After a day of hiking through the beautiful Cinque Terre region, the best thing to do before devouring a delicious seafood dinner is to relax under the sun.
Vernazza may not have a proper beach, it does however, feature large rocks around the natural seaport. You will often find people sunbathing on the rocks or perhaps take a little soak in the warm mediterranean water. Jump in and join them, you won't regret it.
My favorite spot are the rocks right behind the church. Most people tend to not walk down the long path so it is much less crowded.
