Varazze Things to Do
The main purpose for coming to Varazze and the surrounding areas on the riviera is the seaside leisure. Varazze itself is perhaps not the best beach resort, since the beach is in the center and overcrowded, but maybe someone likes that? I preferred less populated the beaches in the outskirts.

On all of the organized beaches, there are restaurants/bars where you can have a snack, drink or lunch. This one is a domestic cuisine mini restaurant, with not big choice of dishes, mostly pasta and fried fish/sea food, as well as italian specialties like prosciutto ham with melon (odd combination I never heard of before!)
It's a real beach atmosphere and it's not expensive, but it's a problem to find the table during the lunch hour!
The view on the sea and beach is lovely!

If you park along the main road before the town, you can at least enjoy the nice view.
The water is VERY clean, however, it's not too transparent. Strong waves make it a bit murky, especially in the sand beach areas.
