Monterosso is the largest village of the Cinque Terre. It’s the one with a stunning stretch of beach right in town. Monterosso is a favorite among young travelers, couples and families.

It is the village with the longest and widest beaches of the 5 hamlets. Most of these beaches are well managed and euipped, providing umbrellas, sun chairs and showers services. Monterosso actually strecthes along its beaches, only split into two parts, Fegina and Monterosso Vecchia, by the Cappuccini Friars promontory. Fegina is the “newest” area mainly built starting from 1950’s on (with the exclusion of old Villas such as Villa Montale), while Monterosso Vecchia is the oldest part with building dating back to medieval times, such as those in Buranco area.

Monte props MapThe entire village is lively all time of the year. Spring, Summer and early Autumn months are of course the most sparkling and bubbling in Monterosso: fun and activities are always guaranteed!
