Recommended itinerary for a weekend

with boarding in Genoa

On Saturday morning we sail from Porto Antico, crossing the great Port of Genoa (the arrival in the open sea takes about 20 minutes) and we sail eastwards along the beautiful city of Genoa that from the sea takes on a unique charm, typical of the Genoese fishing villages.

After 9 miles you reach Camogli (the entrance to the port is not recommended for shallow waters) to enjoy the colors of the town from the sea. The belay is possible 1 Mile further south before Punta Chiappa.

Another 2 miles of navigation leads to San Fruttuoso di Camogli: a Benedictine monastery of the year 1000 set in a small cove between the sea and the woods of the Portofino Promontory. Possibility of mooring only at buoys available for a fee in the period April/ September. Not recommended to spend the night given the frequent undertow. You can not go ashore with your tender but only with taxi boat service.

Continuing you reach the Punta di Portofino in just over 2 miles and the beautiful Portofino, characterized by a colorful and very suggestive village. The stop in port for a fee is allowed after sending the required documentation (poor availability during the summer). Possibility of mooring at anchor for a few hours in front of the village or the harbor of Paraggi.

For a night stop at anchor we recommend the roadstead in front of the village of Santa Margherita Ligure or by also booking in the port (this is 1.5 miles north of Portofino going up the Gulf of Tigullio). We recommend a walk on land to visit the village.

We return to Genoa late Sunday afternoon.
