Best beaches not far from Genoa

Hello! Can you advice me the best beaches not far from Genoa. And how to reach them. May be some secret places, free and paid. Thanks.

To the east, maybe Bogliasco or Camogli, both very pretty, pebbles, reasonable amounts of free beach.

To the west, nearest is Arenzano but this is narrow and crowded. Much nicer nearby beaches, with sand, are at Varazze and Celle Ligure but the free beach areas are tiny, they're mostly pay beaches.

No beach anywhere near Genoa is 'secret'!

From Camogli you can take the boat to the incredible San Fruttuoso, which because of it's relative difficulty to get to, usually has fewer people - but because it is so small, on weekends that can seem like quite a large group.

Or for strong swimmers on a calm day, swim off the rocks at Punta Chiappa, the boat stop half-way between Camogli and San Fruttuoso. Not a beach as such, but people do it, and I suspect it's never ever crowded.
