It is a place to swim with a shoals of fish and with star fish in a water with turquoise color. It is a real water paradise. The view of the nearest city and mountains on sunset is a stunning moment. It is a place to feel like in a hidden island even only for two days. There is rock as a beach. The dip in that water is like to fall down in acquario. You should absolutely take a look with a water mask, it is a must to vist this place:)!

Just woooow! Small fisherman village on the italian riviera, just perfect to sit down and have a glass of wine and relax after visitinf and running around. All the bars go really out to accomodate you. Hospitality just great - we visited Baracuda bar - great location, realxing scenery....

We are in our sixties, and with a little huffing and puffing and an occasional...”why are we doing this? “” From my husband. In a way he was right we could have been drinking wine and enjoying the beautiful views in Camogli.......but it was wonderful to get out in the countryside and enjoy the views, the old churches and the goats we ran into along the way. The trail was easily marked and there was nothing dangerous about it. You just need the stamina to climb up and up and up, and it helps if the ferry is running and you can take that back.

I caught the train from Genoa (30 minuets) and actually walked Comagli - San Rocco - Ruta - Camogli. The scenery is stunning and the trail is well marked and mostly paved (or cobbled). That said, it isn't easy and you must be reason ably fit - I am 60+ and pretty fit but sections had me puffing d panting and taking short pauses because there are lots of uphills. You also need good footwear because even though it is mostly paved/cobblestoned it is uneven and in a few places reverts to a dirt track. That said, it is well worth the challenge and the spectacular views and opportunity to get out into nature are both major positives.

30-45 Minutes walking-hiking, need good shoes, bring water, it is a great place to see the formation of 150 millions years and for swimming; no crowds, no dumb people - as you realy have to walk back from 0 m upto 250/300 m its is hard, it selects the visitor ;-)

From San Rocco di Camogli a one hour long trail will take you to the beautiful Punta Chiappa: a long rock where you can dive and swim in an amazing transparent sea full of fish inside the Mount of Portofino natural park. Along the way you will find the little church of San Nicolò: a jewel of the XII Century.
Da San Rocco di Camogli un'ora di cammino vi porta a Punta Chiappa: un lungo sperone di roccia dal quale è possibile immergersi nell'acqua trasparente del parco naturale del Monte di Portofino e nuotare fra migliaia di pesci. Lungo il cammino troverete la piccola chiesa di San Nicolò: un gioiello del XII Secolo.

After having studied the reviews we decided this was something for us. First uphill steadily ca 220 meters to San Rocco then down again to the sea at Punta Chiappa. We had planned to take the boat back but it wasn't running due to construction work on the pier. Since February! You can imagine the old ladies in Punt Chiappa catering to tourists were mad. So off we were again up the hill.

This walk starts or ends with the nice Camogli-San Frutuosso ferry ride. Lots of steps, but, unlike the Cinque Terre, the steps are even and easy to navigate. It's a beautiful little hike, past fishing communities and isolated villas, tiny local churches and a chicken farm. Everywhere there are beautiful views of the sea and inhabited hills

I took the ferry from Camogli to Punta Chiappa and then walked to SF from there. It took about 3.5 hours. I'm pretty fit, but I found this walk pretty precarious in parts. The chains were sturdy but I was pretty nervous. There's no cellphone coverage in parts. I'd recommend walking it with others. Make sure you are strong and capable. They describe this walk as dangerous in parts. As much as I found it exhilarating and an adrenaline rush I would get the ferry next time. I would definitely not go near this route if there was ant sign of rain...that would just make it hideous!!

What a place!!! Beautiful and amazing views. We walked from Camogli ruta to Portofino Vetta in the middle of nature. After we reached Strade strette and follow to San Fruttosio when you realise the beautiness of crystal clear blue sea, unfortunately ruined from too many restaurants in 50mt square. Anyway we kept walking the toughest part of our journey to Punta Chiappa, Porto Pidocchio, San Nicolò's Church and finally Camogli beach to then come back to Camogli ruta, all in 5 hours. So much of surprises on the way such climbing points but also very brave young children were doing it. Tired at last but satisfied.
