We especially enjoyed dining by the water's edge and strolling the streets of the town. Our restaurant jutted out between local's boats covered with colorful blue and white striped tarps. As it gets dark, the town's lights sparkle on the water and the surrounding hills darken against sky. A full moon appeared just above them as we enjoyed the view... More

We stayed in Sestri Levante for two nights, so we were able to visit the Bay of Silence during the day and night. During the day/evening there were Italian families with small children swimming & playing on the beach, while older residents drank espresso/wine in the cafes lining the beach. At night, its equally breath taking with all the lights... More

Such a nice small beach with beautiful views. The reason I'm giving this an average rating is because the water was not as nice as so many other beaches in Italy. Maybe because it was a bay, the water was not clear and blue. But great for sunbathing.

The Silent Bay it's absolutely stunning; one the the most beautiful corner I've ever been to. The sea is clean. Spectacular,
Bad things: if you're not staying in Sestri Levante. There's a lot of space for parking, but it costs 2,00€/hour Get there the earliest possible - yes, it does get crowded! Even if we didn't visited in a sunny day,... More

We came here on the last full day of our 10-day vacation in Ligurian to board the trimaran, Muffulo, from Silentbay Charter (Simone), which was an absolute highlight of our trip to Italy! We spent a couple of hours sunning on one of the public sections of this nice and sandy beach. The location is charming and romantic! After our... More

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.

Lovely views, good fish, great weather. I have always wanted to visit the Ligurian coast, and was not disappointed.

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. Anyway, It's not for the sea rather than for the overall atmosphere. The place is overcrowded during daytime, but a wonder in early morning. We went... More
