A stunning view of Cinque Terre National Park

General

  • Scenic site near Cinque Terre National Park and Portofino
  • Shuttle bus to the local beach and train station in all seasons
  • Playground, modern bathrooms and seasonal shop selling cheese and wine

Get with ease from Camping La Sfinge to a golden sandy beach or out and about in the region: the amiable owners here lay on a free shuttle bus to the nearby sands and to the local train station all the year long.

And what a lot there is to see with either journey. La Sfinge is in Liguria's La Spezia province, the spectacularly scenic home of the famed Cinqe Terre coastline on the Italian Riviera, part of the Cinque Terre National Park. This alone could keep you scenically and sandily occupied for weeks, but La Spezia's also the setting of Porto Venere Regional Natural Park and Palmaria Island; Italy's biggest naval base in La Spezia city, picworthy pretty villages like Brugnato, Montemarcello and Tellaro... and has splendidly easy access by train to major Italian destinations like Milan, Florence and Pisa.

Your scenic base (see pics) for all this is a quiet, greenly pleasant and family-friendly site, well maintained by a helpful team happy to help out with any info or tips you might need on the region – you might, perhaps, decide to meander from village to local village along the craggy coastal path...? Or cast off from the coast instead: La Sfinge is five kilometres from the small village of Deiva Marina, hailed as a top angling spot in all seasons.

On site, facilities include modern bathrooms with hot water available around the clock, hairdryers and disabled access. From Easter to October, a shop sells groceries including fruit, veg, bread, milk and local meat, cheese and wine.

The site also has a playground – not that the kids might need it if they're shuttling back and forth daily between the site and the beach...

Please note

Not bad, but we’ve stayed in much better campsites. 06/08/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Tim D. Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass tent pitch (six man)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Friendly staff who were very accommodating when we decided to leave early due to the heat. It is near the beach, but that beach was very crowded and hard to enjoy whilst we were there. Good sized pitch with plenty of natural shade.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets and showers were not very clean. There was no soap dispenser in the toilet block and the campsite has virtually no amenities. The local shop wasn’t great and the fruit was quite rotten. The beach was close, but not great. It should be mentioned that we were in the midst of the European heat wave in 2018 and the temperature was in the high 30’s.

    location to Chique Terra

    Disliked: 

    Our stay here was very difficult as the staff were particularly unhelpful. We arrived late afternoon in scorching temperatures and were placed on a pitch very high up on a hill accessable by many steps and far away from shower and wash facilities. we couldn’t access the pitch from our our van and had to carry everything (including a heavy double dog crate). Although we paid for electricity we were told than no extensions were available and we had to scout around the camp looking for a spare cable. We would not recommend the site

    A bit painful if you're in a tent without a blow-up mattress, and difficult to get tent pegs in the ground.

Local attractions

The spectacular Cinque Terre National Park, Italy's first, is one of the most popular places in the land for seaside and nature spotting hols: aim to bag as much time here as humanly poss.

The park includes five villages accessible by train: Monterosso (35 minutes), Vernazza (40 minutes), Corniglia (45 minutes), Riomaggiore (50 minutes) and Manarola (an hour and 10 minutes), all very much worth a look. There are lengthy coastal trails to tackle too, such as the Via dell’Amore or Lovers’ Way, connecting the five Cinque Terre villages via stunning views over the sea.

Closer to home, the little seaside resort of Deiva Marina has sandy beaches surrounded by green mountains, teeny coves only reachable by boat, and nature trails in the hills all around. Book a fishing or whale watching trip at the Deiva Marina tourist office, or set off on a hike into the hills – one trail runs alongside the coast for more seaside views and another snakes inland and up the Apennine mountains.

Snorkelling, diving, windsurfing and canoeing are also easy to access close by. Climbing is available 200 metres from the site.
