The cove of Lerici and the Fossola church: two secrets places in La Spezia even for locals
The Cove of Lerici and the Church of the Guardian Angels in Fossola: dream places, often little known, even from locals
The Gulf of Poets and the La Spezia area have many wonderful hidden corners.
Some are well known and popular, others are almost ignored by beachgoers, as many do not know how they exist. Others simply do not know how to reach them.
Among these are the Cove of Lerici and the Church of the Guardian Angels in Fossola, embellishing the opposite shores of the gulf of La Spezia. They are often posted on social media, with people around the world asking: “How do I get there?”

If you look at pictures, with that rock in the middle of the sea reflecting the green of the surrounding vegetation, the Lerici Cove could be mistaken for the shooting setting of the film ‘The Beach’, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
But it isn’t! It is only one of several beautiful bays that open along the coast that leads from Lerici to Tellaro, via Fiascherino .
A place appreciated by photographers, who can shoot as if they were in the Caribbean, with a reef and the background of the Tino island. The small beach is never crowded because the path to access it is not clearly stated (and people who know the way tend to keep it secret).
In fact, there is no secret! Walking to Tellaro from Lerici, on the right, you will see a green gate preceded by a small square. The staircase leading down to the cove beach is located there.
