Levanto, surfing paradise

Did you know that Levanto (in the Cinque Terre National Park area) is one of the world's surfing paradises? Here you can surf in the whole bay, all year round! Levanto is always crowded with foreign sportsmen, coming to try out its waves. When the sea is rough, the waves go up to 4 metres! A challenge to be faced only if you are well trained! With nothing to envy to Puerto Escondido, for example.
