Punta Chiappa is a little corner of paradise where nature meets history and traditions.
Characterized by a sharp stretch of land, la punta (the point) reaches the sea from the Portofino Promontory, as being part of the Portofino Natural Park, the Marine Protected Area and the Municipality of Camogli. Once considered as a cardinal site by fishermen, this ancient fishing village is today used to enhance the culture of the sea and the fishing traditions, especially by restaurants and the Fishing Museum. An enjoyable boat ride connects Punta Chiappa to Camogli, otherwise a beautiful path from San Rocco reaches Punta Chiappa, passing through San Nicolò di Campodimonte, across ancient holm oaks on a wild and suggestive trail. Either ways, the view is enchanting!
Once the destination is reached, having a swim, snorkelling or diving are a must: in this special location, in fact, it is possible to encounter a wonderful variety of fish along the coast.
The shape of the sea bottom, rich of rocks and clefts, creates the perfect environment for groupers, amberjacks, sea breams and octopus, while the currents that brush the outer surface facilitate the growth of blooming sea fans. Impossible not to remain enchanted by this unspoilt corner of paradise.
