We came via boat from Portofino. Abbey is very easy to access. There is a guide (handout) in English which explains a lot of the site. The signs include English. The place is spectacular.

You can only get here by foot or by ferry but you should stop for a visit. Entering from the water the views are beautiful and the small cove and Abbey are gorgeous.

Only by boat or foot, the place is enchanting, with three little restaurants (two on the beach) and the Abbazia to visit. Small very nice beach, only for respectful visitors. The kind of very precious place.

Agree with Ana. Went there last month and we hiked through but it's so small you can keep an eye on your stuff while swimming. Enjoy!
