The natural heritage of the Ligurian Riviera

State Protected Marine Area of the Island of Bergeggi

The Protected Marine Area of Bergeggi was established in 2007 and includes both the waters surrounding the island and the stretch of sea up to the coast at Punta del Maiolo and Punta Predani. Located in front of the municipality of the same name, the island is covered in Mediterranean scrub and is characterised by its biodiversity, from the variety of natural scenery to its variety of animal and plant species. You cannot visit the island, but you are permitted to snorkel, dive and enjoy water activities such as canoeing and SUP.

The Gallinara Island Regional Nature Reserve (Albenga)

Due to its pristine habitat and its historical, environmental and cultural value, Gallinara Island is a protected nature reserve. Located opposite Albenga, it is a private island, which is why it cannot be visited, but boat trips, diving and water activities in the surrounding area are possible.

Beigua Regional Natural Park - UNESCO Global Geopark (Varazze)

The Beigua Regional Natural Park is the largest protected area in Liguria. Geologically, it is an extremely important place for our region with fossils and mineralisations to be found there, and since 2005 it has been part of the international network as a European and World Geopark. Since November 2015, it has been recognised as a UNESCO site, and also listed as a Global Geopark - UNESCO Global Geoparks. It extends between the municipalities of Arenzano, Campo Ligure, Cogoleto, Genoa, Masone, Rossiglione, Sassello, Stella, Tiglieto and Varazze. It is in effect a rocky balcony overlooking the sea, and a place not to be missed as it has amazing biodiversity.
