Ospedaletti Beach and Holiday Town
Aug 2015
Ospedaletti – I travel to Ospedaletti almost every year. I try to avoid the months of July and early and mid August because of the high volume of crowds. Sadly despite the re-vamp of the town, Ospedaletti has lost its beauty. It is now infested with rats. Because of the new layout, sewers are open into the town leading to the sea promenade, and almost into one of the restaurants. The sewer smell is unbearable. The local government and mayor unfortunately are further murdering the town by levying very high taxes on tourist. It is impossible to park and if you find a space you have to pay €7 per day to go to the sea and beach. If you want a quiet night’s sleep listening to the sea lapping the shore don’t go to Ospedaletti. Go to Bordighera. The creation of the promenade has meant that kids, youths are up to well gone 1 o’clock in the morning screaming and shouting and this carries to the town. Also the town permits local bars and restaurants to have live music which goes on into the early hours of the morning. It almost impossible to sleep at night. The town which was once kept clean is now dirty, hence the rats. All the restaurants open to the sidewalks and have alfresco tables – again hence the rats. Another thing you will notice is that there are no shops other than the basic supermarket, perhaps a hairdresser and chemist. All the shops have closed down. If you want to shop you need to go to Bordighera or Sanremo. Restuarants: The Golfo di Napoli is an excellent restaurant/pizzeria. Has alfresho dining also. Its pizzas are fantastic and its fish dishes excellent. Another good restaurant is Gattano and Rosy. The dishes are very imaginative, I loved the polpo and pattate and gnocchi al pesto – very good helpings – but they do not accept credit cards. The Alexandar Ice Cream pallor is very good, it also has a massive TV for sports fans. The restaurant however looks dated and has had its day. It has a basic menu but the prices are very, very high. Try to avoid Il Cantucio opposit the beach area. This restaurant which offers a set menu is a rip off. If they can avoid giving you your meals they will. Dinners are just seen as euro bills, they slap you down, slap some mush in front of you and grab your money. A good place to go and sunbath is , Bagni Sirena. Il Versiliesi and La Playa establishments. Il Versiliesi may not seem much but the beds are nice well kept, the restaurant is good, the bar is good, the facilities are good and Pietro make it a project to come and speak with you and involve you in the activities – if you want. I would recommend them highly. Bagni Sirena are at the end of the town near the new port, less crowded but the sea has big rocks.
