Camogli is a charming fishing village on a rocky outcrop. Camogli has a nice beach with bathing establishments and a small harbor with shops and restaurants. Many of its colorful houses feature Trompe L'Oeil treatments. There's a carousel near the water and a big square where children play and people sit and chat. Camogli has an interesting old town section, too.

From Camogli you can visit San Fruttuoso, an isolated fishing village reached only by sea or a 3-hour hiking trail. There'a a path to the village of Portofino, too. In May, Camogli holds a huge fish festival, the sagra del pesce.

Camogli has a train station and can be reached by ferry from Genoa.
