Paraggi is a lovely bay surrounded by the greenery of the "Monte", located between Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino.
The village consists of a small group of residential houses, once inhabited by fishermen and millers, an ancient castle dating back to 1626 on the east side, now a private residence, a famous disco and some very fine restaurants.
Paraggi is famous for its emerald green sea and its beautiful beaches (partly equipped, partially free) that make it a much sought-after seaside resort as well as a favorite destination of many divers.
A regular bus service connects the bay to Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino. Portofino can also be reached from Paraggi via a pleasant path through the woods called "The kisses walk", which runs parallel to the main road.
We do not recommend to use the car in high season and on weekends, as the lack of parking space is always a problem.
