Savona is situated on the Ligurian coast and is the gateway to many beautiful seaside towns. Towards Nice you come across some wonderful nearby seaside resorts such as Spotorno, Noli, Finale Ligure and Alassio. In general the beaches are very well kept and the water is warm and clean. It's possible to swim in the sea up to November.
Left from Savona (Genoa direction) you come across some very famous sophisticated resorts such as Santa Margharita and Portofino. These resorts tend to be more expensive but are well worth visiting.
