Moneglia Things to Do

  • The castle

    This castle, called "Castello di Monleone" is a bit uphill, 5 minutes from the centre. Its not such an old building (it dates back to the 19th century) and its architecture is a bit in contrast with the rest of the town.Most of this castle has been converted into a luxury hotel with just 5 rooms.The castle is surrounded by a beautiful park and...

  • The "carrugio"

    The old centre of Moneglia still has some narrow streets, called "carrugio" in local dialect, that date back to the medieval age.As there is always shadow, they are pleasantly cool in summer. There are some bars and a few local shops.

  • The beach (2)

    In winter months the beach is virtually deserted, but on a sunny day you still can enjoy it. Sea water is then a bit cold to swim (though german and sacandinavian tourists sometimes do), but laying in the sun is OK.

  • The beach (1)

    The beautiful sandy beach is about 1 kms long and it is protected from the waves by some rocks about 100 mt from the shore.Water is thus pleasantly warm from May to October and it is ideal for kids.

    "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.

    The entrance of the coastal tunnel

    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.
    Most of the handicrafts come from India and the selection and quality are very good.
