Malpasso beach

No reviews


The Malpasso beach is located in the hamlet of Varigotti, in the municipality of Finale Ligure, in the province of Savona and in the Riviera di Ponente. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Liguria, composed of sand mixed with small pebbles, which extends for about three hundred meters after the Baia dei Saraceni . The Malpasso beach is a well-maintained stretch of free beach framed by white rock cliffs. The sea is crystalline blue with emerald green shades, very clear and transparent, so much so that it has earned the Blue Flag for several years. The seabed is low and slopes gently for the first few meters, making this beach suitable for families with children and less experienced swimmers. The Malpasso beach is always very crowded during the summer months, although never overcrowded, thanks to its size. The very rich seabed makes this beach much loved by scuba diving and snorkeling enthusiasts, for interesting species of flora and fauna present. In the evening the sun colors the rocks of a deep pink, and the show is romantic at best. For our four-legged friends, there is a place where they can freely access, a Dog Beach located near the Guardia di Finanza barracks, in Finale Ligure, on Lungomare Augusto Migliorini. The only sore point that can be pointed out by describing this beautiful beach is the parking topic, as the parking behind the beach is already saturated in the early hours of the morning, so it would be advisable to arrive by bus that takes the route between Novi Ligure and Finale Ligure, leaving the car in peace and security. The Malpasso beach is reachable along the state road 1 Via Aurelia and follow the indications to Malpasso near Varigotti, while the parking is located on the ancient railway track. The Malpasso beach offers the possibility of renting sunbeds and umbrellas, there are also refreshment points, showers and cabins. The alternative is to pay for entry to the beach and bring your own equipment from home.
