The Cinque Terre--Bonassola

1:40:00 PM Unknown 1 Comments

This is a photographic journey of our day in Bonossola, the beach town recommended to us by our Italian landlords in Vernazza.  The nice thing about this beach, it was local--no tourists here.  Like all towns along the coast you have to wind your way down to the beach from the mountain road above.  There is a large paid parking lot (€1.50/hr) right in front of the beach, but get there early to ensure a spot!

We are used to sandy beaches, so pebble beaches are new to us, but we love them!  No sand sticking to your feet or towels and no mess tracked back up into the car.  Eden did lament that she couldn't build sand castles.

I watched as the boy in the water jumped off the boulders, but his buddies chickened out.  The area is great for climbing rocks and exploring with a kayak.
