale Ligure, Varigotti, Varazze and Celle Ligure. Or you can choose the beautiful beaches of the Flowers Riviera, such as Ospedaletti, Arma di Taggia, Diano Marina, San Bartolomeo al Mare, or the taste of noble towns like Bordighera and Sanremo, dotted with beautiful exotic gardens and ancient villas; and if you go higher you can find, hidden between the valleys, the medieval towns of Dolceacqua, Apricale, perched on mountains with unspoilt landscapes. The sea is very clean everywhere, and many resorts in the Ligurian Riviera have been awarded Blue Flags throughout the years (Liguria is in fact the Italian region with the most Blue Flags). You can add to this natural paradise the advantages of receptive organization and first-order entertainment, always in absolute respect of the environment. With its hotels, apartment-hotels, campgrounds, restaurants, beaches, the Western Riviera meets everyone's needs (families, young people, couples, seniors): cinemas, discos, clubs on the beach, bars, pizzerias, playgrounds, gardens, large pedestrian areas, ice-cream shops await you everywhere, inside the small fishing villages or along the coast.
