  • The Lighthouse is located at the entrance of the Bay of the same name on the slopes of the mountain. Starting from Piazza Martiri of Olivetta, you first have to reach the Church of San Giorgio. From there it winds the wonderful path, about a quarter of an hour, leading to the Punta del Capo, where is the lighthouse of Portofino. Along the way you can see wonderful palaces and villas, the Castello Brown and, especially, the lush vegetation with pines, olive trees, yew, etc. When it reaches its destination, the impact of the place is even more surprising: it does not affect much the lighthouse (white building in the second half of the 19th century) as the landscape: the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Tigullio with waves crashing against the Cliff. This place gives a sense of peace and serenity! Finally, note that here you can dive: you can see the Red gorgonia, red coral and various fish species.
