There are very few places that can compare with Paraggi. Words are not rich enough to express the beauty of this place. A true romantic and elegant spot. We arrived at Paraggi by foot coming from Santa Margherita Ligure. The walk is very scenic, at almost every step you feel the need to stop and "breathe in" the magnificent views. The red carpet that is laid down on the trail, just adds to the excitment and predicts that what you are going to see is not something common. In deed, when you reach Baia di Paraggi you are speachless, the clear, deep blue water seems unreal, so beautiful, you would want to dive right away, start swimming so you can feel that this is happening for real. Absolutely wonderful! Make sure you have plenty of space for taking pictures and videos, that is the only way you can take back home with you something from this true wonder.
The private beach spots were almost sold out " for the season", we were told, but we were lucky to get some beds on the last row. The price was high and the service poor, but as an exception, we did not care at all. We just wanted to spend our day here, no matter what it took. We were so delighted with the water and the surroundings that we postponed lunch. Not a good move because the kitchen at these places close at 4pm, even though, they keep open the bars till 7. We were able to get a quick panini, pretty good actually, that allowed us to continue savoring this place till later on. We went back by foot, but at the first bus stop we were lucky to find the bus ready to go to the town. After a long day at sea, this was a blessing.
We got back to our hotel with only one thought in mind: wow! That was so beautiful! We will look for any chance to get back and spend more time ion this area, it is outstanding.

Keep away from this place if you travel alone, because you cannot rent one sunbed, you must rent two. Stupid.

we paid 140 EUR for the four of us to enter the beach (35 EUR per person). The only thing we got was a towel. Despite the high price paid service was below zero.
We had to serve ourselves from the bar on top of it the lady serving was extremely impolite.
Yes the view was nice and it is a beautiful area, but really the price is not up to the standard.
Very disappointed from the service, staff mainly the one behind the bar.

Thought to share my thoughts to help other guests.

Take the walk towards Santa Margherita from Portofino. It's a bit of a walk but not that far or bad. As you come around a bend in the walk path, the most incredible view of an Italian Villa on a secluded bay will surprise you.

Other than the view of Portofino Harbor from Castle Brown, it is probably one of the most stunningly beautiful scenic pictures you may ever have the privilege of taking.

Given "depth of field" concerns you may find it difficult to take a selfie. But that's OK as the picture you may catch will be more than satisfying. Check out mine below. And while you are visiting Castle Brown, put on your long range lens and catch this other view of this hidden bay that I have also attached.

A beautiful scene and one that not many know about. Go for it!

What an awful little village. Went on sunny day in July. The public beach was such a tiny sliver that it was literally impossible to find a place to put a towel. And the guys at the private beach rental places were all demanding personal bribes in addition to the posted rates. At the very least this is tax fraud. My wife had always dreamed of swimming in Portofino. What a disappointment.

Booked two "lettini" at the restaurant, "Carillon", on the "far" end of Paraggi as you proceed along the coast from Santa Margherita Ligure. Because of the price (Euro 40 per chair), the club was half empty, but we loved the fact that we were away from the "madding crowds", beaches full of kids and day-trippers. Ordered wine from the restaurant, and a great way to spend the day, on the beautiful bay, surrounded by amazing architecture.

I'm very glad we did this walk to Paraggi and on to Portofino! An active way to get to Portofino. But do not do this walk in the middle of the day! Try to do it early in the morning. It's not a short walk and certainly not covered. You'll be in the sun. On the plus side, it's well marked (red carpet-style) and well paved. Still, wear good footwear and moisture wicking clothes. Keep in mind that there's no train transportation where you're going (even if you continue to Portofino). It's just a public bus, boat, or this walk. So if you walk there, you will likely be walking back unless you make an alternative plan ahead of time. My ideal day would have been to grab a panini in Santa Margherita de Liguria and eat it along the way - maybe on one of the rocky beaches. The restaurants in the area are overpriced. Of course bring a towel and swimsuit. The public beaches along the path are so pretty and would provide a welcome refreshing break from the heat! We walked back but we were exhausted - nothing a gelato can't cure, though!

In Santa Margherita, low cost activity will be walking and go to the public beach. Tourism bureau has done a fantastic job in promoting walking along the ocean coast, from Rapallo to Portofino, they have installed a red carpet. Simple thing but the sight seeing, various views, villas, beaches, gardens and access to the Parco Naturale, are worth it. If in Portofino take the time to walk back to Baia di Paraggi, amazing views with boats anchored, and the walk is in the shade. If in SM, longer walk to get there but worth it, about 4 KM. There are public accesses to the water on the rocks before you get to the beach in Paraggi. Just beautiful
