I need to hang out with the boat around Liguria for a few weeks in August. Which is not really a bad thing... but it is high season and I have no wish to fight over marina spaces and pay the famous riviera fees
. So I wonder, are there any good places where one can drop anchor
around this coast?
A quick look at satellite
pictures suggests, there are possibly a few places one can anchor
just outside Nice and Antibes in France
... then there is La Spezia 100 miles to the east, at the very far end of Liguria, which also looks nice.
The only option in-between seems to be, just possibly, a few coves outside Rapallo / Portofino / Santa Margherita Ligure.
I will get maps and hopefully a pilotage book once I get closer to the area. Just trying to plan a bit ahead, for now.
Did I miss something? Are there restrictions or problems I should know about, regarding the above spots?
Any other tips also welcome, about how to enjoy this particular coast in the high season.
