Description

This is a steep trail with switchbacks and stairs that takes you from Pietre Strette down to the lovely beach at San Fruttuoso. The trail is nicely shaded and there is at least one potable water outlet on the trail. You might see goats grazing on your hike as you approach the village. The guard tower overlooking the beach dates from the 1500s. The beach consists of smooth stones, and lounge chairs are available for rent. Restaurants serve drinks and food and the swimming is great and refreshing!

The view of San Fruttuoso from the guard tower. The smooth stone beach has very clear water and great swimming, perfect after a nice day on the trails.
