By far the better of the 2 beaches in Sestri Levante. Extremely busy in day time, but wander back here at night and enjoy a drink by the sea. Really lovely and then truly the Bay Of Silence

Walking along the Baia delle Favole was peaceful and quiet, so we were very surprised how noisy the Bay of Silence was today! Rolling seas created crashing waves and bobbing boats. Lots of people still crowding the beaches and restaurants full. Turquoise seas. Magic

I love it to visit this beach from time to time. Off course overcrowded but that’s the charm of it. At as well, when all the crowd is gone, it’s a lovely place.

This is our second time visiting this bay. Parking can be hard so consider public transport or a hotel with parking. So wonderful to see disabled beach access.

The beach is nice and when warm is full of locals. Can be hard to find a spot. But very central and the water is nice. I would prefer the other side - but you need to buy the sun beds.
