A slow tour from Riomaggiore to Manarola and Monesteroli
Levanto, surfing paradise
You can surf in the whole bay, all year round
Name the most famous places in the world for surfing: Australia, Indonesia, California… Cinque Terre! Wait, what?
Levanto is one of the world’s surfing paradises, where you can surf in the whole bay, all year round. Levanto seems to be always crowded with sportsmen from Austria, Switzerland and the north of Italy who come to try out these waves, especially in Winter.
When the sea is rough the danger level is high, with waves up to 4 metres… a challenge for professionals to be faced only if you are well trained! With nothing to envy other famous big wave destinations, for instance Puerto Escondido.
The possibility of surfing in Italy and making surf a popular sport played at the level of football or volleyball is not only pure imagination: we would have everything necessary and a concrete possibility of development!
