I chose to stay here because I wanted to take a ferry to Portofino and San Fruttuoso, and it was too expensive in Portofino. I was pleasantly surprised how lovely this town is! Would definitely return here! Loved Portofino too.

We traveled here for the day from Genoa. When exiting the train station bus #82 was just outside and we took it to Portofino. We stayed in Portofino a short time and took the 3 mile walk back along the water to Santa Margherita. Beautiful...More

This is a delightful town that is easy to walk around. There are many shops to visit, with great variety. There is a bit of larger square in the middle of the town. The scenery on the water is fantastic.

The town is small but perfect with little roads and small shops. Perfect for a day trip. Small cafes and bars line the road with a view of the harbour. Boat trip rentals was an amazing experience that take you around the bay to visit...More

Spent the day here while on route to Portofino. In my opinion, It blows away Portofino. Santa Margherita is MUCH BETTER! The city has everything you can imagine on a holiday. Great beach, long walks with marvelous people watching, lots of shops and tons of...More
