Cavi di Lavagna
Cavi di Lavagna is a beach, squeezed between Lavagna and Sestri Levante, truly mythical in our imagination. It is the first idea that usually comes to mind when we have half a day free to dedicate to the sea. "Come on, let's go to Cavi", and you're sure not to make a mistake. Whoever leaves the old new road is said to be deceived. This does not happen to Cavi. There is the usual routine. Same beach, same sea. Friends, soccer. The jog along the promenade, the queue on the A12 highway in the evening to return.

The Cavi di Lavagna beach it is the continuation of the free beach of Lavagna. It is a perfectly straight coastline over 1 km long, where the railway runs next to the Aurelia and divides the pedestrianized Labonia waterfront from the row of parking lots. If on the one hand this requires the inconvenience of accessing the sea through scary underpasses, dark and narrow under the railway grounds, on the other hand it greatly relaxes the feeling of a volra that you are on the seafront. There is no traffic nearby, children can run and play free, there is no comeback of scooters and parking disputes.o.
Then we went down to the beach, we will find ourselves in front of a very beautiful sea. A sandy beach that gradually gets closer to the shore becomes more stony and pebbly, and whose bottom slopes down very quickly: two or three steps, and we are ready to swim. There is never a shortage of showers, always free, and even in the free bits there is always a bar for a snack or a drink within reach of flip-flops. There free beach of Cavi di Lavagna it is also very popular with locals, Genoese, and not just tourists: it can therefore be very crowded, especially on Sundays.

The Cavi di Lavagna dog beach is located towards the end of the Labonia seafront, it is small, not equipped but equipped with a shower and a water hose. It is found sheltered behind a breakwater "brush", which protects from the most challenging waves and slightly isolates it from the context and from the "standard" swimmers.
