This is a truly beautiful bay with stunning houses in the hills surrounding it. Best appreciated in spring and autumn. It's heaving in July & August. Nice sandy beach with clear water. It's the most beautiful beach in sestri by far. In the summer either you go very early or late in the evening for a pre dinner drunk.

We used this beach several times during our stay in June, it wasn't that busy at the time. Swimming in the sea was delightful and there was a great atmosphere with plenty of locals using the beach

I was delighted to visit Sestri Levante. Bay of silence is in human scale. A small bay sorrounded by beautiful little buildings. The sea was good, but perhaps not the greatest I have seen.

The beach was groomed with peddlers selling coconut slices, dresses and more. Church bells were chiming and the sea glass was everywhere! The Anderson festival was going on and live music started at sundown

This bay (which Hotel Helvetia is situated on) is really pretty, with beautiful coloured buildings lining the curved and sandy bay.

Such a pretty area. It was busy when we visited because of the Adersen festival but this just added to the lovely atmosphere

Beautiful and very peaceful. Our friends got married overlooking the bay last weekend. Seemed a little busy and will probably get even busier at the height of summer, but well worth a stroll there in the morning or early evening.

We stayed here in April and were very impressed by the Silent Bay: it is very picturesque, hiking to the Cappuccini Curch was such a peaceful ride and gave you plenty of time to enjoy different views.
