Swimming with mermaids in Cinque Terre

Swimming with mermaids in the Cinque Terre is finally possible because, let’s face it, who has not dreamed of it at least once!

Inspired by Luca, the new Disney – Pixar film set in Cinque Terre version balancing itself between true local tradition and dream, this summer you will be able to live a unique and unforgettable experience: swimming with mermaids and discovering the wonderful seabed of the Cinque Terre Marine Protected Area.

After a brief introduction to basic free-diving techniques, on August 21st and September 11th in the afternoon, from 4:30 pm to 6 pm, you can dive and snorkel with the mermaids.

The experience costs € 40 per person, and this year it does not include masks and snorkeling kits, which due to Covid-19 regulations, cannot be rented. Don’t forget your own to enjoy the swim fully!

Swimming in Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre National Park is famous for its hiking trails. Still, we have also had swimming paths for some years now, starting from the villages of Vernazza, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

The swimming lanes are delimited by buoys connected by peaks, made with environmentally friendly materials as part of the NEPTUNE project, and follow the coastline, allowing you to swim and snorkel in safety and tranquility.

The project aims to apply common systems of sustainable management of underwater heritage at a transboundary level, raising the awareness of managers and users about the natural and cultural value of transboundary underwater heritage.

The swimming lanes in the Cinque Terre

  • In Riomaggiore, the path, about 200 meters long, starts from the eastern corner of the Fossola beach up to Lama Crexia.
  • In Manarola, it is about 300 meters long and starts from Punta Bonfiglio to get to the beginning of the Corniglia beach.
  • In Vernazza, it develops for about 600 meters, starting from the beach and connecting Vernazza and Monterosso al Mare.
