An unforgettable boat trip starting from Recco will take you to explore some of the most beautiful corners of the eastern Ligurian Riviera: the colourful Camogli, the western cliff of the Portofino Promontory with the village of San Rocco clinging to the rocks, and the wild Punta Chiappa with one end plunging into the sea. Many swimmers come here in summer to swim in the clear waters, and in winter, it is a destination for excursions to eat a sandwich in a breath-taking setting. Here, from April to September you can observe the tonnarella [tuna fishing area] of Camogli, the only that remains in Liguria and one of the few in Italy. Slow Food Presidium since May 2011, it still uses a traditional, highly sustainable fishing system.

Once Punta Chiappa is passed, along the southern coasts of the Promontory you will see the inlet of Cala dell'Oro, an integral reserve of the Protected Marine Area of Portofino, and the small village of San Fruttuoso di Camogli, embedded in a deep bay that can only be reached on foot or by boat.
Known all over the world for its architectural and natural beauty, San Fruttuoso has kept intact its antique character of a fishing village and its monastery heritage. Do not miss the chance to visit the millenary Benedictine Abbey and the sixteenth-century Doria Tower.
Not far from the coast, with a simple viewer you can observe the Cristo degli Abissi, a bronze statue by Guido Galletti placed in the depths of San Fruttuoso in 1954.

To greet The Mountain - which is called locally the Portofino Promontory - you will be offered a romantic aperitif on board with typical local products, served of course with Ligurian white wine.

Depending on the season, you can taste authentic delights such as the famous cheese focaccia of Recco, Genoese focaccia, a savoury vegetable Easter pie and other vegetable pies, in addition to cold cuts and cheeses produced in the valleys of the hilly Ligurian hinterland.
