    Turquoise

    by Aurorae Written Aug 25, 2005
    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: When the sun comes up, the sea has enchanting turquoise colour! It changes to lead when it's cloudy, unfortunately...

    The rock that you can see far behind is a favourite spot for diving, however, it's fatal as on the top of it there is a vase with flowers with a note for someone who died jumping from it. So, be careful!
    Much better use is to just sit there and observe with binoculars, as many are doing.

    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: In Lévanto you'll find all types of beach - sandy, pebbled, rocky or mixed. Sandy is very rare, though, and in most occasions it will be a small part together with pebbles. Also, you can find this ultra small almost sand alike pebbles.

    Favorite thing: There are PLENTY of scuba divers in Lévanto (in Italian they're called simply "sub" :-) but this guys were sooo FUNNY! Have you ever seen scuba divers crawling out of the sea?! I haven't! All the others were walking out normally, but these twop were hilarious!

    Foam

    by Aurorae Written Aug 25, 2005
    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: On the rocks the sea will splash (the waves dasshing against the shore) creating white foam over the rocks. I love to watch that. If you like it too, then go to the end of the beach where the rocky area begins, as you won't find it on the main city beach (the one overcrowded with beds and umbrellas).

    The Sea

    by Aurorae Written Aug 25, 2005

    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: The sea at the beach is quite different, depending from where you positioned yourself. In the "open sea" beaches (those unprotected by huge molos) you'll always find big waves and very upset sea, that will roll the pebbles and sand and make the entrance a bit murky. If you don't like to swim in the very wild sea, this would not be a place for you.
    There is one small section of the mini beach at the end of the city, where marina ends, where is a lovely beach protected by the looooong rocky molo that blocks the waves, so the interior is vry peaceful. Especially suitable for kids.

    covered boats

    by Aurorae Written Aug 25, 2005
    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: The other side of marina was odd, because although it was summer, most of the boats were out of the sea and covered, as if "stored" for the winter! Maybe it's a rain protection, I'm not an expert, but it certainly looked peculiar.

    Marina

    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: Lévanto has a HUGE marina, one of its fraction you can see on this picture, and behind is the small beach. The main beach with umbrellas and lots of beach bars is on the left side.
    Marina was very busy (of course, it was summer :-) and in spite of the gloomy weather and very wild seas everyone seemed to be keen on their boat rides.

    The beach

    L��vanto by Jelena

    Favorite thing: This is how the beach i Lévanto looks like.
    The sea is turquoise, it smells wonderfully, and the beach is mostly with pebbles, but there are sandy parts, too, the rocks and little little almost sandy pebbles.
