Corniglia is the only one of the Cinque Terre not to have a direct access to the sea. Nevertheless, it has perhaps the most famous beach: the beach of Guvano, well known for nudism and in the Seventies for the hippies.
It is located in a wonderful bay between Corniglia and Vernazza, and can be reached in two ways: taking a trekking path along the "Sentiero Azzurro" (Blue Path), which costs 3 euros and takes approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. You need to head to Vernazza and then down to the left after 10-15 minutes, following a "Freebeach" sign. Or easily from the abandoned nineteenth railroad tunnel Genova-Spezia, well reported by the station Corniglia. Arriving to an unlikely metal gate, you need to ring to enter an illuminated tunnel. It costs of 5 euros, which are charged at the end of it and takes about 15 minutes.
The beach is made up of sand and stones and retains all its evocative suggestion.
