The coastline we visited is peppered with beaches and rocky outcrops. Some were more suitable for the kids than others. Some days we bathed on the pebbly beaches and the kids played for hours in the waves. One day we stayed on the small beach at Nervi harbour. Both options were beautiful. Being at the beach was a great contrast to the days we spent exploring the city with a slower pace and less hustle and bustle. We were amazed how long the kids played for and eventually we had to convince them to come home.
We even somehow ended up in the water on the way home from dinner one night. As you do.
