You can choose a sailboat or a motorboat and enjoy the freedom of being at sea. But, for the ultimate experience, you need a little of both! Rent a catamaran in Liguria and you’ll get to choose between motor or sail.
The extra room created by twin hulls will allow you to enjoy the luxury of a motorboat, while the larger surface area of the catamaran sails, combined with the tendency to go faster thanks to twin hulls, means you’ll be able to get the most out of the light winds in the area.
In short, rent a catamaran in Liguria today and enjoy some of the best beaches and coastline in the world, from the best possible vantage point. Don’t forget, catamarans are usually more stable than a single hull boat, making them a better choice for those new to the world of boating.
If you’re renting a catamaran in Liguria then you need to consider which places you want to visit. Lazily cruising along the coast is a great option that allows you to stop and start at the many secluded coves, you’ll want to get the most out of this experience.
We recommend heading east from Genoa and straight for Cinque Terre. It’s nearly the southernmost point and will take you the best part of the day to get there. But, it’s worth it.
Cinque Terre is the first, and now the smallest, National Park in Italy. It consists of some of the most impressive coastline and 5 medieval villages that appear to be carved into the hill. You can travel between the villages via a small train but you’ll find it very difficult to get to this peninsula without a boat.
Each of the villages has something unique to offer, it’s worth exploring them all.
From here it’s a short jaunt to the southern mist tip of the Ligurian coastline, Portovenere. This sits at the edge of the Gulf of La Spezia and the Gulf of Genoa. There are plenty of castles, churches, and palaces worth looking at. You can even get right up to the lighthouse and enjoy a drink in one of the most unusual places to have a bar!
Cruising back up the shoreline will give you the opportunity to stop at some of the secluded beaches and try snorkeling in the clear waters. The water is generally warm and teeming with aquatic life, making it a fascinating experience.
Spare a few moments to admire the tall pine trees that cascade down the steep slopes, almost touching the sea.
You really will feel like you’re in paradise.
It’s also worth stopping at Portofino, potentially the most famous of all the towns on the Italian Riviera. This is definitely a town designed by designers for the elite. There are plenty of fine dining experiences and designed shopping boutiques. But even if you don't want to spend a fortune, it’s worth taking a look around the town.
You can also check out its neighbor, Camogli, a fishing village that has retained most of its original charm while offering some of the best food in the area.
If you have spare time, head west of Genoa to experience the lesser-known side of the Italian Riviera, these are the most popular areas amongst the Italians!
You also need to allow enough time to explore Genoa itself. It’s the sixth-largest city n Italy and, to put it simply, a delight.
