Riomaggiore  is the first of the Cinque Terre one meets when travelling north from La Spezia.

It does not have its own beach but it still is on the water.  The sea is not visible from the village’s main street.

If  you would rather not  sit or lie on the rocks to sun tan or swim in the sea at this village, I suggest you take the train to the sandy beaches of Monterosso or go to Portovenere.

Riomaggiore has an exciting feel about it, certainly not to be missed when visiting the Cinque Terre
