If you have enough of the crowd of the 5 Terra? Go for the Bay of Silence! Beautiful Spot and less crowdy😜

Very cute little bay, almost like a hidden town in the town of Sestri. Family friendly and clear blue waters, great to swim or sip a good wine on the terrace of Citto Beach Bar. Must see.

A little marvel of a gulf with the quietest sea and some nice hotels, restaurants, and bars. Perfect for a little holiday!
