"Enoteca" means something like "wine store". It is a bar where you can taste local and national wines, choosing from a selected list.
Great food is also available at lunch and dinner time, ideal to accompany your drinks.
There are just a few tables.
Nights are quiet in Moneglia. There is one disco, but the main evening activity is just walking on the town boulevard, close to the beach, and sitting at the bar for a drink.
It is difficult to reach Moneglia by car. Unless you want to make a 40 kms detour on a small winding road up and down the surrounding mountains, the only connection is via a narrow tunnel that runs parallel to the coast. This 5 kms long tunnel was used by the train (now the railway has been moved 1 km in the interiors) and it is thus just a bit more than 2 mt wide and completely dark. Driving is only permitted with cars (no bycicles, no trucks) in alternate ways. There is a traffic light (19 min. red light, 1 min. green light) to allow the traffic flow in one direction or the other.
You can better reach Moneglia by train.
Mandala is an amazing little shop with hand made goods from Asia and Africa.
