The Bay of Silence is a very picturesque beach in Sestri Levante. In the summer it gets very busy but I would definitely recommend a stroll along the beach and a paddle or swim in the water. There are not many bars/restaurants alongside the beach - you need to go to the streets behind.

This is an absolute beauty. We arrived later in the afternoon and walked around the town but this spot stole my heart. Beautiful little bay, lovely locals and kids still playing on the beach. Definitely coming back here.

Very relaxing beach and the water is beautiful and clean. I went in September and it was reasonably busy, so it expect it would get extremely busy in the peak season

Very picturesque, lots of small boats and great to just chill out. Plenty of things to do around the bay, shops, food and activities.

The setting is idyllic and a great place to relax. Beautiful throughout even the weather was nice. Proximity to transport, restaurants and prime sites that make a very pleasant stay. Even shops are nearby but not necessarily department stores.

Don't go to crowded, commercial Portofino...go to the REAL Italian Riviera for quiet, peaceful views, wonderful people, and relaxed reasonable shopping (If you can tear yourself away from the scenery!!) I have never been a more wonderfilled place!!!

This area viewed from hotel areas as well as bedroom. Great place to sit down for a drink and watch what is going on round about.
