Glimpses of the Mediterranean.
Santa Margherita Italian tourist resort near Portofino, if you walk from Santa Margherita you will be amazed by the beautiful homes and wonderful views of the Mediterranean sea. It only takes an hour or so and is quite spectacular.

A delightful one hour walk between Santa Margherita & Portofino.

So many beautiful homes
Santa Margherita Ligure is a fair-sized town; large enough not to seem smothered by the tourism which has been an integral part of the town’s existence for decades. The harbor mainly caters for luxury yachts, but the town is also home to a small fishing fleet which can be seen unloading opposite the morning fish market. There are wide ranges of hotels and restaurants, and many good day trips to make if you get tired of wandering along the laid back seafront.
Pebbles on the beach
Sunbathing on the rocks.
Grab yourself a comfortable rock. 🙂
Relaxing on the rocks in Santa Margherita.
I wonder if there is room on that towel for me? 🙂
The Lido Palace is in the top location.
This guy loves pasta & pizza.
But like me hates exercise.
They really know how to make pizza in Italy.
Ferry between the towns.
I walked to Portofino & caught the ferry back.
My hotel offered good price and excellent restaurant. For the budget minded like myself it makes more sense to stay in Santa Margherita and visit Portofino on foot or by ferry. The Lido Palace is on the beach if you want to go upmarket, my hotel was one block back and reasonable priced, with free car parking,
A very good restaurant here that seems to specialise in home cooked style food.
Thanks for visiting my Santa Margherita Italian tourist resort photo blog.
