Isolated and splendid, wild and hospitable. Moneglia is one of the pearls of the East

The beach, the sea promenade, the clean and orderly village, the bell tower, the green surrounding it – Moneglia has got what it takes to be an example of a bathing resort. Perfect for families and for those who are with children, who here can run free and without any dangers because traffic and stress are always far away.

The eating and drinking places dotted along the coast in the evening, like many eyes open on the horizon, the restaurants that offer the best fish, give it something more. Like every Ligurian seaside village, Moneglia too has its medieval caruggio that cuts in two the centre, hemmed in among houses with coloured façades and Renaissance portals in graven slate and the two churches to the east and the west of the village

The main traffic route, once taken by farmers, fishermen, merchants and pilgrims, the caruggio today is the showcase of Moneglia, where it is nice to walk after having left the beach, looking around and purchasing things in the shops that enliven the street.
Moneglia is also a starting point for those who want to know the submerged world: it is easy to meet morays, congers and octopuses, but also sea stars, sea anemones and gorgonias in a succession of colours and shapes. The beach at the centre of the bay, a fine golden sand beach, is surrounded by rocks stretching out into the sea and perfumed by Mediterranean maquis. The territory of Moneglia towards Punta Rospo is rich in little hidden bays and is crossed by a network of paths that climb towards the mountains.
